Question about Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

Vibration in dash

As you take off and go up the revs in first and second the vibration increases, seems to be coming from below the dash. Once you hit 50 or 60 it goes away.

SOURCE: oscillating vibration around 60-70 mph in 6th gear

sounds like a cv joint to me. That is what usually occurs when one is showing wear. C.V joints usually wear out between 80,000 and 120,000 k.m.

SOURCE: Vibration through the car Transmission-motor Linkage?

Check to make sure both headlights are tight,,,when it rattles at idle go feel the headlight and hold it and see if the noise and vibration goes away,sometimes the headlight has too much clearance and causes a massive vibration,,if thats not it try...loosening all the motor mounts and rock the car back and forth and them retighten them,it reseetles the mounts and sometimes fixes the issue,,also check the lower engine and trans mounts for wear.

The vibrating sound is probably your heat shield on your exhaust,as you rev the engine the vibration is amplified and may be tripping your knock sensor, try removing the heat shield and see what happens.

Heavy vibration from motor


Volvos are hard to diagnose without a visual, but there are a couple of issues that I will try, There is a solonoid that increases the revs when the air con is switched on, this helps the engine with the extra load, if the vaccuum or electric supply to this solonoid fails the revs will not increase and drop the revs causing extreme hardship and rough idle. Lastly, inspect all supporting engine mounts, make sure they are not split or oil saturated. Hope these tips help you minimize costs and resolve your problem, safe driving.

Sounds like the cable is dry and needs lubricating, sometimes you can take off the gearbox end and pour in some oil.

Engine will rev. No drop in speed, no increase in


likely what you are seeing is the first signs of slipping. If permitted to continue, likely it will get worse and you will then lose a bit of speed when it happens. In warmer weather the trans runs a bit hotter and will react to that. If you cannot hear the revs increasing but the tach says they are, it's also possible that for some reason the tach isn't reading correctly. Any good tech should be able to tell the difference. Problem I have is that I'm here and can't drive it to give you a "definite" on either.The only way to verify this yourself would be to attach an external tach to the engine and compare the rpms of the one in your dash to that one.

1998 honda crv vibrates when starting out


Increased vibration from a vehicle indicates worn out engine supports. This vibration often disappears when revving the engine high, but is very noticeable at low revs.

You can have these inspected and possibly replaced to reduce the vibration cominf from your engine.

Hope this helps.
