Hi, I had a horrendous vibration which felt like i'd had a blow out, when I tried to stop the vibration and shake through the steering wheel was difficult to hold. I got out expecting to see a flat tyre or at least an object sticking out of the tyre, but all intact. Got back in to find everything back to normal. Thought no more of it until later today same problem, even my passenger could feel the vibration I continued onto the motorway and although the vibration was still there it was only slight however the engine sounded like it was mis-firing and although it would still exceed 70mph you could feel all was not well. Eventually it just passed and went back to normal. It re-occurred on the way home this time during the motorway journey and again it just disappeared. I've searched the forum for related issues and many say it's the drive shaft, what I need clarified is if it's the driveshaft why is it intermittent and not all the time. I plan to have all the wheels off tomorrow for an investigation.
Its a 1.9 diesel 159 with 91,000 miles on a 57 plate.
Sorry for the long thread
