Problem can be caused by inner or outer joints, loose or deteriorated engine transaxle mounts, or sometimes a bad intermediate shaft bearing . Check also the rubber bushings in the upper torque strap.
Unless you are an experienced car repairer, better having the checkup done by a mechanic.

Many ideas on this one, first the tires, check for uneven wear even if there seems to be lots of tread left. Next look for wear in the steering joints,.Then check the brake rotors, put your foot on the brake lightly see if it seems to be going up and down, if it is they are warped.

How will I know if 1 of the engin mountings broke or collapsed

If the car only swerves briefly it is probably an engine mounting but if the car keeps steering to one side with constant power, the problem could be suspension related.

Another sign of a faulty engine mounting is when the car vibrates from side to side under a certain constant power load, usually very low power like on a slight downhill. Accelerating ******* an uneven road surface with faulty engine mountings can result in a "stop-and-jump" feeling of the vehicle.

The best way might be to open the bonnet and with the brakes applied. let someone put power on first gear and next, on reverse. Check how much the engine moves. The engine should never pull to one side, but only upwards or downwards. In your case, the car pulled to the right when the engine braked the wheels. That means the engine will pull to the right of the car when the power is applied in reverse, if the engine mounting is faulty.

Severe Vibrations when driving. going 3mph + besides the wobble in steering wheel

This is very serious and I would advise not driving it AT ALL, until a cause can be identified. Although you said it's "not the front end wobble", it sure sounds like there still is something wrong in the front end and/or the alignment. It could be broken engine mounts, missing hardware/very loose control arms, steering box connections, loose steering column, transmission mounts, driveshaft bearings/mounts or even loose lug nuts on the wheels just to name a few. Please have the car safely raised on jacks and have a mechanic or knowledgeable person look underneath for broken/damaged/missing parts.

Replaced-r/l front bearings left axle seal (dealer) vibration at 50mph+ All wheel balanced plus alignment. Better but still vibration at 50+ especially when accelerating ?????

If you can feel it in the steering wheel than I would take a close look at the drive axles. Not as common as some of the other problems that can cause vibrations but definitely overlooked as a possible culprit.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

What causes slight vibration?

sounds too much like a wheel imbalance, check all the wheel nuts are tight too (I know it sounds stupid but it has happened to me) some off-road tyres have a speed limit set to around 50mph.

Vibration while accelerating Hi we have just bought a fiat punto 2007 1.3 diesel. there is a wobble to the car. the tracking is perfect when you let go of the steering wheel it goes straight for ages. had...

depending on where the vibration is from, either the tyres (could be a buckled rim, (jack it up and spin the wheel by hand and check) or it could be a drive shaft problem. It could be a bent shaft or worn knuckle. It would be better if I knew if you meant vibration or wobble and also where about in the vehicle you feel it most.

95 Plymouth Voyager harsh vibration when accelerating

Hi Ryan

Before you go for a steering rack replacement with that much play, go back to your CV joints check the shafts by turn each wheel on its own and watch closly the axles as they turn , Do they turn true or do they wobble you may have a seized CV joint find which one wobbles thats where your problem lies if they do wobble, they should not. If not go to ball joints, control arms may not be secured to chassie. Or Steering rack as you say half inch play sounds too much play something not right.

There is a wobble in the steering wheel between 80 and 90 km/h what could it be?

A steering vibration at high speeds is usually a result of front tire imbalance. A loose or worn front suspension or steering component can sometimes cause a vibration as well. You should check over all the joints (ie: tie rods, ball joints, track bar etc) and if that checks out have the front tires balanced.

Wobbling of car while accelerating

the u joints in the drive shaft. (CV joints on front wheel drive) more strss on the joints when accelerating so they cause the vibration. no stress/load smooth run. Replace the joints and you'll feel a big difference.
