Shakes or Wobbles problem
1997 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 128000 miles
I have a 1997 Honda Civic Vtir, it has recently developed a " shaking" problem where the steering wheel and car will start to shake (like when you need a wheel alignment and go a bit fast), the shaking grows stronger and more violent and does not stop completely until the car stops moving (i.E. Slowing down once started does not stop the shaking, will stop once car is still). After stopping, I can then drive off and the problem has gone. The problem only seems to start at higher speeds but not all the time (I drive on the highway every day and it has occurred 3 times in the last 2 weeks, each time at over 70 k/h (44 mile/h)). When it’s shaking I have tried just putting the clutch in, this made no difference. After the first time it happened, when I got home it smelled like I had been driving with the handbrake on; it hasn’t repeated the smell since.
What could be causing the problem?
