Tire Vibration

Hi All,

Ive been getting a strange virbration through the steering wheel and pedals between 60 - 70mph when applying the gas, stepping off the gas and braking.

I've had the front pads and discs replaced, wheels balanced etc and still have this strange but semi mild vibration.....any thoughts anyone? Its got 44k on the clock and one year old this month!!!!

PS....If its a duff gearbox like my previous CRD XH I'm gonna torch it!!!!

Nope 20" Startech Alloys, and I've checked it out by putting the stock rims back on and still the same!

Road surface catagory differences dont make it any better here, all 'BLACK TOP' types still cause the vibration.

OK,
Your basic diagnosis has been helpful.
Next step, same speed, trans manually held in 4th.
Now, the transfer case and output shafts (driveshafts) will still be rotating at the same speed they were during your initial diagnostics, but the engine and the torque converter will be turning faster.
If the vibration is still present at the same road speed, it likely is a driveshaft issue.
If the vibration occured at a lower road speed, but same R.P.M. as the vibration was occuring during your initial diagnosis, then the very strong possibility of a torque converter lockup clutch failure presents itself.
My money is on a driveshaft based on your initial diagnosis.

Best I can give you at this distance,
Rob

Hi Rob,

Good diagnostics, I ran her out today, with differing speeds and RPM's in 4th gear and the vibration is still there at speeds between 60 & 70mph. No sign of vibration at any other speeds.

My gut feel is that it is the driveshaft as I get the odd driveshft 'clunk' at slow speeds of around 10mph when I apply the gas as well. As I'm off to Florida in the morning for four weeks I'll book her in to the dealer for when I'm back here in the UK.

I'll give an update to this issue in about 5weeks time.

Cheers Rob....good advice from afar

I had the exact same issue... my torque converter was going bad. I had to replace that and do a transmission rebuild $3,300 dollars. If that is your problem and you caught it early enough, you may be able to just replace the torque converter.

Have you changed the trans fluid yet?

You should take it to a trans shop and get diagnostics done ASAP before it becomes a bigger problem.

Hey UKCommander, hae fun in Florida!

I had my XK in for the vibration about 3 months ago... it turned out to be the passenger wheel bearing AND the front passenger driveshaft. Both of those were replaced under warranty and the vibration I had between 60mph and 80mph went away - problem solved.

Hellooooo UK!

Hey there my friend across the pond.
What came of this vibration we were attempting to figure out?

I generally look for or follow up on my suggestions to see if I'm helping out at all.

Thanks!

Rob
