My Vehicle Shakes In Idle: Why Is That Happening?

my vehicle shakes in idle: why is that happening?

South Pointe Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram can help you identify why your vehicle shakes in idle.

One of the unnerving feelings is when you notice your car shuddering while you are driving. Is it a nail in the tire, did that giant pothole hurt my suspension, or do I have a busted driveshaft? There are several parts that could be the culprit as to why the car is shaking, and the potential problems can fluctuate greatly. The most likely cause of the vibrating usually happens near your rims and tires. The tires and rims plant your vehicle to the road, and if anything is out of alignment, will feel it. It could be a broken caliper or a broken transmission. These more major component failures may leave you stranded on the side of the road.

Is Your Car Shaking After New Tires?

Is Your Car Shaking After New Tires?

If you got new tires recently, then the vehicle shuddering could be from the tires that we not balanced correctly. Balancing the tires makes sure the weight is evenly distributed for the smoothest drive possible. So, if you notice the tire shaking when you are driving, it could be a tire that is no longer balanced properly. If the tires are balanced, but your car is still shuddering, be sure to check if the lugnuts are completely tightened, and make sure the tires are inflated to the proper air pressure. If you find that your tires are the root of the shudder, you should have it checked out immediately.

My Steering Wheel Shakes

My Steering Wheel Shakes

If the vehicle vibrates when you brake, that is a pretty good gauge that you need to have your brakes looked at. The most obvious reason for your steering wheel vibration is worn rotors. When drivers press the brake pedal, pieces of metal called brake pads compress against the brake rotors to create friction which will then bring your car to a stop. If you want smooth braking, you require a smooth surface. A warped brake rotor surface will shake when braking, kind of like how a brick road feels rougher than a highway. Other potential causes of the vibrating include stuck calipers and damaged suspension components. If you feel your steering wheel wobble, bring it in to get it inspected.

Why is My Car Shaking in Idle?

Why is My Car Shaking in Idle?

If your vehicle is shaking before you even start driving, then you likely have broken parts. The most obvious causes of your car shaking in idle are:

A Broken Driveshaft – If not perfectly balanced or damaged, it might cause vibrations
Failed CV joints – Working in conjunction with the drive shaft, cv joints get the power from the engine to the wheels and tires and, if damaged, can be the cause of your car shaking.
Engine Mounts That Are Failing – As the name suggests, these parts help mount the engine to the car. If they get broken or worn, it can allow the engine to engine shake under the hood.

If you’ve noticed a shudder in your car, then bring it in, and we’ll thoroughly inspect it and diagnose the problem. Our trained techs will find the source of the shudder and provide you with options to get you back on the road.
