Check the ,drive shaft for lossness,sound,s like you may have bad Universal joint.It is best to replace all of them when you do this.

Thanks ill check it out


Sounds like it could be U-joints, a drive shaft, the transmission or the rear end. I would have it looked at by a trusted mechanic.


Check the tires also. Possibly a slipped belt.


Could be a wheel bearing going out. Especially when only noticed under a no-load condition. We're on a different measurement scale 10M (meters) translates to about 33 feet.or thereabouts. Obviously to long a distance for a bad tire belt, which would be noticed at a much shorter distance.
