2005 FX35 - shaking when driving over 40mph

Postby 2005FX35 » Thu Mar 17, 2016 10:32 am

Hello,

I'm the second owner of my 2005 Infiniti FX35 AWD which has 160,000. Recently had major maintenance done including coolant flush, gear oil changed in front and rear differentials among other things. In the last month I've had an intermittent issue (occurred twice) that I've not encountered since I purchased my FX35 4 years ago.

When I drive over 40 mph, the entire car starts shaking almost as if the wheel were about to fall off...I notice that the gear shifter for the transmission is moving back and forth with the shaking quite a lot when this happens as well. At first I thought maybe it was a wheel weight that flew off and threw the wheel way out of balance, but they the shaking stopped after that drive and didn't run into the issue until a month later.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you :)

Barry

Just read another forum where a guys sounds like he has same issue I have---said it could be the rear brake caliper sticking---any legitimacy to this?

I have this same problem with my 2012, but it occurs when breaking. At highway speeds it's greatly intensified. Just rolling up to a stop light, it feels like typical warped rotors. I initially thought that was the case, but after replacing all four pads and rotors, it's still doing it.
