Could be a number of things from ball joints to your pitman arm(arm that steers the tires). It dont sound like tire are way out of balance because yu said it only starts when you hit a bump. If it was me, Id crawl under the front end and start shaking different parts until I figured out what was loose. if its shaking that bad you should definitly be able to tell when you shake it.

Could be a number of things. I've seen tires, steering stablizer, pitman arms, tie rods, etc etc cause this problem. Lock the steering colum, jack up the front end, BOTH SIDES, and try to turn the tires by hand. If you can move it an inch or more, it's your steering components. If not, could be your stablizer or tires. If tires are getting bad, replace those first. (fyi, steering components are easy to do, if you choose to do it yourself. A good parts store will help you with what you need if you can determin where it's loose. Might need a friend to help find the right cause.)

I have a toyota Camry 2000 and the check engine light is on and the steering wheel is shaking when driving over 40 mph


The shaking may be a separated tire.

If the check engine light is on there will be a code. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to see why the light is on.

Vibration from about 40-60 mph is usually attributed to wheel balancing, but the onset when you hit a bump seems to indicate play in the steering linkages (tie rods etc) or suspension members and stabiliser bar rubbers but you had that all checked out, that brings us back to the wheel balancing.

look to see if you have a steering shock if you do and it goes out this can accure. it will be connected to your tie rod links. if your not sure if its bad take it off and try to depress it if it goes in and does not come back out when you take pressure off of it replace shock. hope this helps.

Wheels shake terribly on 95 jeep laredo when I hit a bump over 50


Get front end checked out a.s.a.p. as this could be a part ready to go, and steering could go with it. Steering link, tie rod end, idler arm all come to mind. Personally I wouldn't drive it too far if at all, and not at a high speed until I'm sure what it is.
