vibration when I turn left

Recommended Posts

I tought that was a right front wheel bearing but after changed the vibration is still there. Only when I turn left, when I push a pedal cluch the vibration stop.

Someone have an idea?

+1 on the possibility that it may be an engine mount.

IIRC, "Boxtaboy" posted similar symptoms either here or on 986forum.com and it turned out to be an engine mount. For what it's worth he only noticed it during aggressive driving and only when turning in one direction (I can't remember if it was right or left).

Regards, Maurice.

Are you sure that its coming from the front?

When I bought my '98 back in February, there was a shudder coming from the right rear wheel whenever I made a sharp right corner under power.

Digging into the car, it turned out to be caused by a blown right rear strut.

Once I replaced the rear struts, the shudder was gone.

The motor mount was also shot, but that had a different feel to it.

The clutch was not precise, and the shifter was sloppier, plus, in higher rpms, a quick stab and release of the throttle would cause the engine to bounce and buck a bit.

You might want to look at the struts and see if one is covered in oil and/or dirt.

The one that was blown on mine had to have been leaking for a very long time, because the crud was thick on it, but all the other struts were fairly clean for a car with 80k miles on it.

Thank you everybody, no I'm not sure that come from front, I beganning to think that because I filled the vibration in steering. But now, after I put the pedal cluch I will verified an angine mount. The struts are new and the break disc and pads to. The tires are new to.
