I have a 2001 gallant es and when am in drive and am stopped at a red light it states to vibrate but when am driving it stops, When I drop it in neutral it stops I've done a tune but it didn't fix it


might be your engine idle is low and is slowed even more by the torque convertor when stationary. In neutra there is no drag on the torque convertor and idle is allowed to stay faster hence no vibration

I have transmission oil leaking between the engine and transmission what could be the cause?


front pump gasket or front pump seal either way tranny will have to come out to rectify and would need to figure out what caused leakage like cracked flywheel causing torque convertor wobble could be loose torque convertor bolts but you should be able to tell that it would cause a rapping noise

Engine vibration intake


check to make sure you have the correct flywheel, these are matched to the engine and is done with or without weights depending on wether or not the engine is internally or externally balanced. also check your motor and transmission mounts.

Motor Vibrates


IF your ****** was removed and re-installed there is a good possibility that there is a problem withe torque convertor. either it is not installed or seated properly or the weight block welded to it may have come off. Also your flex plate ( the part that your torque convertor mounts to) may be warped or bent during re-installation Hope these ideas help you out..

My 98 dodge ram vibrates bad at 40 mph plus at a steady low rpm. if i step on the gas it kinda stops and if i let go of the gas is stops completely it also started misfiring when it started this


Torque convertor shutter? Maintain the speed that it does this, and with your left foot, apply a small amount of pressure to the brake pedal. Not enough to slow vehicle, but enough to disengage the lock up convertor. If it goes away, try servicing the fluid with new 7176. if that doesnt do it, replace the convertor.

I have a 1992 VW Cabriolet about 3 000 rpm it


The vibration at that high rpm is most likely coming from the torque convertor and if a manual transmission , then clutch issues.

Vibration in 1998 town car


The transmission in your car is the 4R70W model,and i've rebuilt hundreds of them through the decades,and the vibration you are likely feeling is in the torque convertor.I call it the "washboard effect",or at least that's what it feels like,running over an old timey washboard,and it can also be described as a shuddering sensation,or chattering.Inside the torque convertor is a clutch that engages to eliminate fluid slippage within the convertor,thus making it more efficient,resulting in better fuel mileage.This clutch becomes weak and slips,and that is what is felt.In most cases,the vibration is felt at speeds of 40 mph and higher.Ford and Lincoln dealers have a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) out about this,and they advise changing the fluid by dropping the pan,and pulling the drain plug in the torque convertor,changing the fluid to a Ford specification fluid,and adding a highly friction modified supplement to the fluid to prevent the washboarding.In most cases,it solves the problem,but in some cases the torque convertor must be replaced.Good luck
