There are a number of reasons why your car is vibrating. Whether it is a problem with the brakes, the engine, or the driveshaft, it’s important to bring your vehicle to an automotive repair shop if you notice vibrations while driving. Here is a look at some of the most common causes of car vibrations.
You Need Tire Maintenance
Your car will vibrate when your tires have uneven wear. In this case, you need to get a tire rotation service to even out the wear patterns. The problem could also be that your tires are overly worn, in which case they need to be replaced soon. Another possible problem could be that your wheels are out of alignment.
You’re Having Engine Troubles
If it feels like your car is shaking or vibrating because of something going on inside of the engine, visit an automotive repair shop as soon as possible. Regardless of when or why your vehicle is shaking, it will require professional service from a trained and experienced technician.
Your Car’s Underbody Needs Repair
A bent axle, busted CV joints, or a bad driveshaft can sometimes be the root of unusual vehicle vibrations. To get this problem fixed, the mechanics at your local repair shop will inspect your car’s underbody, identify the problem, and repair it to stop the vibrations before the problem gets worse and causes an accident.
Your Brakes Need Service
If you apply the brakes and feel shudders or vibrations, it could be because you have warped brake rotors. Brake rotors can become warped over time for a number of reasons, including poor brake maintenance or heavy braking.
