Shakes or Wobbles problem
2001 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 81000 miles

When I get up to about 50mph the steering wheel starts vibrating and as I increase speed, the vibration increases also. I don't know if I need to balance the tires or what. This is only when I go in a straight line. I thought I just needed more steering fluid but it didn't help. Thanks.

Do you
have the same problem?

I had a simular problem and it was my front wheel hub bearings and that fixed it. They run about $150-200 and are easy to do.
