My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If you have not had the wheel bearings checked for any issues this should be done.If there are any issues with a failing wheel bearing this can cause a fault like this here.If this was checked and found to be o.k. then you need to have the exhaust system checked as it can vibrate at certain decel speeds causing this issue.I have even seen exhaust heat shields vibrating causing this issue.If this is o.k. then the transmission/gearbox needs to be checked for any issues needing repaired with it like a bearing that may be failing in it.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
