You need to get the tires checked out.You could just need a balance on them.As far as the noise.It is hard to tell you what to look for without actually hearing the noise.Does it sound like it is outside the vehicle,front,rear,tires,does it change at different speeds,does it do it all the time,warm cold?These are the things you have to find out.Hope this helps.Good luck.

    I just had front rotors put on it about two months ago and noticed thats when the shaking and noise started. The noise is more towards the fronts and goes faster as the speed exceeds and it does it all the time, but mostly when the speedometer is passed 50mph. Thanks.

I have a 2005 chevy cobalt that is making a humming noise after 20 mph. I can also feel a vibration in the gas petal. "noise" increases with speed. Higher milage and just had struts replaced about 150


squeakey69 is right it sounds like you have a wheel bearing problem cobalts are notorious for wheel bearings going bad i would go ahead and change both front bearings because if one is going bad the other usually isnt far behind hope this helps.

Chevy cobalt noise knocking in front end when you turn the steering wheel from left to right. Also knocking noise over bumps.


Hello and welcome. this noise is normally caused by a noisey steering I-shaft. there is a steering shaft that goes in between the steering column and the steering gear. this shaft has a slip joint that becomes noisey. all you need to do is lube the i-shaft with some special lube and you will be good to go

Whenever I go above 60 mph on the highway my steering wheel shakes or vibrates. This has happened before and I had to get my rotors turned. Could it be that I need new rotors? If so, what's the best brand...


Rotors will only cause a shake when braking. Your problem is more than likely out of balance tires.

The best brake components are usually the ones that cost the most.

My 2006 Chevy Cobalt steering wheel has locked and i dont know how to unlock it. I can't even turn the key when i put it in the ignition


sounds like your steering column lock is binding you need to slightly turn the steering one way or the other while turning the key at the same time. this happens if the steering wheel is turned after removing the key. or when parked against a curb.
