Question about Toyota Solara

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Toyota Solara with 27,000 miles on it. I have been having a steering wheel vibration problem at 65 mph. The vibration is so bad that I have to pull over and stop the car completely. If I put my foot on the brakes, I can feel the vibration in the brake pedal. If I come to a complete stop, I can start driving again and the steering wheel vibration problem doesn?t occur again. The vibration doesn?t start if I drive over a bump in the road it start even when driving on a smooth road. The vibration problem started after I had the brake?s master cylinder and boosters replaced because I was having a problem with noisy brakes and the pedal would relaxed and go to the floor at times. Trying to resolve the vibration problem I replaced an almost new set of tires and had the tires balanced at Goodyear and at the Toyota dealer. I went to another repair shop and they replaced the front rotors and brake pads. After they test drove the car, the wheels were smoking so they replaced the front calipers and brake line hoses. After that the vibration was not as bad as it was previously, but there is still some vibration at 65 mph, and it only stops if I bring the car to a complete stop before taking off again. Usually when I start driving again the steering wheel vibration doesn?t start again. I would think if it was the rotors, that the vibration would be all the time and not just intermittent?

Fix for cadillac deville 2000-2003 vibration between 65-70 mph

Have your Mechanic check the steering tie rod bushings, and linkage. Sometimes it's just an adjustment to the steering box play(located at the end of the steering wheel shaft), - easy to fix.

Vibration at 70 MPH.

Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.

Vibration in the steering wheel on a 4wd truck

I just had the same issue with a 1999 2500HD and the vibration got worse above 50 mph. Problem was resolved with a new driveshaft. Old one (aluminum) was badly out of true and the problem didn't really occur until I had the U joints changed - then bent driveshaft vibration was noticeable. New driveshaft resolved issue.

Car shaking and vibrating at 55 mph. and does it again at 65-70.

Since your BMW 540 series is a rear wheel drive car, a common cause of that sort of vibration is often the U joints on your drive shaft. The vibration often only shows up and certain speeds.

It isn't a particularly expensive repair, but is something to have checked out!

Vibrating proplem

Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.
