wiked head shake...

Asked by Dec 19, 2010 at 05:50 PM about the 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

just bought a 1997 dodge grand caravan AWD...nice car...with issues.
between 35 mph. and 60 mph. the whole van shakes violently upon acceleration. i have changed tires,balanced tires twice, rotated tires to every other position on car, replaced right front axel (bad cv joint).
the garage that has worked on it says that they all have a little shake...
i say that doesn't seem right...i know of 3 other caravans (2 wheel drive) that are as smooth as glass...W.T.F....any ideas?

also after the replaced the axel, the seal was leaking...a lot...they said it would stop after a while...ok, would that be after the tranny was empty?

i have never had a dodge before...and am a little confused.

p.s. i now live in a condo and am allowed to do very limited work on my own vehicles...T
