Depending on the vibration the first thing you should do is check your tires. Not just the air pressure but the tread, run your hands across the tires and make sure you don't feel any steel coming thru or bulges from the belts seperating. If everything is o-kay tire wise check your u-joints. A u-joint starting to go bad will cause this also. One of these is most likely the cause of your vibration. These are things often overlooked. Good Luck! If you find nothing in this leave a comment with any additional info you can. Then we'll go on from there at least we will know what is not the problem.

2005 Deville, when I'm braking of the highway my tires vibrate. Why is that?


The "tire" vibration is usually felt only in the front. This is caused by worn or warped brake rotors. The only correction to have the brakes serviced. Replacement of the pads and resurfacing or replacement of the rotors should correct the vibration.

HI MY 2006 S AWD MURANO HAS STARTED THIS IRRITATING VIBRATION..CAUSES EVERYTHING FROM THE SEATS AND THE MIRRORS TO VIBRATE. I HAVE CHECKED BALANCING, TIRE ROTATION AND ALIGNMENT..BUT PROBLEM PERSIST. DO...


Hm. I had an irritating vibration at highway speed with tires that came with my car. I had the balance checked and it was determined that there was an out of round tire. I replaced the tires, had them spin balanced, and the rims were perfect. After that, the vibration at highway speed went away.

Tires are the most common problem for vibration at various speeds.

Where did you buy your tires or have them spin balanced?

Vibration


your highway acceleration problem could be a coil problem. Not sure if that year of chev has coil packs or not but experienced same thing with ford 5.4L. went through 3 coil packs and did the same thing each time before biting the dust. Transmission seems to be sticking on the 1to2 upshift and could be a sticking solenoid in the valve body of the tranny. If the shifting problem persists then the tranny deffinately has to be rebuilt. It's made it quite far if tha is the original tranny, you cant expect too much life out of it if it has been worked hard. I highly doubt a fluid change would help at all. Or if you want, you can buy a can of new truck from GM for about 25 to 35 thousand bucks! Typically works great!

Vibration in 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 (YES, this is a double post)


Could be u-joints. My wife's Pathfinder developed a vibration at highway speeds. A little research revealed the front driveshaft u-joints bearings would begin to fail causing some play. Took it in to have them inspected and sure enough- the little needle bearings were grinding down to dust. Replaced with greesable units and vibration is gone.
Certainly worth checking out.
