Question about 1983 Toyota Celica
My 81 celica has this slight vibration wich you can feel most when driving on the highway, it happens at any speed and it comes and goes but consistent, meaning that i feel it all the time, it never goes away.
does anyone have any idea what could be causing that?
If this problem exists at high speeds (like 60MPH to 75MPH) the U-joints in the drive shaft could be to blame, but the 81 Celica also has a "center balance bearing" in the middle of the drive shaft (essentially a center mount to the car's floor), and it only has a u-joint behind it - not in front of it. If any of the engine or transmission mounts are damaged it can wear out the center bearing prematurely. Sadly, the Celica also had eight mounting specs for this part so if you just want to replace the drive shaft it may take a lot of work to find one that fits, HOWEVER Toyota's factory repair manual does include detailed instructions on how to rebuild all of these parts if you can ground your car for a few days.
