3 Answers

1975 jeep. When driving down the road jeep will shake violantly. Only on occassion and stops after pulling over for a few minutes. Also the passenger front and back side floor gets full of water. I was told it is the air condition hose that gets plugged up. We've cleared it but it has only gotten worse.

Shake is called "death wobble". The solution is generally found by going over every component of the front suspension carefully,(including all bushings) eliminating all play. Important items to check are ball joints and track bar ends and mount tabs as well as steering box attachment to chassis. Sometimes the problem can be caused by something simple such as improper wheel torque or not using "star" pattern when replacing a wheel. One item often blamed for this is the steering stabilizer (sideways shock on steering linkage) Though wobble will often cause the stabilizer to fail, it will not cause the problem, it's failure is the result of the problem, therefore replacing it will not give any long term relief. In extreme cases the alignment caster angle can be placed more positive, but front pinion angle needs to be kept from exceeding specification and becomes a limiting factor.
Wet rear floor can be caused by any number of body leaks. If a/c vent tube is plugged, unless you have rear air, the front footwell would be wetter than the rear Check the floor pan underneath for rust holes. Sometimes the vent tube needs to be cleared multiple times depending on how much junk is inside the heater box.
good luck

Hi,
Looks like you have a two part problem.
For the vehicle shaking, I would recommend having the front shock absorbers checked. The jeep might also require front end alignment after all that activity.
For the water problem in consideration of all water sources, I would have to ask if the water is due to the vehicle itself, or after a rain? AC condensation could be the source as you mentioned. A hole access in the firewall or floorboard on a rainy day is another thing.
Determine also, that the water isn't antifreeze... this would indicate a heater core problem.
Good luck on your investigation... hope this helps!

Jeep front end shakes badly when driving down the highway at speeds of 45 miles an hour to 55 miles an hour. The whole front end, tires shift from side to side, almost coming out from under the front end...


Bent rods....Okay...first thing...did you hit anything or or run over anything? Second, did you go off-roading....

It could be a few things....some easy and some expensive...but need to know what you have done with the Jeep first.

My jeep frount end shakes when i hit a pothole what makes it do that


Check your steering stability bar I had the same problem and it turned out that I had bent that bar.

The death wobble is basically when you are driving your lifted jeep down the road and the front end starts to shake violently. It can happen at virtually any speed, though mostly above 40 mph or so, and is a frightening experience, especially for those witnessing it for the first time. Now it doesn’t throw you off the road or anything … the front end just shakes. And the only way to stop it is to slow down and pull over. So it wasn’t that hard to get used to at first. But as it happened more and more, it seemed to get more and more out of control.

Hope help (remember comment and rated this).

My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Will die going down the road. Sometimes it starts back up without me touching the key.other times I have to wait a few minutes before it will crank again.Any suggestions? Thank...


I've got to be reading this incorrectly...You are driving, the engine turns off...you pull off the road? And then without touching the key the engine re-starts, but you haven't touched the key? Or, sometimes you need to sit there for a few minutes and then turn the key to start it?

1975 cj5 jeep starts to shake badly at about 40 mph.


I had the exact same same issue with my 03 sahara at the exact same speed and it was a huge build up of dirt in the rims (live on gravel road)that may be the issue or you may have a badly balanced tire or a bad front end part(s) ball joint tie rod etc......
hope this helps!

1999 jeep grand cherokee transmission


This is called limp mode chrysler did this to protect the transmission without leaving the owner stranded by the road,a few things will cause this mainly putting the wrong fluid in the transmission,they use only atf+4,or the govenor pressure sensor is acting up which should cause a check engine light to come on,or the transmission just needs a fluid and filter change,should be done every 2yrs or 36k miles,due the fluid and filter change about 40.00 but if you have the wrong fluid then the whole system needs to be flushed and refilled-transmission-torque convertor,radiator and cooler if equipped and all lines.

Death wobble


when they did the alignment did they notice anything broke or missing? most shops will not do alignment unless everything looks brand new. these vehicles along with the cherokee and grand cherokee are notorous for the sway bar end links breaking up towards the top of the link. check that and grad both driveshaft and push up and down and pull side to side on them if there is movement then change the u-joints. when alignment was done did they do 2 or 4 wheel alignment? rear mount could be broke also, depends on what set-up you have and how hard the person before you was on the jeep. they are alot more things this could be also? are the tires wearing different? check all 4 for signs, inside worn more then outside, cupping, feathering etc. just lay your hand flat and run it across the tire should go pretty smooth. this could also be a steering problem, you emntioned that it does not do it all the time? start checking these things if you haven't already and let me know i would love to help im a jeep fan also i own two of them. good luck and let me know
