Why double post,? all this does is split answers. with no way to track context.
the FSM coves vib and noise,
no one here can guess we can hear,or feel it. not ever.
if you got to any site or book seller there is huge volumes of information on this topic. complex and many tests are very dangerous.

take it to any ASE shop. let time find it.
in pro shops we have 6 channel electronic ear system
so we can conduct tests , to find the source
vibration can come from::
all of drive train, end to end, engine to tires.
even engine misfire, is vibration
or a bulge in a tire side wall,(danger to the extreme) or lug nuts loose. (i can list 100s more, some even more dangerous.)

Why am I experiencing intermittent vibration when I drive my new car.


A/C compressor kicks on and off, Engine cooling fans do to. This could be the vibration you feel. This is normal.

MY 2005 EQUINOX AWD front right wheel intermittent braking and shaking


Could be caused by a sticking/failing CV joint. If you check boots and see cracks or tears most likely the Joint then got debris which could lead to failure.
Confirm that it FEELS like brakes are active but your NOT applying brakes. If this is the case then my thought on CV joint would be first check. I had one fail a few years ago and it was similar. Vibration started and then I could feel the vehicle slowing.

If you ARE applying brakes and you fee the shudder or vibration then it may be related to a tie rod end. A worn tie rod allows the wheel to go off track slightly and the result we feel when driving is a shudder or vibration.

Hope this helps guide to a solution.

2007 HONDA ACCORD SECOND GEAR SHUDDER


Well, you did a really good job of describing the symptoms, but you didn't do so well describing the car. Are we talking about an automatic or standard transmission? are we talking about a four or six cylinder engine? You are asking about a drivetrain problem without giving any information about what drivetrain the vehicle is equipped with.

With all that said, IF we are talking about an automatic transmission being pushed by a V-6 engine, then there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that matches the symptoms you are describing. In this case, the problem is most likely being caused by a deformed or damaged exhaust pipe "A" mounting bracket.

Inspect the rubber bracket for cracks or torn rubber. If the bracket is damaged replace the bracket. Bend the stud on the exhaust pipe if necessary to get the stud to go through the bracket as straight as possible so the stud does not "ground" against the sides of the bracket. (see diagram)

Between 2300-2800rpm viberation thro body drive feels course


You may have bad baffles in the Exhaust muffler or the Catalytic Converters. Also some Manufacturers put Tuning weights on Exhaust pipes. Since the problem seems to be isolated to engine RPM, you have eliminated many of the other possibilities in the Drivetrain by your description.

If this would happen to be a Ford V-8 with Cam Phasers, they can get out of sync and cause the engine to vibrate. Check your Vibration Damper bolt as a loose pulley can vibrate.

REPEATLY worn out carrier bearing on my 2001 GMC Sonoma extended cab ( 4.3 , 4speed auto 2wd) what could be the cause of this even after I've had it rebalanced?


  • If the bearing fails and seizes up, the rubber will be torn away from the bearing. The seized bearing can tear away the rubber mount that supports the outside of it allowing the bearing to rotate with the driveshaft. This allows the driveshaft to wobble up and down causing a vibration.
  • The rubber can also deteriorate due to age or contamination with oil. The driveshaft will operate at the wrong angle and vibration or noise will result. The vibration occurs most often during hard acceleration.
  • A worn center support bearing can cause a whining sound that varies with vehicle speed. The noise is constant in pitch, rather than changing or intermittent like U-joint noise.
  • If the truck has been raised , the alignment of the drive shaft will also change, A damaged driveshaft can exhibit a variety of symptoms. A clunk that is heard when the transmission is shifted into gear is the most obvious. You can also encounter unusual noise, roughness, or vibration.
    NOTE The engine, torque converter and driveshaft change in frequency as rpm changes. A rebuilt torque converter is often the cause of a vibration that is rpm-related.

    To help differentiate a potential drivetrain problem from other common sources of noise or vibration, it is important to note the speed and driving conditions at which the problem occurs. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to accurately pinpoint drivetrain problems with only a road test. Expand the undercar investigation by putting the vehicle up on the lift, where it is possible to get a good view of what is going on underneath.

    • Check the companion flange, carrier bearing, pinion shaft seal, and pinion bearing, transmission's extension housing seal and bushing, and the u-joints.
    • Check the driveshaft for runout, or the amount that a part wobbles up and down or side to side when it is in motion.

When i drive on highway ill give gas feel like the tire hops let off gas it stops


this sounds like an axle problem. the inner joint will wear and when under load will vibrate and shake steering wheel. it is hard to determine which axle I would look at joints and see if one has some grease starting to sling out of it and replace that axle. have run into this several times on impala's which is same drivetrain

Steering wheel vibration at 65 mpr after I had master brake cylinder replaced. I have to pull off to side of road and stop car then start up again and problem stops. Can feel vibration in brake pedal when...


check balance of tires; if ok, have rotors refinished or replaced; most likely warped rotors if you can feel it in the brake pedal when braking
