Hi,

Yes it is possible. The drivetrain spans from the transmission down to the differential. Anything out of the ordinary could and would cause shaking. First to be checked are the universal joints, then the U-joint straps (there would be several), mounting brackets, pinion yoke and its support. Normally, everything should be tight with nothing that can be budge or moved when you yank at them.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

when does the car shake? (speed and driving conditions) and have you had an alignment done since the tie rod ends were replaced? if not, that could also cause a shake. if it shakes while pressing the brake pedal, that is an all together different issue.

Have a wheel alignment and suspension check . Check brake pads thickness and disc rotor condition. Shaking at speed indicates wheel alignment and worn tie rod ball joints and/ suspension badly worn

a good thing to check would be your inner and outer tie rod ends. if they are going bad they will cause a lot of shaking in the car and will also cause the front end to be out of a lined which will make your tires wear faster and uneven

The fan quit working. Can that be a fuse problem? Also the car vibrates at slow speed (around 30-35 mph) and shakes at higher speeds (+60). We had new tie rods and rack & pinion as we were told we...


It could be a fuse problem or it could be a defective fan motor.

After you had new tie rods and rack and pinion did you get a complete alignment on the car? Also you may want to check all 4 tires to see if they are balanced correctly.

2001 Chevy Tracker shakes on and off at higher rates of speed on thruway.


Front end need to be checked. checked shocks and stabilizer links.
check damper shock.
Check the tie rods. They had come loose, causing the wheels have excessive play and vibrate. Be aware that they will not balance tires or give a front end alignment if the tie rods are the culprit. They must be replaced first, otherwise the alignment will only hold until the first time you turn the wheel...which could be 5 seconds after you get in the car. Good luck.

1995 Ford Crown Victoria - shakes/vibrates @ highway speeds.


Alignment has alot to do with the tires not shimmying.. Like zero toe setting. Loose componants like tie rod ends and the idler ar worn. You can ck for excess front end play by holding the front and back of the wheel and pushing and pulling on it, like rocking it. OR have someone rock the steering while you watch where the play is from underneath. By rocking I mean turn the steering wheel back and forth. Look at all th joints and pivot points for excess play, which is, movement not immediate to the rest of the steering system. Tire balance is very important. Wheel hop is a sign of a bad tire and it overtaxes the shock absorber. Shocks don't cause shimmy because they are a vertical movement controlA shimmy is lateral or side to side.Wheel balance weights must be spit. If a 2 oz. weight is needed to balance the tire, Oe once should be on the inside of the wheel and one ounce on the outside directly across from each outher.. Loose wheel brgs will cause shimmy, but they would not last long. Caster setting on the wheel alignment will also cause shimmy. Like on a shopping car. too much caster causes the wheel to start fluttering and is very hard on other componants. This may be why you have worn tie rod ends and a bad pitman arm. Worn control arm bushings and ball joints directly affect titre wear and can only be feltwhen the front end hits a dip and detected by side wear on the tire edges. Summary: replace the tie rod end and have the car aligned. Good Luck, -Ned_ sorry about the book
