The next thing to do is check the engine cylinders for correct compression reading, no cylinder should be less than 5% different than the highest reading cylinder. Also have the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer (no pour in the tank cleaner) and the harmonic damper on the crankshaft replaced if it shows signs of wear in the elastic ring.

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.

mcdevito75 here, A vibration while idleing is not really normal, a rough idle could be many things, wrong octane gas, dirty gas filter, dirty smog controls. Have your local shop take a look for you.

2000 toyota solaro, very bad vibrating when sitting idle, especially when ac is running. replaced all the motor mounts. it didn't vibrate until I changed the motor mounts. ???help


Maybe the drain on the battery is causing the engine to slow during idle This might cause the engine to run roughly and induce vibration. Why change motor mounts. Have a service and refit the original mounts if they are not an issue
?

Rough idle on 1990 Honda Accord when the car is put in reverse or drive


Sounds like your rear engine mount is bad. It's a vacuum controlled mount and only an original Honda replacement mount will work to make the car vibration free once again. The aftermarket mounts don't come with the vacuum setup.

This engine does not have a harmonic balancer. This is the cause of the rough in gear idle with the automatic transmission.

Vibration through the car Transmission-motor Linkage?


Check to make sure both headlights are tight,,,when it rattles at idle go feel the headlight and hold it and see if the noise and vibration goes away,sometimes the headlight has too much clearance and causes a massive vibration,,if thats not it try...loosening all the motor mounts and rock the car back and forth and them retighten them,it reseetles the mounts and sometimes fixes the issue,,also check the lower engine and trans mounts for wear.

Car vibrates at idle.


you may have a pulley out of balance. ie harmonic balancer, steering pump, alternator. try increasing idle, set it at 850-900.

Idle


Does the engine stall? if not the motor mount is the issue, it is allowing engine vibration to be sent along the frame to the driver, the mounts have 2 functions, the 1st is of course to hold the engine in place, the 2nd is to isolate the vibration from the driver, engines vibrate allot, but if all the mounts are good you seldom feel it.

If you can, please provide more information about your vibration. Mine vibrates at idle, but it's within normal operating ranges for 217,000 miles.
You could also take a look at the engine mounts.
