If it's not the tires check the steady bearing on the driveshaft. Very common and expensive problem on Equinox.

Check condition of front tire, also the balance of the fronts 65 is a common speed for tire vibration. do not overlook steering play(tie rods, ball joints) also bent wheel. any noise? could have wheel bearing issue. lots of places, like vip, pepboys, etc. will check front end for free hopeing to sell you a part. not bad deal because you do need "something" even if it is tires balanced.

    Equinox is bad for steady bearing going on driveshaft. Causes vibation.

Car jerks at 65 miles per hour


could be a clogged fuel filter, if you have not, you should replace it anyway. then if still bad check flow of fuel pump. might be getting old and slow. if you have a lot of miles might need a tune up. a tune up in general about once a year is recommended anyway.

I have a vibration at 70 miles per hour


if the wheel alignment is faulty ( castor wobble ) at 70 mph there is no way that you can describe it as a vibration as it virtually rip the steering wheel out of your hands. If it is a torque converter problem then at around 3850-4025 rpm stationary there will be a vibration of the vehicle and engine The sort of vibration that you are experiencing at 70 mph will come from a drive line problem. If rear wheel drive then it could be faulty "U" joints, worn slip joint or failed rear engine mount
If front wheel drive it may be cv joints or bent drive shafts,wheel bearings or brake callipers not moving freely on the mounting bolts.

My 2002 2 wheel has vibration in front end whan i go 55-60 miles per hour. alot of shake in the steering wheel also. what could be the culprit


Hi Mikey. Take the vehicle for wheel balancing and alignment. Get the technician at the centre to inspect the steering and suspension linkages while he's doing the alignment, but I think wheel balancing will sort out your problem. Regards John

Vibration when going about 40 to 50 miles per hour feels like whole underneath is vibrating


IF you have rear wheel drive then check the u-joints for wear/loose. Check slip joint for wear . Check rear engine mount is in good condition. Check wheel balancing

When excelerate to 70 mph my steering wheel vibrates. What should I do?


This is very common. It can either be your tires need to be balanced. Or your car needs to be aligned at an alignment center. One or the other should stop the vibration.

Steering wheel vibrates when applying brakes. Have checked brake linings, pads and anti-lock. Have two Equinox 2005 and 2007. Put new tires on 2007. Still have the problem. Same problem with both...


Could be a warped brake rotor. Have the rotors checked for wear and if they are within tolerance, have them resurfaced.
If they are beyond wear tolerance, replace the brake rotors.
You said you replaced the tires. Did you have all the wheels balanced?? Might want to check this also.

Vibrating


1. The wheels are not balanced. (Go for wheel balancing and alignment)

2. Check your brake system (pads etc)

Good luck.

It could be worn starting parts, Not ballanced wheel, and broken or worn struts. Start with the wheel getting ballance and go from there if there was no problems before your got the new tires put on.
