When accelerating hard, the rear end shake bad soon I remove my foot form the gas it stop. If I accelerate slowly no problems. Any ideas what could be the problem. Thanks


You haven't said what make and model of car it is.

On a rear wheel drive car a worn universal joint in the driveshaft (propshaft) can cause the symptoms you describe. It's sometimes referred to as a 'yoke'.

Wear causes the universal joint/propshaft to be out of line/balance and causes the vibration when the car is moving. Another symptom is a 'clunk' when the car engages gear. That clunk noise is also caused by wear.

You can check it quite easily. get underneath the car, grip the propshaft and try and turn it clockwise/anti clockwise. If there's any movement - it's worn.

1993 Saturn sl2 will make rattling noise coming from under hood while sitting at a light with foot on brake if I put in neutral or park it stops and when I'm driving also what could be wrong with it


Chances are that a heat shield located under your exhaust or the catalytic converter has broke loose and rattles when you are idling in drive. This is common on older cars and is only usually noticed while idling in drive because the engine is working under a slight load and runs a little rougher. A good exhaust shop could probably fix it for very little.

Can a 98 jeep grand cherokee 4.0l perminant 4+4 run without the front propshaft


The front propshaft on my full time 4 wheel drive 94 Grand Cherokee was vibrating badly years ago so I removed it and my Jeep has driven just fine without it since, no vibrations.Doesn't seem to cause any harm that I know of.

Loud noise when put into drive


If it is one big clunk then it might just be the universal joint that connects the drive shaft to the rear end. It is very dangerous to drive a vehicle with bad U-joints. If they break the whole drive shaft falls out. If the front u joint breaks it can act like a pole vault for your vehicle.

When stopped at light/stop sign, rattling comes


Inspect the motor mounts for cracks or breaks in the mount. Ask a friend to stand at the right front fender with the hood open while you start the car. Make sure the emergency brake is on and you block one of the rear tires in front of it and in back of it with a brick or similar solid material. Put the car in drive (1st gear for manual transmission) and with your foot on the brake pedal rev the motor for a few seconds at about 1500-1800 rpm as your friend watches for excessive left and right movement from the engine. Then do the same in reverse and have him stand on the left side and do the same. If one mount is bad it is recommended that all the engine mounts be replaced. There are usually 2 or 3 for the engine and one for the transmission.

Rattling noise from front near alternator


Hi.
I think the problem is the power take off for the front fan ,steering etc. Underneath the middle of the car you will see what looks like a small propshaft pointing towards the front with a doughnut shapped mounting bolted to each end. These rubber joints wear and rattle on tick over or low revs cost is about £40 for the 2 from Japarts
Takes about 2 hours to change.Hope this helps Good luck

Rattle/Vibration from front of vehicle when idling at stop


Hi and welcome to FixYa. Please try this:
GO out to the car, and lift up on the hood. Does it raise a bit and rattle? If so;
Open the hood, and look at the perimeter of the front radiator support. You will see 2 small rubber thingys, that look like that they are screwed onto the metal that is holding the radiator. Unscrew them a little, and close the hood. Pull up on the hood and see if the rattle goes away. If not, repeat unscrewing the rubber things until the lift disappears.

A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated for my assistance.
