Question type: Maintenance & Repair

There is no pulling or shaking when accelerating or deceleration, only when holding speed and it seems to disappear when going
65 or faster. the sound and shaking is on the drivers side front of car.

It got hit. It is now rattling and rumbling. You want to know what's wrong? --- It's really hard to diagnose accident damage using a keyboard. It's probably damage to the wheel or suspension. Did you have it checked out before you risked your life by taking it on the public highways at 65 mph?

GET that inconsiderate driver's info, and take 'em to court...will glady pay the cost of repair rather than be dragged through the justice system-

Really, TS. Tony we would have to see the car to make an accurate assessment of what is going on with your car. This is one of those. The door and front fender are out of alignment, and going down the road, sure, it will shake rattle and roll. 10mph does not sound like a lot, but my insurance had to pay out $400 on a 1mph bump, Lincoln Town Car vs. uh, good grief now I can't remember what it was..small. And ditto, do not drive at 65 or even less 'till it's fixed, and a 94 could be totaled.

It's worth under $2k. Maybe totaled.
