Question about 2006 Nissan Frontier

2007 nissan frontier/Vibration at idle

When I come to a stop, and the truck is idling in gear, it has a noticeable vibration that disappears when I slip the truck into neutral (or park). Once the truck goes back into gear the vibration returns. Sometimes it can be quite bad, other times not so much, but it always vibrates more in gear then in neutral. The stealership says this is 'normal', I think not.
Any thoughts or suggestions?

    I just took a 2007 for a test drive. 19000kms on it. I found the same problem on this truck.  I know the seller of this vehicle, he is a nissan master mechanic.  He didn't seem to notice it or think there was a problem.
    Just doesn't feel right to me.

SOURCE: 2003 subaru outback engine vibration in gear

Did you recently replace the axles on the vehicle? This problem commonly occurs in Subarus when you replace the axles with non-OEM parts. The only fix seems to be to swap out the axles for OEM parts. Search the forums at subaruoutback.org for many stories of the same condition and some theories on why non-OEM axles cause the problem.

Check the motor mounts. They might be worn or loose which can cause vibration felt when the engine is reved up or running at higher rpms than at idle.

SOURCE: 2005 Nissan Altima makes rattling/vibration noise

It is possible that you have some timing chain noise, especially if you have the 3.5L engine. The secondary timing chain tensioners on the 3.5 have a known problem, Nissan has issued a service bulletin regarding this and there is an updated part to replace them. It is not a cheap job, but your dealer may give you some "goodwill" depending on your mileage. If you have the 2.5L the problem may a couple of other things...even more serious! They had catalytic converters that came apart and got ingested into the engine, eventually destroying it. Try googling "Altima rattle" and include your engine size in the search. There is a ton of info on the net about noises in these cars.

I have a 2007 2.0L Honda Accord. I notice that there is alot of vibration when the car is idling; even when i put it in Park or Neutral. I would be grateful for any suggestions for dealing with this


Try cleaning the throttle body with carburetor cleaner. It could have carbon buildup causing it to run rough. I hope this helps and a can of carb cleaner only cost less than $5.00.

Bad front end vibration while in gear at idle only makes dash and floorboard vibrate


When you are in gear at idle with your foot on the clutch you have placed an axial load on the crank which is pushed forward in the main bearings against a thrust bearing. I suspect a failing thrust face on this bearing as it only works under a clutch release load. The only other point that is under load is the clutch throw out bearing but if that is failing you should be hearing a tinny type of rattle when you have the foot on the clutch

check air filter. may be very dirty or you may have a nest inside of the box causing low air flow into the engine, causing vibration. start there. i have seen cars towed in not running, because they/mice/chipmunk?? had huge nest made out of the carpet underlayment in the air box which is foam and it didnt give the engine enough air to even run , because it was starving for air and car needs air to run. Is the check engine light on?? while engine is running??

My 2001 Escort, 70k runs great but a definate vibration at the steering wheel. I notice it more when cold andwhen it warms up it is not as bad but still noticable vibration at the steering wheel. ...


That mechanic wasn't lying. I currently own three of them and I know a lot of people that own them and they all have a rough idle. The engines are internally balanced and they don't have dampeners, so you get the engine vibration transferred to the car and that is what you are feeling.
