High speed vibration/buffeting?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a beautiful 2004 s-type(pictures will follow) Has any of you good folk any ideas on why I would have a sort of high speed rumble from the rear or mid section when I give her the beans??? All the gears are fine, and kicks down no problem....It almost sounds like I've left the window open?

 

Kindest Regards

Welcome to the Club, Phil.

 

I could be wrong, but a quick guess points me to tyres.  The S type is rear wheel drive, so I think the rumble must come from the rear tyres.

 

I used to have a Rover Sterling which was front wheel drive and got a similar rumble when  it touched 70.  A quick tyre check solved it! [plus a new pair of Dunlops].

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
