SOURCE: front end vibration

It sounds as though your car has two seperate problems. The first problem with the vibration that goes away when you let off the gas pedal is caused by a bad INNER CV joint. It only vibrates when you are accelerating because that is when the joint is under stress. Your vehicle has two axles, each with an inner and an outer joint. My suggestion is to have a competent shop determine which is the bad side and replace the entire axle. The second vibration which occurs at any speed is most likely cause by either a bad tire, or a bent rim.

SOURCE: Losing Tire Pressure for left rear tire repeatedly

most likely there is a small hole or crack in the tire, and when you drive the rubber gets hot and losens up allowing the hot air inside that is expanding to escape. my recomendation is to replace the tire. better safe than sorry when it comes to tires. good luck to ya

SOURCE: Front vibration in 1998 GMC Sonoma extended cab

since you are getting your car aligned make shure that they check the constant velocity joints.....

when these are bad...what you get is a vibration in one o both sides, also you might hear a tapping sound when steering.

SOURCE: Car jerks to left w/no warning

My opinion, not a good car. But that is a different story. It would be easiest to bring the car in for an alignment. The technician will tell you what the car needs to do the alignment. But if you want to do it yourself then you will need to inspect all the steering componants (tie-rods,struts, lower ball joint, wheel bearings, brakes, wheels, tire wear,tread pattern, and tire pressure, and lug nuts (loose or overtightened). Good luck.

I have a 98 Oldsmobile Intrigue the code c1226 and c1233 what does these codes mean.the track off ,anti-lock,service soon light are on what does this mean


C1226 Right Front Excessive Wheel Speed Variation
C1233 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal Missing
You could have a bad sensor on the left front wheel or bad wiring. Have it checked by a mechanic. Your anti-lock braking system is probably disabled under these conditions.

Noise from the front right tire


Careful, the tire may be delaminating! Look at it carefully for any signs of damage. Jack up that wheel and spin the wheel, see if the tire has bulges or is running out of round.
If any thing but perfect, get another tire.

How do check the front wheel bearing and cv joint on 2001honda civic


The wheel hub brg assy you will hear when going from
around 25 thru 45 mph

Then you remove the brake rotor & feel for wear in the bearing
Not so easy with drive axles in there

If you do one side-- do both (replace)

The CV Joints are checked on a lift or off the ground
by hand, for ripped boots & play in the joints

Next you go into a parking lot or driveway where you can
go forward to check inner joints for a noise, with the wheels
turned all the way & backwards for the outer joints making
noise,wheels turned fully, both directions

Right front shimmy at low speeds, 25 to 40 mph. Replaced front wheel brake pads but was not able to remove the right rotor from hub although it was loose from lug bolts. Steering slightly left and right...


Since you can make it better by unloading the tire a little I would suspect a wheel bearing. You also may just have a bad ball joint. Also if the tires were just rotated and you developed the problem you may have a defective tire.

ABS brake module sounds like a motor running and won't stop unless battery is disconnected. what is fix?


I would pull the fuse for the ABS hydraulic pump and then put it back in and see what happens. Don't ever recall a pump running. Dealer may need to hook up scan tool for diagnostic fault codes, DTCs.



Principles of Operation
The ABS control module receives wheel speed readings from both front wheel speed sensors and the rear differential speed sensor, and processes this information to determine if an ABS event is necessary. The wheel speed sensor electrically senses each tooth of the ABS sensor indicators as it passes through the wheel speed sensor's magnetic field.
The ABS control module continuously monitors and compares the rotational speed of each wheel speed sensor indicator and, when it detects an impending wheel lock, modulates brake pressure to the appropriate brake caliper(s). This is accomplished by triggering the hydraulic control unit (HCU) to open and close the appropriate solenoid valves. Once the affected wheel returns to normal speed, the ABS control module returns the solenoid valves to their normal position, and normal (base) braking resumes.
The ABS control module is self-monitoring. When the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, the ABS control module will do a preliminary electrical check, and at approximately 20 km/h (12 mph), the pump motor is turned on for approximately one-half second. Any malfunction of the ABS system will cause the ABS to shut off; normal power assisted braking, however, remains.
Inspection and Verification — Scan Tool Communications Check
  1. Verify the customer concern by carrying out the Drive Cycle Test.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.
