Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Front end vibration sounds/feels like tire rub but good clearance around both front tires. Increases with speed, not changed by braking or cornering, no pull to either side, not really felt in the steering wheel more than anywhere else. Car ''may have been in a little mud'' ( I love teenager drivers ) but tires/rims etc are free from large debris.

Weird vibration, unable to figure out


I would have the front wheel bearing adjustment checked first as if they are loose the rotor will be rubbing on the pads and the vibration will be wheel wobbling on the loose bearings Unless you replaced the bearings with new ones then they will fail especially if the adjustment was too tight and too much grease was used.

Shakes on the front right side at 50 miles especially if i hit the gas


Vibration, usually upon acceleration? Sounds like the passenger side axle may be (possibly)wearing as the clearances inside the axle wear out, creating excessive movement when under a load (acceleration). Usually a rapid vibration that increases as you speed up.

Front end vibrates between 80-100km/h. am sure its not the brakes as it does not happen when i brake .


Good Morning This is usually a broken belt in one of your front tires. sometimes you can physically look and feel your tire and see where the belt is broke because it will be like a small lump on tread surface. If you have hit a bad pothole or bump in the road will cause this, or its possible to have lost a wheel weight and an out of balance tire will also cause vibration in the front end. I am assuming that below and above this speed you dont notice any vibration and if so i would go to your tire guy and have him look at the tires and check for a broken belt and or balance the tires if no signs of tire damage. Hope this helps you Good Luck and God Bless

The car has a serious front end/steering wheel vibrations when accelerating above 55 mph. At lower speeds, the car runs fine. Thanks


Check to make sure there isn't any dirt, mud or snow build up inside your rims as this will throw them out of balance. If there is clean it out. If the problem is still there or none of that is in the rims feel around the tires, make sure they feel the same all the way around. Any bulges or cupping(uneven tread) and I would recommend replacing the tires. If still every thing is good take them to a repair shop and have them put on a balancing machine. They probably just need to be rebalanced.

I have 1998 Mercury Sable DOC. I have some vibrating in the front end, I have had bearings, ball joints, brake pads, rotors, calipers, tie rod ends replaced and the vehicle still shakes. I notice it more...


OK, I would change the tires if I had vibrating in the front end after all of that work.

Have the wheels/tires spin balanced in the front and have the tire tech check for out of roundness as it spins on the electronic balancer.

I wouldn't be surprised if the tires were out of round.

I usually recommend Goodyear or Michelin tires with an A traction and A or B Temperature rating and a long treadlife warranty (60,000 mi. or above) to get a rock solid feel in the front end at all speeds.

I just solved such a problem on my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine which had used Goodyear Integrity tires and replaced them with new Goodyear Assurance Tires which solved a front end and general body vibration at highway speeds.

Good luck on getting new tires for your vehicle, and hope the shakiness goes away!

I have an 04 Honda Odyssey. I feel a mild


If you have vibration in your steering wheel, I would have your CV joints checked out or it might be your front wheel bearings. The vibration coming from those two problems would get a little more intense as your speed increases. Are your tires in good shape? Did it vibrate before you got your brakes done?

check balance of tires; if ok, have rotors refinished or replaced; most likely warped rotors if you can feel it in the brake pedal when braking

The right front wheel seems to be making a rubbing sound and I can feel a vibration on the floor board? What could be the problem?


First check the tire, rub your hands over it and if the tread is bumpy, get a new tire. It seems like you may be describing a wheel bearing, though. Those are hard to diagnose without actually driving the car or having it on a lift with the wheels spinning. If you're hearing a wuhwuhwuhwuh sound that gets faster and the speed of the vehicle increases, it's probably a bearing.

Noise and vibration above 50 mph


Sounds like front differential or front drive axle issues. Check the front differential gear oil then take er' to the dealership before you end up spending a bunch of $. Most people change their oil frequently in the engine but forget about flushing the transmission fluid and changing oil in the front and rear differentials. I have three Ford 4X4s. Two which really get used hard. The 93 has 311K miles and still runs excellent. Trans and differentials get a fluid change every 25K miles and moble one synthetic engine oil changes every 5k miles.
