If you let go of steering wheel and step on brakes does the wheel vibrate?

I'd say its either warped rotors, power steering malfunction, or possible wheel bearing, although if wheel bearing you should feel/hear a hum which would get louder depending on which way you turn the vehicle.

I recently took my vehicle to a transmission shop and they had to rebuilt the transmission right through. I was recently told that the transmission is a common problem in these vehicles. Sad that GM can not fix or recall the transmisison since there is a problem.

I have a 2007 Pontiac Torrent FWD with a violent low speed vibration. we have replaced the lower control arm assembly and the hub bearings along with the brake pads and rotors.


Struts would not cause vibration problems, A CV joint could, turn your vehicle in a parking lot hard right, make a circle than turn left make a circle ,if you hear a noises you have a cv joint problem. If you feel vibration on the steering wheel its in the front, if you feel it in the seat its in the rear.
Tires out of round & Balance very common as well brake rotors cause vibrations.

check the steering arm damper shocky as it may be failing and not providing the proper dampening effect to the steering. Check the wheel bearing adjustment and condition.

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.

Turning sharply in parking lot vibration or rubbing feeling in the steering also in reverse on 2001 grande cherokee with quadra track 2


1st let me make sure I understand your Jeeps 4 wheel drive. I believe the quadra trac system is a full time 4 wheel drive, there is no 2 wheel drive setting, only a separate 4 Lo (for very slow speed). If this is correct, the problem is, the quadra trac system you have is supposed to compensate for any variations in wheel speed, whether it's driving in the snow, or cutting the wheels sharply to park on dry pavement. What u describe is typical behavior of a part time 4 wheel drive system. The problem is, your full time 4x4 should be compensating for this, and it's not. So, let me know if the above info about your 4wd is accurate (no part time 4wd setting, no 2wd setting, only full time 4wd and 4Lo setting. If it is, the system is not compensating for changes in the wheel slippage correctly.

Bearings or cv joint?


Wheel bearings.
For quickly ruling out the CV Joint, in a parking lot, turn one way in a sharp circle, then the other way circle sharply. A clicking sound is indicative of a bad c/v joint or 1/2 shaft.
Humming while in motion (most of times it will only occur during a specific speed range - over a certain speed goes away) says a wheel bearing is shot.
Normally you should replace both at the same time... however you can check with a laser temp gauge each front hub after driving. The hotter one is bad - or a less scientific approach is to swerve going down the road. and listen for an decrease in noise going in one diretcion over the other.
If you are turning the steering wheel right, and the noise goes away, the right bearing is bad and vice versa.
