My cars shakin!
When i go about 75 and higher my car starts shakin really bad, i searched and saw someone had the same problem and you guys recommended an alignment but I popped the Hood while it was running and it was definitely not sounding normal... so im not really sure...

the only thing that would make your car shake under the Hood would be a missfire... but if it drives with full power thats not an option.

get your wheels balanced !!

if it is not the engine problem...

then...90% is your wheels are unbalanced!...10% you need a alignment

It's probably your wheels doing the shaking, and your engine just runs shitty. May need to change your plugs, use better gas, clean your fuel injector, or clean your throttle body.

whole car???

if you feel your steering wheel is shaking - front tires need to be balanced

if ass shakes - read tires

if both - both need to be balanced

Yeah i had the same problem you have. I had a shaky steering wheel and i went to go get it balanced by like 2 different shops and its the same. If you have aftermarket rims you might need HUG RINGS. I am waiting for those and i am pretty sure that should do it because the guys at a tire shop told me that everything is fine.. no bend rim, or messed up tire. hopefully that helps
