Just two days ago on my way to work driving on the highway my car starts to shake when it reaches at the speed of 60. Usaually I drive 80 miles per hr to work and there is no problem. This never happen since I bought my car. When I'm driving the steriling wheels go more to the right. Can you tell me what's wrong. Does it needs to be fix for allignment? Would this deal with timing belts? The car has not change the belts since bought.

Please respond back quickly.I need a car to go to class tonite.

:cry:

What's the weather like where you are? Any snow, rain, etc recently?

Here is where I am going with this. Look at the wheels, the rims, very closely. Especially look at the inside of the rims. Snow and dirt, even small accumulations will act like a wheel out of balance. A tire with a bad cord will cause similar problems. A brake pad sticking a bit can cause some of the same problems.

Tell me where the speed limit is 80 mph?

Well it actually happen the day after it had snow alot. (Minnesota). I mean you think it would be, because of the snow.
Do you think I should take the car to shop and have them test drive it? Where can I go. Cost?
Well I hope it's nothing like change my timing belts, transmission. Plus I just had a new tire last spring.

There is no speed limit 80mph. Highest is (65mph) here I think. It's just me that drives about there just to get to work, trying to beat the rush hour. Though I'm rushing myself.

Don't go it yet. Take it to the car wash and spray down the wheels and rims inside and out. If they are clean, I suspect your problems will go away.

Something that can cause your car to shake at a certain speed is wheel misalignment or wheel imbalance. If your the lug-nuts on your wheels have loosened, as a result of maybe driving on rough roads, the wheels may become misaligned or imbalanced. Check them or take your car to your mechanic.
