Asked by Dec 30, 2015 at 06:01 PM about the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

First post here, I thought I'd give it a shot to figure
out my situation.
I own a 2004 jeep grand Cherokee and at 30mph I
start to feel a vibration with steady pressure on the
gas pedal. When i let off the gas it goes away.
What could cause this to happen.

Possible u-joint in the drive shaft going bad, Is this an automatic?

Yes it's an automatic,


Another cause for a vibration would be loose torque converter bolts, just 3 of them & easily checked by taking off the inspection cover and checking them. Can you tell what area it is coming from?

Not really, it happens at 30mph when my foot is on the pedal. I feel it in the steering wheel but my friend also felt it in the passenger seat.


Also check the drive shaft at the tail-shaft input at the rear of the trany and at the rear end, to make sure there is no play by pulling-pushing on the driveshaft. Check all the things I mentioned, go from there.

i have the same problem except at 80 mph

could it be the same thing


Yes, Cabaliero, check your drive line, vibration is probably coming from the rear drive shaft. To inspect the u-joints it is best to pull the driveshaft out. First checking the yoke going into the tranys tail shaft that there is no up and down play there.


But going 80 mph you may want to check you tires for balance also, may have lost a wheel weight or something causing a wheel to be out of balance.
