Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1995 Mercedes Benz S320 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
Ok this is really driving me crazy. My S320 Mercedes vibrates at 50mph but runs smooth before and after that speed.
My mechanic changed all the rotors, brakes, ball joints, sway bar or stabilizer bar links, and control arm joints. When he took it down from the lift and I drove home, it was nice and smooth for about 5 - 7 miles then it started vibrating again. Urrg! I then balanced all four wheels but to no avail. When I took it back to the mechanic, he put it on the lift and found nothing. I told him to take it down and drive it. He did and it drove smooth and silk. So he said there is no problem(maybe its the road he said). So with egg on my face I left and sure enough after about 5 - 7 miles it got the shakes again. Urrg!
I do hear a rattling or knocking noise on the right front section when I go in a pot hole and the same noise when the car is vibrating. But the mechanic did not find anything that was loose.
I am beginning to think that when it is put on a lift whatever the problem is sorts of goes back into place then by driving it slowly comes out again.
I have no idea what is going on can you help?
have the same problem?
