I have a vibration andnoise that come from the front passenger side. I gets louder when I turn left but quiets when I turn right....any suggestions?


Sounds like a ball joint, or steering linkage. Jack up the front end so the wheels DO NOT TOUCH the ground and put safety blocks under axle

grabs the wheel with your hands at top and bottom, try to jiggle the wheel, not turn, try to lift, shake up + down. If there is shaking, then it's a balljoint.

If no shake, then you'll simply need a wheel alignment

94 eagle summit vibrates left to right at speeds in excess of 50mph. the steering wheel does NOT shake with the vibration. It only vibrates after driving for 40mins+.. It comes and goes, not constant. ANY...


Left to right wandering that starts after 40+ minutes means that the effect happens once something gets hot.

I'd suspect first tires or suspension (tie rods or ball joints). Could be a jamming inner CV joint, but this generally results in steering wheel shake too.

Might also be an engine misfire. Check wires, plugs and injectors.

Could also be fuel starvation on a low gas tank. Check the evaporative system.

Cannot get key to turn in jeep. Have already driven it numerous times today, suddenly can't move steering wheel or gear shift and key will not turn. Help!


Try turning the steering wheel (hard) right and left while turning the key. Steering lock , and ignition lock work in conjunction with each other.

2000 f350 super duty 7.3 drw steering seems to lock up on hard right and left turns. wheel shakes untill i stop and restart. i can sometimes stop the shaking if i quickly turn right and left while driving....


The control valves from the power steering unit lock in position at extreme angles. Either the fluid is dirty - replace it - or the unit is worn out - valves can be replaced separately and the unit refurbished. Or just buy a new unit.

Steeing wheel vibrates when i turn to the left from a stop


Does it feel like it's trying to pull back straight? if so, I would say you have a seized strut bearing on the right side.

Car shakes.


If the vehicle is FWD then you may have a CV outter joint going out and/or possibly a wheel bearing failure. I would have this checked out by a professional shop AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. It also could be causing the power steering alert to come on because it is detecting the vibration in the wheel arm for the steering. Good Luck, RAC
