My chevy mailbu shakes while driving on the interstate. It usually happens at speeds of 60 or above. The steering wheel shakes. This is not constant as it can repeatedly start and stop as you are driving. Vibration is noticeable at slower speeds once in awhile. But is much more noticeable at higher speeds. Any ideas?

You don't yourself. The lube change shop or garage can do this (requires special tools or removal of the pan). for a 2005 you're likely in need of a flush. some models can have a dipstick installed, but its not necessary. Unless you have a serious leak of fluid or shifting issues, it's rare to lose fluid. If you are having issues, then start with a flush and inspection BY A REPUTABLE GARAGE. do not use a dealer or transmission shop, they will always find ways to seprate you from your $$$
Does it shake when you're going fast? If that's the case then have the wheel balanced. If the wheel is unbalanced it will shake during high speed driving. Try to check the underchassis bushings too. If you have worn out bushings issues like this can occur.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
it happen in slow speed or high speed, do brake padel vibrate at same time when you feel steering shaking. if you tell me clear then only i can answer you, if steering shakes in slove speed it is problem with tyre ( fr both tyre need to replace) and if it happen with high speed it could be problem with wheel balancing, get wheel balancing done for fr both tyre, if problem not solved , please let me kmnow. thanks.
Steering wheel tremble, or shaking, can usually be attributed to the fornt tires being out of balance, or, the tires themselves may be out of round, or, a rim could be bent.
I would suggest that you take the vehicle to a tire shop, and get the front tires spun-balanced. During that procedure, the tech will see if the balance is incorrect, the rim is bent, or if the tire is out of round.
Even if you have 'new' tires, an internal issue inside the tire could be the culprit.
Your best course of action is to get it to a tire shop, and get the above items checked out.
I would start by having the tires carefully inspected and balanced if needed. A tire that has a broken internal steel cord can develop a lump or wave in the tread face which will cause the steering wheel to shake as the vehicle speed increases. Usually a tire that is developing such a problem is very close to failing completely [flat or blow-out] so have them checked as soon as possible. An out of balance tire usually just causes a general vibration or shake but can cause bigger problems depending on how out of balance they might be. Worn tie rod ends or other suspension components can cause a similar shake so have those items checked at the same time. Worn struts usually won't cause the shake you are describing but can cause the car to handle quite poorly and bounce excessively on bumpy roads. Wheel bearings often [but not always] make a grumbling/growling kind of noise as they start to go bad but usually won't cause a shake. A good inspection should quickly pinpoint the cause of the problem
