SOURCE: Maxima - terrible vibrations in low speed

A bad tire, a loose wheel, a loose tie rod end, a bent rim, (tire balance at higher speeds), a piece of rust or whatever caught between the rim and brake rotor, or between the brake rotor and hub. Have you done anything to it prior to this starting?

I had this issue and it was one of my winter tires about to blow out, showing signs of weakness.. hopefully this helps!

SOURCE: top engine mount

You need to loosen the motor mount slightly--just a full turn or two. Place a jack under the oil pan and lift the engine until the strain is relieved on the motor mount and finish removal. Replacement installation is the opposite except you'll want to tighten the new motor mount into place fully (if possible) before lowering the jack.

You need to adjust the ignition timing. If your not familiar with how to do this I'd suggest going to a reliable mechanic.

SOURCE: I just replaced both cv axles on 1995 nissan

Check your tires. Sounds like you might have some separated belts. If you raise the tire off the ground and spin it, you should be able to see some irregularity either in the tread or in the shape of the tire.

I have a 2012 Honda CRV with has vibration at approx. 50k the tires have been balanced but doesn't help

taking it as a vibration and not shakes
check all cv and "U" joints in the drive lines
check engine mounts fir serviceability as a failed mount will allow engine vibrations back through the body
if is the shakes have a wheel alignment done
a vibration could also be from a warped disc rotor so keep that in mind as a possible cause and take it to a brake specialist shop as a last resort

Hi I have a mazda midge 1600. I changed the cv joints but the car still vibrates and 'floats' at 100km/h +... what can be done to fix that? lower suspension arms? steering?

Mounts. Check transmission and engine mounts. Sounds to me that the mounts are worn/broken, causing excess strain on the cv's, which probably was the cause of the cv's going bad. This would also explain the vibration.

98 dodge intrepid with 198,000 miles will vibrate while accelerating between 55 and 60 mph

Check for worn inner cv joints on the cv axles. These cars also have engine mount problems that will let engine drop in engine cradle and cause undue stress on the driveline.

Large clunking noise coming from passenger spring when turning steering wheel on nissan x trail 2002

I'd suspect right outer CV Joint.
I'd check the condition of the boot and see if its lost all its grease.

These can be replaced easy enough...but usually are replaced as an assembly.
In this case, a right CV Shaft assembly may solve this problem.

Hope this helps...

If you are absolutely certain that the wheels are not needing balanced, then I would suspect the CV joints / Driveshafts. Sounds like one of them may be stuck.

At that mileage, your engine mounts probably are bad and need to be replaced. They would cause the engine to vibrate the whole car, when in gear, if the mounts are worn and have too much play. Have them checked.

It's your motor & transmission mounts - relatively inexpensive.
Here is where you can get all 4 mounts for your car - AUTOMATIC transmission:
If you feel like reading, here is a bit of information about the function of these mounts on a car:

The purpose of engine motor transmission mounts: Most mounts made of metal and rubber, many newer model mounts are filled with hydraulic fluid, some advance hydraulic mounts come with electronic variable speed control by ECM engine control module. The basic design are the same to support between engine, transmission and subframe. They work hard to keep engine and transmission running smooth minimizing the amount of rattling and vibration from acceleration and stops. At the same time mounts are supporting all major power train systems keeping all mechanical components in balance level and position. Motor mounts are extremely important vehicle parts that stabilize and align a vehicle engine inside the engine compartment. Although small in size and relatively cheap in cost, motor mounts can cause tremendous mechanical problems if they break or go bad. Engine motor mounts are small parts that are used to stabilize and properly align a vehicle engine. When motor mounts go bad, they can cause a variety of symptoms, ranging from mechanical damage to excessive engine noise.

My car's dash rumbles very hard when idling and in reverse. My friend said something in the (AUTO) transmission is causing the hard idling. Any ideas?

Good afternoon. Sounds like you need to check the engine/transmission mounts. Bad mounts will cause a vibration you are describing and will transmit normal engine vibration into the frame of vehicle causing vibration to occur. Most mounts are made of rubber but some are filled with oil and are called hydro-mounts. Check all mounts for cracked rubber at mount where it attatches to engine,transmission and frame. Hope you find this information useful! Have a great day!

Gear problem

Check out the engine and gearbox mountings. With the engine cold, try and rock the engine backwards and forwards. Have someone check each mounting in turn.
