    We did the things that you recommended and no help.

    But my friend did discover that there is a vibration even when at idle which I had not noticed.

Most of the load would be on your front wheels. Even if the tires are balanced a bad belt would still make a vibration. Since you have a full size spare, why not rotate the spare with a ground wheel and see if the vibration goes away? Then put everything back and go to the next side and try it again.

When you do remove the wheel ask the place that put on your tierod ends this. "How much end travel is suppose to be in the front hubs?" This is the amount of play back and forth in the front hub bearings. On one of my cars it was suppose to be the thickness of a playing card and mine were the thickness of penny. You can kind of determine the play by grabbing the hub and pulling on it. Make a note of it while changing tires.

    Take it to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. You may get the onboard computer to diagnose the problem even if the "Check Engine " light is not on. The vibration at idle and beyond would reduce the possiblity of Hubs and wheels causing your problem.



    You can try to spray a water mist around the gaskets on the Intake manifold and the Injectors. If you are careful, a light spray of choke cleaner will also work. When the engine is running you will notice a change in the RPM of the engine when you find a Vacuum leak.



    Before you test the gaskets, with the motor off, check your gascap to see if it is on tight. Then start the engine and see if the roughness went away. If it does not, have it scanned.

Hello, I see you may a lot of changes and replaced a lot of parts. We leased an Explorer the same Year as yours. In our case there was a slight noise as well as vibration. The problem was the Front Hub bearings, They were bad at 18000 miles.

There are a few things I want to suggest. The spinning of the wheels on the lift will not load the bearings. A Dyno table can get everything turning with a load on it. As your vehicle is a 4x4, most Dyno's were 2 wheelers. You would have to call to find one for a 4x4.

Next, if the new Hubs do not help, have a look at the rotors. They are also balanced. You can spin balance the Wheel and rotor as a unit with a floor motor. It's not the best way to Balance because tire rotation or even shifting the Wheel on the lugs will UNbalance it. But this method CAN pinpoint a problem if a Balanced tire does not spin true when bolted to the vehicle. You will know the Rotor is off-balance and which axle is causing the problem.

Would be interested to see a Post of what you found.

2000 Chrysler Cirrus vibrates really bad at speeds under 40 km/h. Vibration still there at higher speed but not as bad. Steering and alignment don't appear to be affected. Any ideas?


Check the ball joints and tie rod ends and Tire balance. Could have broken/slpped bet in a tire or whaeel migh have thrown a balance weight.

Roar in front end


I have the same thing. It started last summer when I had about 20,000 miles. I just took it into the dealer. They say it is the antenna and that they removed it and tested drove it and the noise went away. Mine starts around 35 mph. I don't know if they are pulling my leg and there is a bigger problem that the financially strapped GM won't fix. I also have a bad CV joint and unless it goes out within the next 500 miles, GM won't replace it.
