    Thread: Car shakes when going 30-40 mph...I NEED HELP

    1. 03-25-2010 01:00 PM #1
      My car shakes/wobbles when going from 30-40mph. 3rd gear and 4th gear shakes the most when going 30-40. I tried staying on 2nd gear to see if it would shake, but it didnt. It doesn't really shake if you drive slowly when getting to 30mph and getting up to 40mph unless you are listening/feeling the car for a shake.

      UPDATED: My mechanic says the differential is bad. guess i need a new tranny. O well.

      is your vehicle shaking or is your engine stuttering?
