    your brake calipers may be sticking and riding the disk causing the caliper piston to wobble in the caliper causing the vibration.

2003 Ford Mustang vibration at 65mph+


I'd start by having the tires balanced and remounted. Rotating them wouldn't hurt either. Start there.

2003 SATURN VUE SERIVE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS BLINKING ON AND OFF RAN THE OBDII READER AND CODE P0304 CYLINDER MISFIRE CAME UP I CHANGE SPARK PLUGS AND BOOTS BUT CAR STILL DRIVES ROUGH SHAKES AND WHEN PARKED...


The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Intermittent vibration coming from engine while a/c running


Change plug wires. Most often, plug wires will only short out when they are under load, so you don't notice anything until your motor is doing a little extra work.

Feels like I'm running over rumble strips. Happens intermittently


When was the last time your wheels where spin balanced? Have the tires checked for wheel balance its probably out of balance. It will cause the tires to cup and it will make flat spots on the tires. To check rubb your hand over tire make sure tires don't have cupping on the outside tread and or flat spots through out the tire. Cupping - one tread is slightly higher than the rest.
Flat spots- center of tire will be flat or it could be all over the tire.

AC Compressor


try having someone kill the a/c while you check for the noise. if it stops then check further into the compressor where you said you thought it was coming from. It could be the bearings in the compressor clutch going out.
