2003 Impala LS.
285,000 miles.

It only happens during the first few minutes of driving the car then I wont feel it again until I leave work in the evening or use it again the next day.

During the first few minutes of driving I always no feel a rumble when getting up to around 45 - 55 degrees. It will be smooth then --rumble strip--- smooth ---rumble strip--- smooth then maybe again 30 seconds later, then nothing at all but smooth driving for the rest of the trip.

Struts/shocks were replaced last summer.

Inspect your tires. Tread separation could be causing the rumble which disappears when the faulty tire becomes warm from driving.

Is that something I can even do or do I need to take it in?

What would I be looking for? I plan on replacing the tires next year if I make it through the winter, I will have to check the age on them.. I do have three types on there now due to blow outs and nails, but this wasnt always happening, just the past few months.

You can clean the parts, look online for a turorial

As for the tires, look for a deformation in the sidewall or tread, may need to take wheel off car to inspect all surfaces.

Examples below...

I use falken tires on my car .


stay away from Firestone/bridgestone all they make is faulty tires.

I had a death-stone tire and it had tire separation issues that tire was manufactured in 2011.


good thing I noticed the thumping it before it had catastrophic failure i.e blow out..

Great post Pitch! Pretty much says it all.

Jezo, you have 3 different tires, thats a screaming clue. Even though they may look decent, thats just not good enough. Thats three different tread patterns, three different reactions to temperature (it is getting cooler now), three times the trouble really.

A quick "poor guys cure" would be to put the two matching tires on the front reguardless of tread. A bad tire is better to have on the rear if you have to have one-if its in the front you'll feel it & it causes more damage (tie rods, struts, ect).

MAF, EGR, IAC are all issues you would have in park. You have a "moving" problem Wink

I seen a tire blow out before on the freeway the person was going 75-80mph when it happened too.

it was a rear tire . we did pull over to see if it damaged the car since it was raining chunks of tire & rim all over our car..
we allowed him the right of way to pull over. . the driver was able to maintain going straight with out losing control.




also blew out a tire on a rental car before (avoiding a accident that happened in the oncoming lanes car was pushed into our lanes ) that was a Chevy Aveo

rental place did not charge for the blown out tire.
