Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Have you checked the vehicle over for any loose suspension parts? Does it pull? How are the brakes? do they pulsate?

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Did they check the tires for cupped edges?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Check tires can hear a Lil pulsating when driving at low speeds like a woo woo woo woo and as I get up to Highway speed get this vibration on and off I can accelerate or decelerate pass it started all of a sudden
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Maybe a loose wheel bearing.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Need front brakes and rotors and also when vibrations start speedometer will pulsate
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Slightly
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

You need to lift the front tires off the ground and shake them side to side and top to bottom feeling for loose parts.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Could also be related to the brakes. If the rotors are warped significantly.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
K it's raining here will have to check tomorrow
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

ok sounds good.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I had it checked at good year yesterday tires rebalanced they would've told me if that was bad I think they checked all that because that what I had them to look at what was causing the vibrations so my guess all that is good
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

Yes, but techs at goodyear are not as experienced as Dealer techs usually.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I know that but I'm saying as far as checking the wheels and suspension the guy road with me and checked a number of things
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
they did tell me I need front brakes and rotors
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

The brakes could cause a vibration.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Went to get alignment and was told I need 2upper a arms and 2 ball joints don't remember if it was for front or back
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

That could also cause a vibration if you have loose suspension parts.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

That is front, rear does not have those parts.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
K will have to get those put on and see how it goes
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
But would any of that make the speedometer pulsate a Lil like it does when vibration starts
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

You could have a problem with the VSS sensor, or the gauge.

Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

The speedo clusters are a common problem.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Speedo cluster ????
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It just started this and is only doing it when vibration starts
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

I meant instrument cluster.
