Q: I can't drive at high speeds without the car shaking

asked by on

When driving over 60km, the truck get a shake and the ramp drops. What can it be?

My car has 2240000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Your vehicle shaking over 60 km could be caused by several things. The possibilities include: tire separation and/or balance issues, bad shocks, bad springs, and possible driveline issues (u-joints, etc.). Securing the ramp/tailgate may be in order until the problem is resolved. If you would like to have an expert scope out the problem, a certified professional from YourMechanic can test the car and give you a diagnosis of the vehicle’s vibration problem so that this can get resolved.
