SOURCE: steering whel vibration isuzu bighorn 3.1d 1992 auto

Some SUV's have a steering damper. This is like a telescopic shock absorber that is attached to the steering idler arm at one end and the chassis at the other. If the bighorn has one this may be the cause of the problem. It took me months to find a severe steering vibration problem on a Range Rover. I replaced the damper, which was quite inexpensive, and the problem went away.

SOURCE: Misfire

One question, have you replaced the ECTS (Electronic Cooling Temperature Sensor)? These cause no end of different seemingly unrelated problems on Saturns. Peice is about ten bucks and is an easy install. Just search on youtube for a how-to video. Even if that's not the problem it is reccommended to replace this peice just the same as they ALL end up going bad at some point.

If that's not a fix, start pulling plugs. Check to see if they're correctly gapped and if they have any damage/corrosion. If you're running Platinum plugs, immediatly change to a copper plug as Platinums have no place in these motors. Most people have the best luck with NGK copper.

Check to make sure that your plug wires haven't been crossed. This sounds like a plug or wire issue most likely so it has to be in that family, if the plugs are good, wires good and not crossed, sensors are fine, then time to replace your coil packs. If you've replaced everything up to the coil packs then that is most likely the cause of your dillema.

Hi this could be a very simple thing like the wheels need balancing very cheap and easy job,, failing that have the wheel bearings looked at, but most likely needs wheels balanced.
Hope this helps

It is most likely the tires. Change the tires and the vibration will disappear. J.

Whole car shakes


if the car shakes violently then have a wheel alignment done
if it is a vibration have the cv joints and drive line checked
other than that run the fault codes to check for misfiring problems.

A lost wheel weight your wheels need balancing, vibration is a common thing go to a tyre centre ask for a ballance check on all 4 wheels also check the tracking but being honest I would say balance.

I have a 2006 chev 2500 HD. The steering wheel and 4x4 shifter shake very bad at 50mph. It has had a new transfer case put in, driveshaft balanced and all four tires checked. The vibration goes away if you...


u need to check rear end with the drive shaft removed vibration goes away would lead me to believe you have bad bearings in the rear end more than likely the pinion bearing
pull cover off (while fluid draining check to see if there a lot of metal in oil )
if you do see metal in fluid or laying in rear end you need rear end rebuilt or replaced
i wouldn't recommend doing the rebuild your self because with out the special tools and knowleage u can make matters worse

94 eagle summit vibrates left to right at speeds in excess of 50mph. the steering wheel does NOT shake with the vibration. It only vibrates after driving for 40mins+.. It comes and goes, not constant. ANY...


Left to right wandering that starts after 40+ minutes means that the effect happens once something gets hot.

I'd suspect first tires or suspension (tie rods or ball joints). Could be a jamming inner CV joint, but this generally results in steering wheel shake too.

Might also be an engine misfire. Check wires, plugs and injectors.

Could also be fuel starvation on a low gas tank. Check the evaporative system.

Loss of power at 50mph + Engine and truck shake


I would check the fuel filter, it should be changed every 20,000 miles or so. Also I would check the fuel pressure at the test port. I would also check for a weak ignition coil.
