    I have an 01 ranger that does the same thing. The vibration is not contastant but comes and goes over and over non stop at higher speed (60-70 mph). We pulled the front drive shaft because I though it was out of balance but it does the same thing. It is going back to the shop for more trial and error to try to figure it out.

I have the exact same car with the 3.0 V6. it does the same exact thing. the trucks just werent made for speed (or towing for that matter). hell, they only top out at 92, if that.

its just one of those things you can suppress for a while, but it'll just keep coming back.

(and not that i should be saying this cas i speed ALL the time =P but try slowing down ;] )

Hi,

Could either be wheel balancing problem or your universal joints needs replacement. The U-joints (or sometimes called cross joints) links the transmission to the propeller shaft and the propeller shaft to the differential.At certain times, it could be the locks or clamps or even the support of the propeller shaft or any of the components of the drivetrain.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a vibration at 70 miles per hour


if the wheel alignment is faulty ( castor wobble ) at 70 mph there is no way that you can describe it as a vibration as it virtually rip the steering wheel out of your hands. If it is a torque converter problem then at around 3850-4025 rpm stationary there will be a vibration of the vehicle and engine The sort of vibration that you are experiencing at 70 mph will come from a drive line problem. If rear wheel drive then it could be faulty "U" joints, worn slip joint or failed rear engine mount
If front wheel drive it may be cv joints or bent drive shafts,wheel bearings or brake callipers not moving freely on the mounting bolts.

Vibration bad thirty miles per hour plus


Start by getting your tires balanced and the underside of your car inspected. Ask the technician to look at your brake rotors while the wheels are off. Deformed rotors can cause vibration, felt especially in the steering.
I wouldn't drive the vehicle unless absolutely necessary until the issue is checked. A severe vibration could lead to catostrophic failure of parts, which in turn could lead to a wreck.

My 2002 2 wheel has vibration in front end whan i go 55-60 miles per hour. alot of shake in the steering wheel also. what could be the culprit


Hi Mikey. Take the vehicle for wheel balancing and alignment. Get the technician at the centre to inspect the steering and suspension linkages while he's doing the alignment, but I think wheel balancing will sort out your problem. Regards John

If the problem sounds or feels like its from the rear of the vehicle, its most likely in the differential, specifically pinion bearings.

Vibration noise seems to come from the speedometer at 40-60 miles per hour.


How bad is the vibration? If it's a bad vibration it could be a faulty CV joint or word U joint.

Hi, I have a 2001 Buick. We just replaced the front tires. Shortly after that we noticed the car vibrates at around 45 to MPH, after we get past this mph the vibration stops. It is not worse when we turn...


Let me see know at 45 miles per hour a vehicle usually shifts gears into the highest gear so could it be the torque converter hanging up and not shifting quick enough or maybe its the U joints. Have the transmission fluid checked for proper level and color.
Here's a small test for you when your accelerating up to 55 miles per hour try letting off the pedal at 44 miles per hour and then reaccelerating up to the 55 mph and tell me if it`s smoother if it is then chances are that it`s hang up on third gear. There's also a electric sensor located on transmission that assist shifting it`s usually controlled by the engine timing.
One more thing did the repair man check to see if the tires where directional tires if there not put on right it could cause vibration and early wear out .Hope i helped you.
