Welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you with this problem.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There hasn't been any work done for this problem. I had my tires balanced and rotated this morning to rule that out.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've read other peoples post online and most think it is something in the front end. I was wondering if it could be the torque convertor.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I feel it in the steering wheel.
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
usually if it was a torque converter it usually would not vibrate the steering wheel
are there any codes set in the computer ?
both front hub/bearings have NO up and down play in them at all ? both outer tie rods have no play in them ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There are no codes. I haven't checked the bearings or outer tie rods yet. I just noticed this a couple of days ago.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If its the front end do I need to get it repaired right away or can it wait?
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
the odds are with you feeling the vibration in the steering wheel it will be a front hub/bearing or a tie rod with excessive play in it
with anything loose or bad in the front end it is a good idea to get it fixed as soon as possible as you do not want to have this turn into a safety issue
