Why does a mid-engine rwd car vibrate in the rear ONLY when you accelerate above 60 in 3rd 4th and 5th gear even after 3 tire balancings an alignment and faily new struts and bearings?

I would remove the tires one by one and place them on a spin balancer; as the balacer spins, the technician needs to watch the horizon of the tire for a out of round condition and/or bent rim.( a out of round tire can be "in-balance" but still shake your teeth loose.) If your vehicle has a drive shaft vs axle shaft look very closely at the universal joints . I hope this helps you. Mark

Yes, BUT the result would be no better than beforethe alignment because the play in the bad bearings would prevent an accurate alignment.

Brushes and bearings are component parts of a generator. The brushes are used to deliver the field voltage to the revolving rotor. The bearings are needed to allow the rotor to revolve. The bearings also maintain alignment to prevent the rotor from dragging on the stator.

Have the wheel bearings checked, as well as the alignment.

Check tire balance or wheel bearings in front axle

Perhaps alignment if your referring to the profile and stations of the road.

Wheel balance or drive shaft balance. Could be bearings also.

1. out of balance tire 2. Steering out of alignment 3. bad wheel bearings

User Avatar

Check your wheel bearings, or you might need a wheel alignment

User Avatar

bad ignition. plugged air filter. main bearings are bad.

Usually caused by pulley mis-alignment or bad bearings. With the belt off, try turning each pulley with your hand to see if the bearings spin freely and smooth.

Probably have problems with the pinion bearings, carrier bearings and or ring and pinion gears inside the rear differential.

User Avatar

It could be a few things. Maybe a fuel knock caused by timing or something like your rocker arms are out of adjustment. Also you could have bad crank or piston rod bearings or cam bearings.

User Avatar

It's possible, but there are other causes too. Alignment, shocks and front wheel bearings can all cause this.

User Avatar

many causes. check: loose wheel bearings possible bent spindle possible bent suspension part weak springs alignment, if the camber or toe(alignment terms) is out, the tire will not sit in the proper position. depending on the year, your car may take alignment shims to correct the problem. shims are usually an additional cost on top of the alignment.

Wheels need balancing, alignment could be off, wheel bearings, bent rim. Probably just needs wheels balanced.

User Avatar

To make sure no parts that will affect the steering alignment are bent or broken such as tie rod ends ball joints wheel bearings spindles struts control arms ect ect.

User Avatar

A few types of bearings are plain bearings, jewel bearings, and fluid bearings.

User Avatar

For all kinds of things. Better gas mileage, better tire life, so your car goes straight, so your wheel bearings last longer.

User Avatar

Wheel bearings, main bearings, connecting rod bearings, cam bearings, axle bearings, carrier bearings, pinion bearings and so on, need to be more specific.

User Avatar

Cam bearings, Main bearings, Rod bearings.

User Avatar

Spherical bearings are round (ball bearings) while cylindrical bearings are in the shape of elongated rods.

Wheel bearings? Axle bearings? Differential carrier bearings? Engine main bearings? Engine rod bearings? Engine cam bearings? Need more info to help you.
