SOURCE: 2003 subaru outback engine vibration in gear

Did you recently replace the axles on the vehicle? This problem commonly occurs in Subarus when you replace the axles with non-OEM parts. The only fix seems to be to swap out the axles for OEM parts. Search the forums at subaruoutback.org for many stories of the same condition and some theories on why non-OEM axles cause the problem.

SOURCE: check engine lite is on:1997 volvo 960 p0705 transmission code

Just because your Check Engine light came on doesn't mean there's something wrong at all. Various Mechanical functions are timed by the Manufacture to signify Servicing required.

Sometimes they're set at 50K miles or more, when the light starts going on, all you have to do is take it to an Authorized Service Shop and they Reset the timer. Most places won't even charge you for doing it unless they find something wrong.

SOURCE: vibration on the engine, change motor mount all

Check the idle control system, also check if all the injectors are working. Provided you already changed the spark plugs.

'97 volvo 960, Orange W-mode arrow blinking, then lost power. What is wrong?


The usual cause of this is a bad PNP switch or gear position sensor.
The "W" is flashing because the transmission control module is stuck in the Winter mode. If you are not familiar with sensor, I suggest you go and have the transmission codes read and reset to begin with and then post back the results.

    I have a 1994 960 volvo and when i accelerate from a stop, I hear a thumping sound from the drive shift area. what is causing this and how do i go about fixing it?


    Thought I would give you a few comments as an owner of two 1993 Volvo 960s, one in Texas (summer car) and one in Sweden where I live.
    My Texas 960 thumps as I accelerate. It can be the center drive shaft bearing that sits in a rubber holder. You can check it by putting your car on a lift and grab hold of this center joint and see if it is loose.

    Or the noise can come from the front exhaust pipe vibrating and hitting the frame (symtom). Can be that the motor mounts are weak and worn out (problem). Best check is to put the car on a lift and have someone start the engine and check to see how much the engine vibrates. Look for scuff marks on the exhaust and frame. I will do the same on my 960 and will report back.

    Remember this, 70-80% of the faults you can see or feel. Bad contacts due to corrision or just loose connections are very common.

    The motor shakes in my 960 volvo sedan why could that be


    A shaking engine usually is an indicator of an engine missfire. Secondary ignition components are the most common failure (Spark plugs, plug wires, etc..). Less likely, but still a consideration are the fuel system components such as the fuel injectors or filter. Further down the list with a vibration in gear at idle are bad engine mounts. If it worsens with engine load such as acceleration then it is likely the ignition system.
    Good luck

    Same problem


    Could be rust or brake dust on the rotors causing vibration. But check the suspension bushings as they could be the cause of the noise and vibration.

    08 accord ex-v6 auto. engine vibration @ idle in park or (gear at stop) when engine is cold to warm until it fully warms. dealer states it's normal. dealer showed me another accord with similar shake.???...


    I've got an 08 4cyl and it doesn't really have the vibration unless its really cold. Usually if I give it about 30 seconds...when the rpms start to come down, its barely noticeable.

    Your transmission is going to fail sooner or later, the whining noise you hear is the the clutch packs in the transmission going out.
