A seized gear can cause a knocking sound on a 1987 Nissan 5 speed transmission. A blown gasket can also cause this sound.


you have to be more specific for a proper answer... at what speed does it shake?.... 40mph> ? what do you mean mist?


Check into a new steering dampner, it's a common cause for shake at speed in a Jeep, but it could also be alignment or balance.


More than likely yes it can go that fast and at the same time self destruct.


sounds like the timing is wrong.also need to do compression check for blown head gasket or cracked head.

Blown head gasket or a leak at speed. Check your oil and make sure it is not coffee colored. Check your exhaust for white smoke. These would help rule out a blown head gasket. also check to make sure the correct radiator cap is installed my early 1999 had a late 1998 cap and it would lose water at speed no visible leak would heat up sometimes and somtimes not. This fixed the problem not overheated in 1 year


I would suspect you have blown a head gasket. Check for coolant in the oil. A compression test will verify if you indeed have a blown gasket. ==ANOTHER ANSWER== When an engine overheats you run the risk of causing serious damage. You'll need to run a compression test to find out if the head gasket has been blown. Overheating can result in a warped head which causes the gasket to fail. If you have low compression in any of the cylinders but especially any two adjacent cylinders, you will need to pull the head.

Stir, shake, or heat the mixture.


There are several things that can cause your 2003 Dodge Ram cruise control not to work. The most common cause is a blown fuse. A malfunctioning speed sensor can also cause the problem.



wheels need balancing, sometimes shake is only evident at high speed


Extra loud engine sounds. High idle speed. Lean burn condition that could result in engine damage.



Spray carb cleaner at the gasket. If you hear a change in engine noise or engine speed, you have what is called a vacuum leak.


Check the fan fuse. If the fan does not work on any speed then the most likely cause is either a blown fuse or a bad blower motor.



-heat it -mix it/shake it -oxidise it


Tire out of balance or bent wheel.



Check: 1.- PCV vacum hoses 2.- Engine oil cap looseness. 3.- rocker cover gasket


White smoke is a sign of coolant entering the combustion chamber or leaking onto the exhaust and burning. Coolant in the combustion chamber is almost always cause by a blown head gasket or cracked head. This will destroy your engine if you continue to drive it.


Thankfully mine does not shake, thanks for asking. This is really not enough information to diagnose the problem. Does it shake the same every time or does it not shake or shake less sometimes? Is the "check engine" light on? Is there a speed where the shake is more pronounced? Does it have to be full throttle acceleration or does it shake under light acceleration too? Is there a noise accompanying the shake? If you accelerate around a corner is the shake any different? Left or right turn make a difference?


You will feel the steering wheel shake or judder in your hands at a certain speed. You will usually find it is ok at a lower speed then you feel the steering wheel shake as you accelerate and then disappears again as you go faster. Usually the shaking appears at exactly the speed you want to go (Murphy's law)
