Question about Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

When driving, if I go into a right curve and exelerate i feel a strong vibration, but only if i am exelerating. If I am costing around the curve it's just fine. Please let me know what you think. Thanks Mike

Are you getting a humming or grinding noise with it as well? This may be a wheel bearing issue causing the vibration which will be worse under accleration.

    I've replaced both wheel bearings. Do you think it may be the axle (cv) joints on the drivers side?

    That may be possible but what is the condition of that LF tire?Is it chopped up on the inside?

    I could see the axle doing something like that if it can be verified that it is binding up. Is there any way to lift the truck completely off the ground and run it in 4wd turned all the way to the right just too see if the problem can be duplicated while not actually driving it. And while its up just double check that wheel bearing for possible noise or looseness?

    That definitely changes things a bit.Jack up the front end and support with jack stands on the engine cradle.If this has traction control that does not have a switch to turn offI unplug the abs harness at the wheel bearing this will shut down the abs and traction control. If you have stethoscope or long screwdriver try listening at the wheel bearings again. Turn the wheels to see if vibration can be duplicated. Many times I have run across a new wheel bearing being bad. Inspect the axle for boot damage and grease coming out. Sorry wasn't sure why I had truck on my brain.

    so you don't think it could be the cv joints in the axle?

  • Jonathan S

    Depending on the condition of the cv joint and possibly the mileage on vehicle. The axle could cause a vibration.

    I was thinking about this one for awhile. By chance was the vehicle in an accident on that side? The axle could cause a vibration.If the cv joint is bad you may be able to check by running tight circles in a parking lot.Typically if the joint is bad you will get a clicking or popping noise while turning sharp. Left or right depending on which axle may be bad.

Truck has 305 motor fuel injected idles fine when in drive barely exelerating it spits and sputers and sometimes dies but when i get into the exelerator a litle bit it doesnt do it


if it is an HEI distributor remove the cap and rotor there is a module under the rotor take out the two quarter inch screws and unplug it take it to your local parts store and have it checked that is the module that controls the injection rate,if it is not HEI then do an injector cleaning,also try running a tank full of high octane gas through it the injectors sound like they have gunk built up in them,hope this gives you a place to start
