Question about 1999 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Steering wheel wobble/notch back to center after turning?

Tires checked for broken belt. New rotors surfaced (that took out wobble of SW when braking), alignment checked, tires balanced (with Big-O ground force machine.) HOnda dealer replaced - Steering rack, and PS pump. Now, steering wheel shutters/sluggish only when returning after a turn. Happens at slow speed turns, (like when NASCAR drivers are warming up tires weaving back and forth.) SW notches/wobbles back to center turing both right or left.

SOURCE: 25mph to 50 mph tire wobble

It could be a couple of things the tires could be out of balance and need rebalanced on the machine or it could of lost a weight from either the inside of rim or outside wherever your weights are located.

SOURCE: steering noise

Here's the answer you were looking for. I hope it's not too late. There's a recall on the reservoir because it starves the pump and they slowly breakdown (whine). Take it in, cash in on the recall, get the new reservoir, demand a new pump. You paid good money for the Cadillac of deserve it. Worked for me!

SOURCE: i have a 2004 (bought

I recommend taking your vehicle to a shop (any shop) that use a Hunter tire balancer. These machines can detect all variables that affect ride quality by not only spinning the rim, but it uses a roller to inspect the tire itself for its "road force". They can also measure the rim while on the machine for run-out to detect for a bent rim. There can be times when a tire can be mounted to the wheel in a postion that promotes more vibration, but the hunter machines can check and show the correct location to minimize the feel to the driver. Here is a picture of the kind of balancer you want your vehicle serviced at. Please let me know how things work out.7e27679.jpg

SOURCE: squeeky belt and front wheel vibration after having belts replaced

I would guess your two issues are separate. The squealing belt could be an adjustment problem or a wet or damaged belt. Belts can vary, how long they last. I have replaced them the next year on some cars and others could 3 or 4 years. The tire vibration could be related to the tire tread or some type of tire defect(a bubble in the side wall), may be an alignment problem. Check the steering components, tie-rods, ball joints, and wheel bearings.

Have 1988 1200 kaw vorg wants to wobble coming to stop have new touring elite tires on didnt help

Hi Mike:
I'm hoping that the new tires were balanced and checked for round when installed.
If the wobble only wants to happen when stopping I'd be checking the front brakes. Make sure the pads are not contaminated or compromised in any way. Check the rotors for warp and surface differences. It never hurts to give them a really good cleaning with a brake clean solvent.

99 4runner extremely bad vibrations when braking on dry road going downhill. On flat also, but not as bad.

Have you had your wheel bearings checked ? You can check them yourself if you put the wheel and tire off the ground and try to press each side of the wheel in opposite directions and the same on the top and bottom. do this with strength and try to do it fast. If it seems to have slack in it then it is probably your wheel bearing. Your tire alignment could also be out. Have you hit a curb hard or anything? The tire and wheel could also be out of balance. Try having them computer balanced at a tire shop. Sometimes tires with several miles on them will start to wobble. Sometimes the tire weights that are used to balance a tire actually come off and the tire will then be out of balance.

Front vibrations when braking and goes away when accelerating

Generally, vibrations occurring when you are braking are caused by warped brake rotors or drums (depending on what you have). The problem will get progressively worse the more you use the brakes. The only cure is to replace the rotors (or drums). You cannot see the warping.

Wobbling or vibration at 60-70 usually is a tire that's either thrown a weight (balancing weight) or a tire that has a broken belt (internally). Try getting the tires balanced.

Steering wheel wobbles when driving slowly and in a straight line

you need to have your tires checked for a slipped belt, also if you get a shake in the steering wheel when you apply the brake you need to have the brake rotors re-surfaced or replaced.

Shake and shimmy in a 1997 Silverado. They replaced the pitman arm and steering arm yesterday and 2 wheel aliignment.

Sounds like you need another shop, Most of the items that would cause your problem should be found by the shop alignment tech. Some things to check, tires: mismatched size or type, separating belts. bent, warped or unbalanced wheels, steering box play (internal slop), loose steering box from frame, congealed fix a flat in one of the tires, worn out or broken shocks, loose wheel bearings, problem could be in the rear tires and felt through the seat. if shimmy is while braking , your rotors will need surfacing or replacing. Not a lot of info was provided. 2 wheel drive or 4, big tires or stock, how quickly did problem start... Good luck

My car wabbles


Check the tires. You may have a broken belt in the tire. A broken belt or shifted belt may be hard to spot. Or it may be a big noticeable bulge in the tire. If your alignment was off yes it would pull but it wouldn't cause a wobble. Also check tire inflation ball joints suspension/suspension bushings tie rods half shaft wheel bearings/hubs bent rim. I would say struts but you got them replaced. But in some cases when you ride on bad struts for a long time your tires will develop flat spots or choppiness...which would give you your wobble.
Also make sure your lug nuts are all tight and the wheels are seated properly on the hubs, if they are tight bring the car to a tire shop and have them balance the two front tires, this will tell you if you have a bent wheel.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting

Hi, I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla the steering wheel vibrates at any speed.Did wheel alignment but aint got better. Pls advise. Cheers, Anks

Vibration or a "shimmey" is an indication that the tires need to be balanced. This is not related to the wheel alignment you had done A poorly balanced tire will vibrate on its own, transferring the vibration all the way through the steering wheel. Have the tires balanced. If this doesn't fixy your issue, then the problem lies between the rotors (could have a warped rotor) and the rack and pinion. Best of luck on your problem.

Steering Wheel Wobble

Have you tried cross checking with another wheel alignment specialist? To me it seems to be coming from the tyres or a dented rim. You could ask them if they do dynamic wheel balancing on the car itself. This will take in consideration the out of round of the hub as well.
Let us know if there is any change.
