Help! My Car Is Vibrating!

When you are driving, vibrating and shaking can take you by surprise. Your car should not normally do so, but when it does it is a sign of bigger car problems. There are many different problems that can cause vibrating of your car, so how do you know what the cause is? There are three major culprits that may play a role.

Reasons Your Car May Be Vibrating
Cause #1: Tire Trouble
Does your car only shake at certain speeds? Your car could be shaking due to unbalanced or worn tires. Check to see if your treads are separated more than they normally would be. If it has been a while since your last wheel balance, take your vehicle to the shop when possible.

Cause #2: Engine Issues
Engine trouble is a common cause for vibrating of a car. Take notice if your car starts rumbling when it hits certain speeds or when it reaches a specific range. Also, check how your car starts. Does it begin smoothly at first then begin to vibrate after a long time of use?

Cause #3: Brake Problems
Vibrations when you brake indicate that you may have a brake rotor problem. When you brake your calipers and pads press on this rotor to slow your car. It may be warped and require a professional technician to replace it.

When you experience vibrating in your car, it is important to have service completed sooner rather than later. This can save you from costly repairs down the line. Is your car vibrating when you drive? Call J1 Auto Repair today at (630) 932-4427 for repair service in Lombard, IL.
