Intermttent vibration front end at high speeds

1 Answer

Vibration during acceleration is probably from axle going bad. Intermittent vibration at high speed could be a loose piece of plastic under the car or in the wheel well.

I have a 2.4 vtec with 5spd, when I accelerate I get a serious vibration. I've checked the mounts and replaced the right side axle to no avail.


IF your front end is jacked and your front tires are spinning you should be able to see the vibrations. Use a stethoscope on your motor and tranny to isolate vibrations while running.

In your case id start with wheel balancing first. Have them balanced on the car too (ofcourse). Having it only at a specific speed indicates its a harmonic vibration (vibrations that only occur when something rotating,reaches given speeds)
So yeah, start with cheapest repairs and go from there.

I highly doubt its your mounts unless they arn't sitting or torqued properly. If your confident they were installed perfectly i'd ignore that possibility.

Also, with front end jacked and car not running wiggle your wheels left/right, and up/down to see if any play. Spin them and look at them from the front to see if they wobble.

other causes are, tire with a bad tread, one thats about to separate, this is what caused my car to vibrate
deeper causes can include a bad flywheel,, broken or bad motor mount, and a simple alignment

Front end vibrates at high speeds Some vibration at low speeds too



Hi there,

When front-end vibration is more apparant at higher speeds, this usually indicates your front wheels are badly out of balance. This can occur if you regularly drive on unsealed roads, or the wheels have hit the curbside etc.

Have your local tire fitter balance your wheels for you - this involves clipping tiny weights to your wheels, to keep the wheel centred during rotation.

Cheers,

Scott

The font end is vibrating when I hit the brakes at higher speeds 55-65


hi.
if the vibration is only occuring when you press the brakes, then you almost certainly have a warped disk (rotor, if in US) on one of the front brakes. as it only occurs at relatively high speeds, it may not even be visible to the eye, but would need to be measures accurately using a dial gauge.
warped disks are not usually repaired, just replaced.

Steering wheel starts to vibrate at 55 mph vibration goes away at 65 mph or if i maintain 55 to 65 mph while applying pressure to the brake pedal vibration stops. also when drive over a curb, (e.g.backing...


i would suspect somewhere in your front end you have a compliance bushing with excessive movement. these cars front ends depend heavily on these style bushings, and as they wear you can start to see tire wear patterns, looseness in steering, and high speed vibration. make sure you have the front end inspected by a shop that is familier with these types of cars. good luck!
