    Vibration while Driving

    Wifey called me at work all worried and telling me there was something wrong with the car. She told me the car was shaking and vibrating and the faster you went, the worse it got. I told her I knew exactly what was wrong and I'll fix it when I get home. I did not have to expect working on a brand new car with 1500 miles on it, but when you live in the Snow Belt on a back road the wheels will get packed with snow and ice after blasting through deep snow and drifted roads.

    I backed the car into the garage and quietly went to work not to awaken the Geo in hibernation







    The right rear wheel only had half of much snow and ice packed in there because half of it must have busted loose over a bump causing the vibration.

    take off the wheel and see if you have any bent on the tire or the wheel. . Also check to see if your wheel balacing weight still on both side... it maybe fall off making it off balance.

    I think you missed OPs problem -- it was snow and ice build up in the wheels.
