This could be caused by warn out tyers, look for any obvious lumps on the tyers, the best way to check this is to jack up the car on a flat surface (use blocks for additional safety) chock the front wheels. Put in neutral and spin the wheel noting the outside diameter, even a small lump can cause shuddering at low speeds.
other things to check while you have it up on blocks is the (wheel bearings) sideways play of the wheel, there shouldn't be any excessive lateral movement of the wheel, check this by trying to move the wheel in and out of the wheel arch.
additionally check your wheel nuts are correctly tightened holding the rim tight to the hub.
other things can course vibrations like the driveshaft being bent, faulty shocks, even somthing stuck in the wheel arch.
hope some of this helps
not CLIPS,, never heard of engine CLIPS,, you do have motor mounts @ transmission mounts that if bad,,they wiil create vibration in steering wheel if in park while in park or drive or reverse while car is still @ being shifted back @ forth from reverse or drive. here's a soltion for you! while hood is up,engine running,EMERGENCY BRAKE IS ON !! while somone is looking at motor while you shift car from drive to reverse back@ forth,, does motor JUMP and rock back and forth? IF so you have a bad motor or transmission MOUNT and I'VE never heard of CLIPS. hope this is some help..suggest you always get 2nd opinion
It sounds like one or two things could be the problem First check the u-joints but this would probably also give you vibration in drive,The most likely problem would either be the carrier bearing (if it is a two piece drive shaft.) Or the trans mount loose or need of replacement....My money is on the trans mount which is fairly easy to replace and should not set you back more than $75....Good Luck and please rate my diagnosis cause it really helps with future diagnostics... Thank you
You may need new motor mounts...if they are worn out this would allow additonal vibration from the engine to transfer to the vehicle body & doors . If it is 4WD then also check underneath for the center driveshaft mount. Higher mileage cars tend to have the mounts lose there ability to dampen engine movement upon engagement.
Any shop should be able to push on the brake and engage the transmission in drive or reverse and watch the whole vibration event happen.
Then it becomes a determination of which mounts to replace.
