Get under the vehicle (use ramps) and check all linkages for movement pull push on the anti roll bar links, pull push on steering rack and pinion and linkages, any excessive movement, jack each wheel at a time, using a bar check the lower wishbone joints for movement, get the bar in the gap between the wishbone and lower part of the shock. and pull down, if any movement in ball joint up and down replace. while wheel on vehicle check for movement in bearing you will feel a tiny amount not much but pull and push on wheel with opposite hands on 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock and do the same at 9 and 3. now with both wheels off the ground but with the tyres still on, have some one holed one wheel and push pull on wheels each side there should be even movement between both wheels, if everything is fine with the the steering linkages and this dose not feel or sound right then this could be the problem also to add if the inside and out side of the tyres are wearing then the tyre pressure is wrong and needs adjusting to the right tyre pressure .

SOURCE: Tire wear

google TSB 03-13-5 (addresses concerns over excessive inner-tire wear on wheels mounted in the rear.), then contact your dealer again.

SOURCE: Mechanic says the front inner tie rods need replacement

They do not wear out that fast, 80,000 miles is a typical replacement point in your Taurus., get a 2nd opinion, wobble can also be caused by bad tires, i.e. a separated tire cord inside the tire. rotated the tires and see if it helps the problem, also an alignment is a good idea.

Could be tie rods,bearings, cv joint. or just need fluid in the power steering. I have even had a brake stick just enough to cause a vibration.

try rotating your tires from front to back, so as to eliminate the possibility of a broken belt in a tire. See if your shaking moves. Hope this helps.

I have a 99 chevy Tahoe that I bought three years ago it has 20" wheels and tires I recently replace all new tires, front shocks,inner tie rod ends, brakes and front rotors it has a death wobble in the...

There are a number of things that could cause a front end vibration, and while it may seem to be coming from the left front, it may not necessarily be so. That said, however, lets list them from the left front first.

1. I am assuming this is a 2WD vehicle, as 20 inch rims on a 4x4 are odd to say the least. Therefore, it is possible that the front bearings were not adjusted properly when installing the new front rotor. Too loose or too tight could bring on the issue. Jack the left front corner up and try to shake the wheel side-to-side and up-and-down. If it only shakes side-to-side, it could be the outer tie rod end. If it only shakes up and down, check the upper and lower ball joints. If ot goes both ways, it's probably the bearings. Chances are if you felt the vibration, readjustment won't be enough. You'll probably have to have the bearings replaced.

2. Be sure that the wheel is fastened properly to the hub. If it has gotten wedged or skewed, it could cause issues (not likely).

3. Check the idler arm for excessive wear. When this wears out, the tires will constantly track in (or out) depending on alignment, then "jump" back to straight, causing a shake in the steering.

P0404 may be the valve sticking or not operating correctly. I hope you bought at least a AC DELCO valve, all others are not good enough. As for the car shaking @ 70 maybe they did not balance the tires good enough, have them drive it and recommend what to do, maybe you have a bad tire.

Steering wheel trembling when driving at speed 60 to 80 km per hour.

Hello. Welcome to FixYa.

Steering wheel tremble, or shaking, can usually be attributed to the fornt tires being out of balance, or, the tires themselves may be out of round, or, a rim could be bent.

I would suggest that you take the vehicle to a tire shop, and get the front tires spun-balanced. During that procedure, the tech will see if the balance is incorrect, the rim is bent, or if the tire is out of round.

Even if you have 'new' tires, an internal issue inside the tire could be the culprit.

Your best course of action is to get it to a tire shop, and get the above items checked out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

Frontend shakes when braking, sometimes - have

The actual disc rotors have warped with heat (eg, driving with foot lightly on brake pedal). Easy fix, take it to a brake shop and get them to true the rotors. In New Zealand, we have guys that come to you to do it but essentially, they use a lathe and trim disc provided it doesn't go below manufacturers specs for thickness.

2002 ford taurus shakes

You need to have the front end inspected for damaged steering components. Check your Tie Rod ends, A frame bushings and ball joints to make sure there isn't excessive wear or lose connections. If all of that is in good working order Drive down the road with a friend in the next lane over and have them look to see if either wheel in bouncing. If either wheel is bouncing you need to replace the struts. they are replaced in pairs, both sides. The front end will need to be aligned after you do this.

Shakes and vibration

i had the alignment done about six months ago at the dealership. Would they have been able to align the car if something was bad? Not sure how they deemed the new tires bad, but they said they moved the tires from left to right and front to back and could control the shimmy and shake. this has went on for about a year. I dont believe the new tires the first time were bad, i believe the rim was bent. I dont know what to do. These tires have about 10000 miles on them, have been balanced twice, a rim was replaced due to them saying it was bent, but yet, the vibration starts at about 55 and gets worse as you gain speed. Can even feel it in the passenger seat in the front as well. Steering wheel shakes. You can actually see your hand shake while you are driving it, but then at times, it seems to go away and start again. Thanks for any suggestions.
