What could the problem be if you recently went out in some thick mud and now when driving over 40 mph the wheel wobbles and the whole car shakes?

You probably have mud caked on the inside of your rims and on your suspension. Could also have lost a wheel weight as well and thrown off the balance

If your tires are in good shape, it's probably just tire balance. Low speed wobbles and shakes are normally bad tires, tread separations, just FYI.

Need more info like what is the vehicle doing when it shakes, is it idling in park, driving down the road, braking, driving at highway speeds, etc.

Have a wheel alignment done. They will check the front end at the same time. Also are your tires properly balanced and round?

if the steering wheel shakes there can be a problem with alignment. shaking when braking would probably be a brake problem. constant shaking i'd expect you should check the muffler If the front end of your car shakes when just driving normally, your front end probably needs re-aligning. If it shakes when you apply the brakes only, your brake rotors are probably warped and need re-surfaceing. Impossible to answer question, please be more specific. It shakes when... I feel it shake in the steering wheel when... I'm driving along and... etc. It depends on WHEN it shakes. Low speed driving: damaged tire, U-Joint, ignition misfire, burned valve, low engine RPM. Highway driving: loose steering, faulty ball joints, tire balance, bent wheel, tire damage. Engine idle: burned valve, ignition misfire, motor mounts, low engine RPM, dirty injectors, EGR valve... All of the above plus quite a few other possibilities.

sorry to hear your problem .. i had similar problems .. try changing your front stabilizer's bush or change the whole bar ..

You have a tire out of balance. Have all 4 tires balanced and rotated. If it still shakes have the motor mounts inspected.

You may have a ball joint going out or your wheels are unbalanced

User Avatar

you will need a front wheel alignment

User Avatar

if it shakes while your braking your front roters could be warped or if it shakes while your driving try balancing the tires at a tire shop.

This can be a sign of an overactive thyroid. You can get a simple blood test to find out if you have a problem.

If your car shakes only when your going a certain speed, it is most likely resonance. Which means your wheel weights are off, or maybe you dont have any. But if it always shakes, it could be a bent rim. The final option, is something else, it could be many different things

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

maybe you need to have wheels balanced We are actually having that same problem with our car and it isn't the tires. We just bought brand new ones had the mounted and balanced and also a front end alignment done on it and it still shakes while driving..

User Avatar

The engine mount (which are made of rubber) are worn out.

User Avatar

1 of 2 things or both, alignment or balance.

User Avatar

more than likely they need balanced. 65;
