If you notice an issue with the vehicle vibrating, it could mean one of several things. It could be caused from the engine. This is usually if the engine is not getting enough air or fuel that is needs in order to run smoothly. Another way to notice if it is the engine is if the vehicle goes a specific distance, and then will start to shake.

 

 

 

If an axle gets bent, it will start to create a jostle vibration during the drive. The vibrating will then pick up the faster you drive. Another related issue could be a problem with the driveshaft. This spinning part will transfer engine power to the rear axles on a vehicle. If it is bent, the vibration will be noticed.

 

 

 

Another issue that might cause vibrations is any problems with the brakes. A warped brake rotor can lead to vibrations through the vehicle. The brake rotor is an important part of the brake system. Over time, the brake rotor can get bent and misaligned. This is caused by heavy wear and tear. It is a result from overheating to the part. If the brake rotor has an issue, chances are the brake pads will also need to be replaced.

 

 

 

The wheels may also cause an issue with vibrating. This can be noticed through the steering wheel as well. This shaky feeling may be caused by poor wheel bearings. If the vehicle goes through non-typical wear and tear, it will cause the wheel bearings to wear out much sooner than they should. Another issue could be the tie-rod ends or ball joints on the vehicle. This is most noticeable at certain driving speeds.

 

 

 

The tires can also be the source of vibrations. At certain speeds, the vehicle may start to vibrate. This could be the result of poor tires. Make sure to bring the vehicle in and we can inspect it for you. We can even advise you if the tires need to be aligned, rotated, balanced, or replaced.
