08 dodge nitro 4 litre engine while driving it vibrates like I'm driving on rumbles all the time
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

sorry i missed you,,

does it do this in all gears?

does it only do it when in a pull or will i vybrate also while coasting?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i only notice it in high gears and it does not do it when it's pulling hard it does not do it when it's coasting pretty much just when I'm driving speed limit and on cruise control
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

is your nitro a 2 or 4wd?

try to explain to me exactly what it does,

im trying to get a sense of hat it is dong

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It's 4wd and it vibrates on and off when I'm driving and it seems to do it while I'm picking up speed and when I'm on cross at 110 to 120 just when it puts a little torque on it
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

ok..

sense it only seems to do this is a pull..when under torqe,..

i would think the problem isnt the transmission itself..

i would think the problem is the drive axle ,

either one of the inner cv joints on the front axles or the carrier bearing for the rear drive shaft

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 11 months ago.

the common thing would be the rear U-joint on the drive shaft
