If the wheel alignment is faulty ( castor wobble ) at 70 mph there is no way that you can describe it as a vibration as it virtually rip the steering wheel out of your hands. If it is a torque converter problem then at around 3850-4025 rpm stationary there will be a vibration of the vehicle and engine The sort of vibration that you are experiencing at 70 mph will come from a drive line problem. If rear wheel drive then it could be faulty "U" joints, worn slip joint or failed rear engine mount
If front wheel drive it may be cv joints or bent drive shafts,wheel bearings or brake callipers not moving freely on the mounting bolts.

I don't think we are quite understanding the problem. Have someone drive it and determine what is wrong. You cannot disconnect the TC without removing the trans and I guess this isn't what you mean?

My 1999 ford expidition sounds like its shifting in overdrive when i reach about 40 miles per hour, the engine gets loud sounds a jet taking off.


You have it backwards

What you hear is engine noise from
higher rpm, because your trans is not
upshifting, as a result of your input on
the gas pedal

You need to have a trans or repair shop find out why
you have a delayed or no shift condition

When you get to 4th or 5th gear (overdrive) you also
get torque converter lock-up & things should get quieter

Does the catalytic converter has anything to do with the transmission


catalytic converter part is part of the exhaust system, torque converter part of transmission.if catalytic plugged car will only go 10 miles and hour, if you have torque converter problems car will stall out when you drive 30 miles and hour, when transmission goes in over drive, torque converter lock up.when you apply brakes torque converter suppose to unlock if not car will stall out when you come to a stop.

Hi, I have a 2001 Buick. We just replaced the front tires. Shortly after that we noticed the car vibrates at around 45 to MPH, after we get past this mph the vibration stops. It is not worse when we turn...


Let me see know at 45 miles per hour a vehicle usually shifts gears into the highest gear so could it be the torque converter hanging up and not shifting quick enough or maybe its the U joints. Have the transmission fluid checked for proper level and color.
Here's a small test for you when your accelerating up to 55 miles per hour try letting off the pedal at 44 miles per hour and then reaccelerating up to the 55 mph and tell me if it`s smoother if it is then chances are that it`s hang up on third gear. There's also a electric sensor located on transmission that assist shifting it`s usually controlled by the engine timing.
One more thing did the repair man check to see if the tires where directional tires if there not put on right it could cause vibration and early wear out .Hope i helped you.

1999 Continental Shudder when shifting into third gear.


It will be one of 2 things. It is either the lock up torque converter or a coil pack miss-fire.
You can tell if it is the lock up torque converter by lightly applying brakes with your other foot during the concern. If it goes away then it is the lock up torque converter. If it hasn't been doing this for to long then servicing it and putting an additive in it usually corrects it. However it takes about 75 to 100 miles to do so. If that doesn't cure it you will have to replace the torque converter and depending on how it looks maybe the stator support and the TCC solenoid.
If it is a miss fire then it will probably show up under mode 6 data on a scan tool and replacing that spark plug and coil pack should remedy that.
