Why is my Car Vibrating

Why is my car vibrating
 
One of the most annoying problems you run into if you own a car for a long period of time is vibration. Not only is the vibrating itself irritating, but most people don’t know where it’s coming from.
 
Here is a list of the five most common causes of a vibrating vehicle.
 
Engine problems: If the engine isn’t getting enough air or fuel that it needs to run smoothly than it will start to vibrate or shake.
 
Brake trouble: If the vibrations appear or get louder when you brake, than there’s a good chance you have a warped brake rotor. This can happen if you’re stopping and starting more than the brake can handle.
 
Wobbly Wheels: Having wobbly wheels may mean a number of different things. It could mean there is a wheel alignment issue, a problem with the wheel bearings or they’re just worn out.
 
Axle Problems: Vibrating can occur if you’re axle is bent, which is very possible if you’ve been in a collision.
 
Tire Problems: Tire problems are the number one source of your car’s moving vibrations. This could be because of uneven tire wear or the tires have separated tread.
