Sound Sometimes driveshaft issues cause vehicles to produce noises. In some cases a low squeaking sound that intensifies with an increases in speed. The sound may completely disappear when traveling at higher speeds and reappear as the vehicle decelerates. This is often the result of a severely damaged U-joint, a part connected to the driveshaft.

Often the vibration intensifies and worsens at increased speeds. Severe vibrations can also indicate other problems, vibrations from tire problems usually happen during acceleration, whereas driveshaft problems cause vibrations when the vehicle is moving or stationary.
