Question about Cars & Trucks

I have a 09 Pontiac g6. While driving the car shakes real bad and pulls to the left. I'm thinking a bad tie rod or tires need to be balanced. Any suggestions on what it could be?

SOURCE: shakes real bad

You Probably need to Have the Tires ReBalanced. Maybe even the Front end Realigned. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Have you checked the U-joints in the rear drive shaft? Also did this happen before the tires were replaced? Take the truck back to where you got the tires and have them check the balance, they should do this for free.

This could be a lot of things, CV joint, tie rods, wheel bearings, even loose lug nuts.

SOURCE: Have a 2005 Maxima that shakes at the wheel at 45

Have you tried swapping tires, front to back,back to front, to see if any difference? Try running same speed, (if you can do it without over revving engine) in a different gear, either higher or lower doesn't matter, just to see if there is any relation to engine RPM's & shake. Is this an automatic or manual shift?

The driver side tire on my Nissan Altima shakes badly I've changed the brakes but I'm wondering if I need to change the lower control arm

Can you grab the tire/wheel assembly and it has looseness while stationary or is it a shake that starts when speed increases?
If it starts to shake as speed increases,you may need a wheel balance.
If there is any looseness when you grab it while stationary,get a look under there SAFELY!! and replace any loose parts.

2006 Pontiac G6.. When accelerating the car pulls slightly to the left and when I let off it pulls back to the right. there is also a popping sound when turning. What could be the cause. My guess

it sounds like a ball joint or tie rod . you can jack up the front of the car and check one tire at a time, jack it up high enough to get the tire off the ground and shake it for play

Left Tire Jerks when moving in any direction, could not drive it home as I was concerned that I might ruin something and cause a bigger problem. What do you think the problem could be?

if the left tyre is shaking then check wheel nuts ,but without a good look its difficult to speculate but i would suspect a deformed tyre which would be caused by the sun but in extreme circumstances freezing conditions might possibly cause it as well

What would be the reasons my car's front end shakes when i drive? and it gets worse as i go?

Alignment, bad tie rod end(s), bad strut(s), bad ball joint(s), tire(s) out of balance, tire(s) out of round.

Suggest you take it to a local major chain tire store or parts store offering service (Pep Boys, for example)

2006 Pontiac G6 front wheel vibration

sounds like your front end is worn out and yes tie rod ends are a common source of this problem along with out of balance tires and seperated tire cords, any tire store will inspect your car for free and give you an estimate to repair.

2006 Pontiac G6 wheel vibration

Tie rod ends do not have bushings (ball and socket like your hip). If vibration begins at 50-55 but goes away at slightly higher speed, it could be caused by wheel balance. Once balance has been checked jack up each front wheel and shake them back and forth and check for any loose steering components. If reasonably tight, My guess is that you have a bad hub bearing. If you don't know how to change them, get a manual to guide you (chiltons or haynes are OK for this). Pretty much it is a bolt out bolt in procedure and not terribly difficult except that sometimes the hub is rusted in and is a bear to get out. Need any help with that, just ask.
Note...many bad hub bearings show no obvious defects...but can create a strong vibration...just determine which side is noisy and change it. Scrapyard parts are inexpensive and generally fairly reliable as replacements.

The tire shake may be a tire that is out of balance or a bad outer tie rod end. The tank has pressure on it and when you take the cap off the pressure is relieved. Try putting the nozzle in not so far in to pump gas.
