Do you feel it in the steering wheel or the seat of your pants?

I want an idea of what could be going on before I head to auto shop rather than shot in the dark

Ok, couple things to be checked. Generally if it's in the seat it's in the rear of the vehicle. So I would start by looking at the U joints in the front to rear drive shaft and tire balance.

If it's got disc brakes, it's possible one is sticking a bit in the back and heating up the rotor. This will also cause this type of vibration. Most of the time though it's a tire balance or universal joint. I can't image the tires haven't been balanced yet, but if not, I would start there. Balance the rear tires.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
