I had a similar problem when driving at part throttle right around 40 mph. Automatic trans. fluid needed to be changed.

need more info on ur car. auto/ manual, mileage?

Just a guess at this point would be cv axles (not the cv joint, but the axle itself). Could be bad ball joints or struts as well though.

It does. Just stating that the weak point and cause of the vibration is the shaft itself, not the cv joint.

So, if I'm getting some front-end vibration should I look at replacing the axles sooner than later? 100k on the car, I guess it could be alignment but I don't think so...

Will it eventually shred the whole trans if I let it keep going?

And could I replace these myself if I have the time or not a good idea for a novice mechanic? TY

replacing the cv axles is not all that hard if you are mechanically inclined. there is a write up on this site for it.


EDIT: here's a link. It is for full transmission removal, but it'll get you headed in the right direction.

you might want to check your wheel bearings. they say one way to check it is to jack it up and shake/wobble the wheel in any direction for play. another sign that your bearing is out is to cruise at 40mph or whenever you hear the nosie/vibration and slighty pull to the left or right to see if that noise goes away.if it does then you have a bad wheel bearing. same thing happened to my civic. goodluck!
