Default Shake, raddle, & roll............

I got a new issue with my car.

Front end shaking. I had the wheels balanced 3 times & after that
I started to notice that the shaking was happening when I pressed
the gas. When coasting not feel the very bad shake that I am feeling
from 10 to about 75 or 80 mpr.

Can it be a problem in the engine? Not sure what is causing the problem.

Signed, All Shock Up!

Sounds like tie-rod ends to me. Could also be wheel bearing hubs (but you would hear humming noises). Could also be bad tires. You can balance your tires all you want, but if they're unevenly worn, you will still feel the shaking.

I've bought brand new tires before and had them be bad/shaky a few months afterwards. When i had my shaking, i had both front wheel bearing hubs replaced and one tie-rod end because they were noticeably bad. My car was still shaking so i had all four wheels balanced and rotated. Car was STILL shaking so i had all four brake rotors turned and that cured most of the shaking. Warped rotors will cause shaking and will trip sensors and cause lights to come on on the dash.

If u jack your car up, you can wiggle your wheels and see if theres any play. If there is, you will be able to tell if the play is from wheel bearing hubs or from tie-rod ends or ball joints. If there'* no play and the wheels are tight, then it'* your tires or rotors causing the shaking.

Thanks, as soon as the -0 degree weather breaks I will put it on the jack to check.
