Question about 2004 Jeep Wrangler

2 Answers

Jeep front end shakes badly when driving down the highway at speeds of 45 miles an hour to 55 miles an hour. The whole front end, tires shift from side to side, almost coming out from under the front end of the vehicle. It is almost impossible to hold it in the road. the jeep place told me to replace the tires and it would stop it from shaking, but I changed the tires and it has only gotten worse. Help, I'm afraid to drive it. The jeep place has no solutions.

Bent rods....Okay...first thing...did you hit anything or or run over anything? Second, did you go off-roading....

It could be a few things....some easy and some expensive...but need to know what you have done with the Jeep first.

My 2006 chevy cobalt shakes while driving from speeds of 45 to 70 miles an hour what could be the problem?


That's when the front end needs to be checked, could be,
tires out of balance
a steel belt separated in one of the tires
a worn front end component like:
a worn cv joint
a bad upper or lower ball joint
tie-rod end, etc.

Jeep 1993 grand cherokee shakes when I excel over


Shaking like that is generally associated with most commonly, unbalanced tires. You also should have the driveshaft universals checked for excess play. Either can give you a shake at certain speeds.

Hi, I have a 2001 Buick. We just replaced the front tires. Shortly after that we noticed the car vibrates at around 45 to MPH, after we get past this mph the vibration stops. It is not worse when we turn...


Let me see know at 45 miles per hour a vehicle usually shifts gears into the highest gear so could it be the torque converter hanging up and not shifting quick enough or maybe its the U joints. Have the transmission fluid checked for proper level and color.
Here's a small test for you when your accelerating up to 55 miles per hour try letting off the pedal at 44 miles per hour and then reaccelerating up to the 55 mph and tell me if it`s smoother if it is then chances are that it`s hang up on third gear. There's also a electric sensor located on transmission that assist shifting it`s usually controlled by the engine timing.
One more thing did the repair man check to see if the tires where directional tires if there not put on right it could cause vibration and early wear out .Hope i helped you.

Vehicle hakes when driving 45 to 50 miles per hour


Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.

Front end problems


You seem to have more than one problem, first of all the balding tire you have a negative camber problem that can be adjusted by getting a wheel alignment done. The shaking problem while applying brake could mean that you have bad/warped front rotors. It can also mean bad Tie rods. Lastly it can mean that the front tires needs to be high speed balanced. Good Luck

Shakes side2side under acceleration at 38-48 mpn only


Talked to Buick/GMC mechanic at the dealership claiming everyone was giving me different answers/things to replace. He said undoubtedly it was cv joint/half shaft. Changed driver's side, that fixed it. Another give away was it wasn't as bad when car was cold, but got worse as it drove a few minutes, i.e. everything got hot, expanded and therefore was looser.

The main clue was it wasn't RPM specific, bearings were okay and I didn't feel it in steering wheel so much as the whole car in a given RPM range despite gear (not the engine or front end of tranny, i.e. torque converter. Rotating tires had no effect.
