Recently I've noticed that my van is shaking really bad, then it just stops. It does it at 25 MPH all the way up to 70MPH so I don't think speed is a factor. It hasn't done it enough to determine if it's on acceleration or deceleration, but I would say I mostly notice it at idle or cruising speed. It does do it at a particular location of my commute but again I dont think it has anything to do with terrain or speed. If I were have to make an educated guess I would say it does it on acceleration. It will almost violently shake from the front end and then 3 seconds later it just stops. It doesnt seem like a tire or rim problem because I've had those before and know what they feel like. Also, it's a front to back shake as opposed to a side to side shake. Kind of feels like your driving over 30 or so mini speed bumps. My car is fairly new with fairly low miles so I wouldnt suspect a transmission problem but who knows. Also the other day I stopped at a stop sign then when I went to start going again it felt like the transmission was in nuetral, I even checked to make sure I was in drive, but by the time I looked down and checked then looked back up again it started going, this seems odd to me as well, seeing as though I was in drive when I came to the stop sign and never shifted out of drive, yet it felt like it was in nuetral. Any ideas? I don't know if the problems are even related as it's only done the nuetral thing once but it shakes randomly all the time.
have the same problem?
