How do you know if a bad alternator is the cause of steering wheel shaking in a 2005 Chrysler Pacigica with only 149k miles?


Very unlikely a bad alternator is going to cause a steering wheel shake even if the alternator is seriously out of balance. In that case a high frequency vibration will run through almost the entire car and the alternator will soon self-destruct.

There are a few reasons why a steering wheel might shake and mostly these relate to the integrity of the front wheels and tyres, the roundness, the radial and axial run-out, the balance and the compatibility with each other and the vehicle. Problems with the wheels and tyres can further be aggravated by steering/suspension wear or misalignment, worn shock absorbers and even binding brakes or warped brake discs.

The rear wheels and tyres and suspension and brakes are also important for a smooth ride and could conceivably cause a steering wheel shake, though a different sort of shake to that caused by the fronts. In this case the vibration is often felt mostly through the seat of the pants and from the seat back.

I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

Hi my nissan terranos steering shakes at 60 mph at 70 mph it doesnt at 50 mph it doesnt shake,


Get the front wheels re-balanced, a balance weight may have fallen off or been knocked off, or perhaps just due to tyre wear.
Due to harmonic frequencies, it is possible to get the vibration only at certain speeds.

My van starts to shake very badly when i go over 50 mph


Make sure the wheels are properly balanced and secure. Check all steering components and bushings for excessive play. Make sure steering box is secure on frame. If everything is tight, you can have alignment moved slightly more positive (caster only) and that too should help.
Wheel bearing hubs can also cause shake in certain cases and a binding brake caliper can as well (one wheel will be really hot after driving when compared with others) If shake is in body and not front end (you did not say) check driveshaft joints for play.

When the van is driven my front end is making a knocking noise my front driver side wheel shakes and the steering wheel shakes


Front wheel drive cars have CV joints in the axles to permit the wheel to turn for steering. The CV joint is basically a universal joint on steroids. When they ware out it can cause this type of condition.

My steering wheel shakes a lot when i go past 65 mph...what could the problem be and what do i need to do to fix it?


you need to inspect your front tyres for damages, you can start by changing front tyres with back, and test drive, if tyres look ok then have tyres balanced.
