Re: tyrod broke on 2000 cadillac deville
The tierod makes the car steer. and it will cause these symptoms it will come off and wreck you also, there are other things that could do this also all just as dangerous. you need to drive it slowly to get it fixed. you can look at the parts while a friend wiggles the steering wheel back and forth to see what is loose it will have a lot of play in it.

This is an indication of a strut issue. The shocks dampen the spring in the strut assembly. IF you have loose fastening components or bushings or a bad shock in the strut you can get a violent shudder when you apply brakes on a down hill direction.
Unbalanced wheels shake a vehicle like that. It's hard to understand your earlier statement. It sounded like after you weren't moving anymore that it still shook. I am figuring that isn't what you meant.
No check engine light on? If it jumps rapidly, then it can only be due to the transmission changing gears, or slipping clutches. Either way, there should be a fault code set in the PCM. You need to get it scanned first to know the fault code.
Does it occur when you apply the brakes? A warped rotor will cause a shake or shutter (primarily felt in the steering wheel and brake pedal) when the brake are applied. Most shops no longer resurface brake rotors any longer because of the reduced prices for a new replacement rotor, but resurfacing a rotor will bring the rotor true (even no wobble) and take away any brake shimmy or shaking.
Power train These cars were powered by the reliable pushrod PFI 4.9 v8. Making 200 hp and 275 lb feet of torque. These are not racecars by any means whatsoever. For a transmission the cars featured the 4t60e Transaxle. 4t60e standing for 4 speed “T”ransverse mounted 60 series “E”lectronicly controlled. All of this was in charge of moving the cars 3900lbs to 60mph in around 7-8 seconds and giving great passing power. The combo yields impressive fuel economy for a luxury car. With a light foot you can pry over 25 mpg on the highway. Expect 13-17 in town, stoplights turn this car into a gas sucking beast. The DeVille REQUIRES 20 gallons of PREMIUM fuel...............hope this helps
