Question about 2000 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I have a slight steering vibration while breaking at high speed and a slight rackle when going on rough roads. My mechanic changed both rack ends and steering ends. However the problem is still there, he said is comming straight from the rack. Is this so ?... is it something i should be concerned about?.. will the car be able to get aligned properly?

Vibration on 2004 Cadillac Deville


If a hub bearing was bad, it almost always would make noise, more so when changing lanes at higher speed. Outer CV joints make a loud low pitched rattle when turning (corners). Inner CV joints raise hell at high speed- bad shake! Sway links affect cornering and clunk when hitting rough patches of road surface.
Is the vibration worse at 65 than at 50? If so, you are dealing with a wheel balance situation. Find an old time front end shop that will check the balance on the vehicle. You will have to turn off the traction control to do this or use an on-the-car wheel balancer.
If you feel it at some low speeds at it comes back at other higher speeds, then you are dealing with tire roundness. Possible more than 1. More common than we would like.

I own a 2001 RX300 and am noticing a bit of free play in the steering wheel when wheels are straight and the vehicle is moving. Also feel a vibration when driving around 70mph. The tires are ok and...


It sounds like a worn steering rack bush in the steering rack,as this explains the play youve mentioned,the vibration is caused by the wheels moving very slightly through the play in the rack bush,theres 1 letf and 1 right side bush in the ends of the steering rack that would need checking for play or movement

Very bad vibration when braking and between 60-65 mph


you really need to get this into a steering specialist.vague,wandering steering with a click is a sure sign of worn components,the bad vibration is consistent with this.I had a callout to a vehicle 2 weeks ago with similar fault,it failed on the road and could have killed driver or another .there are a number of joints in this area that contribute to this sympton,they all need correct inspection.steering rack or box,rack ends,tie rod ends,balljoints,wishbone/arm bushes,steering universals etc.

sounds like a wheel bearing. typically when you take weight off bad bearing noise goes away. to replace bearing you will need a press to get it off and on

I have front end vibration that is not caused by alignment. New tires on all four wheels but still have alot of front end vibration. Car is a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon.


just checked this out a while ago:



Wheel Hub Assemblies: Systems and Diagnosis of Worn Hub Assemblies & Bearings
Front wheel hub assemblies and bearings control the position of, and reduce the resistance of, vehicle wheels in contact with the pavement. When they fail, front wheels may not be kept in position and vibration and noise usually develop. Symptoms that normally develop as a result of these worn parts include:
  • A humming, rumbling or growling noise which increases with acceleration or as the vehicles turns
  • Vibration felt in the steering wheel, which changes with vehicle speed or as the vehicle turns
  • Looseness or excessive play in the steering wheel (especially while driving over rough road surfaces)
  • A loud, constant grinding noise when driving the vehicle (heard in the most severe cases of a wheel bearing failure)
  • Pulling to one side when braking.
  • Roughness - with the vehicle of the ground, roughness or vibration when rotating the wheel
  • Looseness - with the vehicle off the ground, looseness when wiggling the wheel back and forth (Looseness may also indicate a worn ball joint)
  • Excessive brake pedal play can also indicate sloppy or excessively loose wheel bearings
  • ABS failure in the system may be related to failure of the ABS sensor in the hub assembly or the internal sensor in the wheel bearing

Squeak and slight vibration heard and felt in steering column at low speeds (Parking lots, etc)


Get a friend to turn wheel back and forth in the garage, get on the ground and use your hands to feel where the noise is coming from. Metal gives off a significant amount of vibrations with noise. Should be easy to tell where it's coming from. Could be your rack and pinion, however I would be much more willing to consider ball joints. Hard to tell without getting "down and dirty" on the floor under the vehicle feeling for the noise.

Could be your steering gearbox, tierod end, rack and pinion piston, low power steering fluid, bad serp belt, ball joints, front struts/mounting hardware.

Also test steering with the entire vehicle on the floor and with the front end off the ground lifted by a few floor jacks lifting on the frame of the vehicle.

Ball joints especially on Ford vehicles tend to squeak after a while (mostly since they are the sealed type) even if they pass a safety inspection.
