Question about 2001 Volvo S60

2 Answers

When my Volvo accelerates, there is a side to side shaking in the car, especially as it approaches 55-60mph; mostly in the front of the car although there may be some in the rear. Any ideas?

Have the wheels checked for defects and balance. While they are in there, inspect the axles for torn boots and other damage. Let me know what is found.

Shakes on the front right side at 50 miles especially if i hit the gas


Vibration, usually upon acceleration? Sounds like the passenger side axle may be (possibly)wearing as the clearances inside the axle wear out, creating excessive movement when under a load (acceleration). Usually a rapid vibration that increases as you speed up.

Front end shakes upon acceleration


when you accelerate the torque(twisting motion)is lifting the front of the car(hence wheelspin), taking the weight off the lower control arms(no weight = more movement)so when you coast, the full front end weight is on the front suspension = no shake....

The motor shakes in my 960 volvo sedan why could that be


A shaking engine usually is an indicator of an engine missfire. Secondary ignition components are the most common failure (Spark plugs, plug wires, etc..). Less likely, but still a consideration are the fuel system components such as the fuel injectors or filter. Further down the list with a vibration in gear at idle are bad engine mounts. If it worsens with engine load such as acceleration then it is likely the ignition system.
Good luck

Front end shake . especially when torque on front end


Check the motor mounts, they tend to go bad on this vehicle. If they are ok, you may have a inner cv joint that is binding.
