It could be a multitude of problems, but start with the easy stuff first. You could have a broken belt in a front tire. Take your front tires off one at a time, put the tire in front of you, and slowly roll it away from you as you watch the sides to see if they stay paralell, or even feel it to see if you can feel a bubble on the side of the tire. Next, it could possibly be a thrown wheel weight from one front tire. Check to see if there are any places where there was a wheel weight, but could have been thrown off. If you can't see anyplace, you may have to have them balance checked at your local garage. Check these things first and one of these possibilities doesn't work, write me back and we'll come up with more ideas. Thanks.

Front end shakes


Ty, first off, do you feel the vibration in the steering wheel? Is it in the steering wheel & front end? I will assume that the tires were inspected and determined to be ok. Sometimes, the shop may have a rookie do the basic inspection and then have an experienced tech come in if there seems to be an issue. The problem with this is that the ford suspension needs to be "loaded" in order to properly inspect for loose components. That means that they would have to either jack the front suspension on an alignment rack from the control arms or use a jack stand under the control arm.. If the vibration is only in the front end and tires are good. It sounds like there may be an issue with a ball joint or control arm bushing. Something along those lines.. More info needed.

Shakes ONLY under acceleration? Goes away when you back off of the throttle? Are you sure?
Please inspect the front and both side engine mounts.The half shafts will cause that sort of a shake(whole car) when they go bad(inboard CV joints).
Aggravated OR caused my a motor mount that has shifted to one side,binding the half shaft.
Common in Chrysler mini vans!!!!!!That is why the front motor mount is adjustable.
Check the engine mount on the short half side first.

'96 4runner shaking problem


This problem is almost always related to worn front end steering components like bushings and tie rod ends or steering gear box wear. have a local tire shop thoroughly inspect the front end and see what they find. Many do this for free in hope of getting the fix job.

When i drive it it shakes really bad it has new tires and have hade them balensed severl times


The front end of the vehicle has several parts that cause the front end to shake. Have you had the front end checked for bad tie rod ends, That is the most common problem.Another thing when does it shake? If it shakes while applying the brakes it could be the rotors need to be turned or it could be both the tie rod ends or the rotors.

I need a diagram of the front suspension and sway bars 91 honda


if its noisy, something is bad wrong. lift it up and have one your kidsturn the steering wheel and look for anything loose. I would not have purchased any car that had been hacked like that. ck ball joints, ck for any loose bolts, ck everything you can see. dont drive it intil you find and repair what is wrong. without knowing what is wrong, i would say it coulld be dangerous.

98 mazda millenia shaking front end at 40 mph?? any clues??


try the simple solution first put your front tires on back and back tires on front. check your air pressure then take it for a drive and see if any thing has changed. if so you probably have a badly worn tire. if no change have someone move the steering wheel back and forth wyle you are under the fornt of the car (dont forget to chalk the wheels) and see if any of your steering components are loose/moving. if nothing is loose and your tires are good try to bounce the front end. if you can really get the front of the car going up and down pretty easy you havce bad struts/shocks.

1999 New Beetle. PLEASE HELP! SHAKES REALLY BAD!


A shake with the engine running (known in the vernacular as a "shimmy") can be caused by several things. In this case, since it's at idle, I'd wager either a.) timing went off, which in an EC (electronic control) vehicle means you should be asking "why me?" or b.) could be a miss. Chances are, whatever the problem, that check engine code that got tripped will tell you what happened. It might be a simple thing like a sensor malfunctioned and now is telling the engine to fire wrong, dwell wrong, too much gas...etc, or it might be something went seriously wrong (broken engine mount, bad distributor...etc). Either way, get that code read and you should be able to get back on the road.
