When accelerating hard, the rear end shake bad soon I remove my foot form the gas it stop. If I accelerate slowly no problems. Any ideas what could be the problem. Thanks


You haven't said what make and model of car it is.

On a rear wheel drive car a worn universal joint in the driveshaft (propshaft) can cause the symptoms you describe. It's sometimes referred to as a 'yoke'.

Wear causes the universal joint/propshaft to be out of line/balance and causes the vibration when the car is moving. Another symptom is a 'clunk' when the car engages gear. That clunk noise is also caused by wear.

You can check it quite easily. get underneath the car, grip the propshaft and try and turn it clockwise/anti clockwise. If there's any movement - it's worn.

00Linc ls noise from front end sounds like tire road noise steering wheel shakes a little


Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

I have a 2011 Nissan Sentra. It has developed a loud hum and vibration to the steering wheel from the front end .it has 180,000km. Any ideas?


How are the tires? New? Old? Rotate them and see if noise goes away. Possibly front wheel bearing in the front drive axle where it goes thru the hub and rotor.......goes the noise get worse if you turn right or left slightly when driving it? If it gets worse on one side that is the side with the bad bearing.....replace as needed.

There is vibration problem when I drive over small bumps in the road. It is NOT a mettalic sound but more of a thud, thud thus sound. I changed the struts but it the sound is still there. We are not...


Gm has had issues with the steering colomn shafts and they get dry and cause this type of thud and vibration. Usually the mechanic just pumps the shaft full of grease to quite it down and that helps for a while. Have them check the sterring shaft for this condition as well as the ball joints. This condition is worse in trucks but it can be found in most GM cars as well over time.

Loud noise when put into drive


If it is one big clunk then it might just be the universal joint that connects the drive shaft to the rear end. It is very dangerous to drive a vehicle with bad U-joints. If they break the whole drive shaft falls out. If the front u joint breaks it can act like a pole vault for your vehicle.

Sounds like flat tire but not


Have your universal joints and CV joints checked. I had the same problem and the Jeep dealer had it on the lift 4 times before they found it.

Rattling noise from front near alternator


Hi.
I think the problem is the power take off for the front fan ,steering etc. Underneath the middle of the car you will see what looks like a small propshaft pointing towards the front with a doughnut shapped mounting bolted to each end. These rubber joints wear and rattle on tick over or low revs cost is about £40 for the 2 from Japarts
Takes about 2 hours to change.Hope this helps Good luck

Got an02 saturnl100 4dr sedan,too much road noise


Yes tires wearing out without correct rotations will cause the tires to wear out quickly, This applies to anycar not just L-series though. I would correct the tire noise before dealing with the wheel bearing because I would almost bet the bearing is ok and they are just hearing tire noise. I have seen a few bad wheel bearings on L cars, but nowhere near as many as the number of tires i have seen making noise. Get a couple of tires and drive it and see what you think. Oh BTW dealerships are not owned by the manufacturers they are privately owned and their employees are not considered employees of that dealerships manufacturer. The people at a dealership work for only a slightly larger company than your local garage, and usually a much smaller company than most national chain tire/repair shops.

Volvo XC70, Grinding Noise


sounds like c/v axles (front drive shafts) they will make a clicking sound normally when turning sharp and accell at the same time at slow speeds / look at the axle boots and look for grease on the inside of the front wheels leaking out the axle boots
