hey sometimes when i drive my car, the front end vibrates, most of the time it wont happen until i reach over 100km, the funny thing is, when i stop and turn the car off, its fine again. does anyone know what this could be? i was think it might be the ABS Sensors.

ummm possibly your abs? but i have another possible solution, have your tyres/wheels been adjusted in any way? because sometimes at a certain speed... if your front end starts vibrating and your car's rear doesn't, generally it means there is a problem with your wheel.

basically, an unbalanced wheel could be the culprit that is making your car vibrate at 100km/ph.

if your wheel is unbalanced, then it will not rotate evenly thus causing the vibration.

If it is vibrating when you are not even touching the brakes - then yes - it could be the same as what I have - some rod in the brake cylinder that doesn't do what it should and means the abs comes on and off slightly.

Can be adjusted but comes back....

have you fitted 2nd hand tyres? probably not but ive herd of tyres going out of shape if you leave them sitting around and make the car vibrate at 80-110 any faster or slower and you dont feel it, but its still dangerous drivin on them kind of tyres

you can get good second hand tyres with 90% tread for $30, so why not?
