needs front wheels balanced, tires inspected, front end parts inspected
Many things can cause the steering wheel to shake when you are driving. However, the most common cause of steering wheel shaking is a bent wheel.
Wheels are out of balance
lose bolt no seriously its probly your alinement is off
sounds like warped or worn rotors to me
i would really like to know myself
If it happens when you are driving fast (60-70 MPH) it could be that your wheels are out of alignment.
shifted or broken belt in the tires
What make the steering wheel shake is the tires that need wheel balance.
Failed steering stabilizer shock, loose tie rod, bent steering component, slipped belt in a tire, etc.
Not the steering wheel shake itself, however what is causing the steering wheel shake, can certainly be extremely dangerous and potentially cause you to lose control of the vehicle. **GET IT CHECKED OUT BEFORE THAT HAPPENS**
Worn steering parts, worn suspension parts, tires out of balance, out of alignment,
Tires out of balance, bent wheel, worn suspension or steering parts, bent driveshaft.
More than likely a bent rim on a front tire, thats what I was just told when recently purchasing new tires.
1. out of balance wheels 2. misaligned front end 3. worn out steering dampner.
Yes A VERY common concern is steering wheel shake due to ice in the rims
Yes, it is possible. Any loose/worn front end part can cause steering wheel to shake.
You may have a bent wheel, defective tire where a steel belt has shifted or broken, worn steering parts, and possibly a defective wheel bearing.
Wheel balance, bent rim, bad tire or worn steering components to name a few.
usually your cars out of alinment
Loose/worn steering components. Especially the steering stabilizer shock and the trac bar.
Your power steering pump and or steering box may be about to give out on you.
I want to know that really badly too!
It sounds like it has whats called bump steer. You need to have the camber of the front wheels checked by steering specialist.
If it varies with driving speed, look for an out-of-round tire. If it vibrates only when braking, you probably have a warped brake rotor.
There are several causes of this but the most common we call a head shake. This is when the tires shake side to side, the cure is to insure the steering is tight and you add one or two hydraulic steering dampers.
