my car is shaking and vibrating and it gets worse when i accelerate.

Asked by Oct 15, 2011 at 04:50 PM about the 1999 Nissan Maxima GLE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It only does this when i am driving. It is coming from the front passenger side of the car. I thought it was one of the tires, however I took both tires off and inspected them and they are fine. it started off about two weeks ago but now its really bad. any ideas on what it could be?

Check your ball joints, inner and outer tie rods. I have also seen bad engine mounts and a worn out CV drive shaft cause this problem. Have the tires beens balanced lately?? Hope this helps.

Timing Belt?? This is what the manual says to look out for.
