Why does my 2000 maxima pull to the right and start shaking after 60 mi . an hour


Tire not balanced. Bearing bad. Strut bad. Alignment. An unbalanced tire can take out the strut and alignment. Which can eventually takeout the bearing.

Replaced gimbal bearing and can not get the alingnment tool to go in.


Check the factory tool with the shaft. Count the splines/teeth. I doubt they are balanced , but make sure there isn't set place the shaft has to go into. I would most likely say you received the wrong part. Factory, doesn't mean right. Especially dealing with a 98.

Whats makes the front end shake if you have replaced the brakes, roders, caliperes, and everything else that has to do with the brakes


Front end vibration has little to do with the brake system on the car. Yes you can get some "brake shudder" when you apply the brakes when you have worn brake rotors or when the rotors are not properly aligned on the hubs. However from what you have said you do not have this problem.

Front end vibrations can be caused by a number of factors some of which are listed below:



1. Front wheels out of balance. (Common problem on many vehicles).

When were the front wheels last balanced? You will get vibrations through the car and the steering wheel at particular speeds. This will/could also occur if the wheel rims have been distorted as a result of abuse.

As a first step the wheels should be balanced and then retest the vehicle for the problem.

It can be impossible to properly balance some wheels because the tires fitted to the rims are of poor quality and contain heavy spots that are impossible to correct with wheel balance weights. If you have cheap tires fitted on the wheel rims then it may be impossible to balance the wheels properly because of the imperfections in the tyre. In that case you will have a permanent wheel vibration problem which will only be rectified by fitting good quality tires and re-balancing the front wheels.

If aftermarket wheel rims have been fitted to the vehicle this can also be a source of vibration. Some wheels on the market are poor quality and can be slightly out of round and/or have heavy spots in them which can be impossible to correct when you fit the tires and have the wheels balanced. Many people think a cheap set of "blingy" aftermarket wheels are a great buy but if they are poorly built (as is often the case) you will usually have no end of problems.

2. The front wheel alignment could be out.
If the front wheels have not been aligned in the past 12 months they probably will be out of alignment. When you have re-balanced the front wheels you should have the front wheel alignment checked and then re-aligned if it is out. However if their are worn suspension components (see 4) found on the car which need to be replaced, this repair needs to be done before the front wheels are re-aligned.

3. Worn out wheel bearings in the front hubs.
If your front wheel bearings are badly worn you can get a vibration through the steering wheel. If the vehicle has done about 100000 miles or more on the front wheel bearings they should be replaced. In any event , any competent mechanic can jack up the front of the car and check for excess play in the wheel bearings.

4. Worn out suspension components. The front end of the car should be checked for badly worn suspension and steering components.

I would recommend you take the vehicle to a competent mechanic or a suspension specialist in your area and have them check the vehicle for you.

I hope this helps.

I have a 99 ford Taurus and i will change the ball joint '' both sides'' so do i have to do front alignment and wheels balance ? Or i just can do the front alignment ?! Thank you so much


You will not have to have the wheels balanced but an alignment is a good idea.You are not affecting the balance by changing the ball joints

WHY DOES MY FRONT RIGHT TIRE SIDE VIBRATE ON MY 2004 YUKON


Tire vibration can be caused by a few things. Here's what to check:
1. Check the tire inflation. Make sure it's at the recommended pressure.
2. Have a local tire shop check your tire balance. If a tire is out of balance you'll notice the vibration at speeds above 50mph.
3.Wheel alignment. If the alignment is out, the tire will show uneven wear and can cause vibration also.
4. If a front wheel bearing is going out, it can cause vibration, but since your car is only 5-6 years old, this probably isn't the case.
Hope this helps you narrow it down.
Best of success!

CAR VIBRATES DURING ACCALERATION AT 30-60MPH


When was the last time you had a wheel balance and alignment?? Most shaking occurs because of mis-alignments and wheels out of balance. If you need an alignment I suggest a 4-wheel alignment versus a 2-wheel alignment.
If these have been done: Based on the year 1993 and the amount of driving:
When was the last time the ball joints, tie rod joints and wheel bearings were checked or inspected?? Any one of these three (or combination) could also cause vibrations.
Is your Transmiision Fluid at the correct level. When was the last time the fluid and filter were changed?
Check the above first before any drastic conclusions.
The A604 Transmission has had many problems. One of which is a fluttering valve inside the solenoid unit, causing rough (shuddering) accelerations. Some of these were solved by merely changing the fluid and/or filter. I do not recommend the Fushing method due to the fact the filter is not changed.

Vibration at 70mph after new tires and alignment and much trouble shooting


it could be as easy as checking to see if you have a dented rim.....

or as expensive as changing the "constant velocity joints" but only if it is a front wheel driven car.....

how are your shocks?

have they repacked the rear bearings..."but only if not rear wheel driven car"
