try putting it in Neutral or Park and see if it still shakes. If it does, set the brake, open the hood, and look at the engine.
The only source ov vibration will be the engine. Look at the motor mounts. My guess is that something is loose or a bushing has failed.
You are probably seeing the air con hose. It usually has a condensation cover over it which also protects it from vibration, and it is split. Check the hose. If there is no evidence of liquid around the split, it should be quite safe to drive the car.
It could also be a breather pipe, in which case there could be some evidence of oil around the hose, Wipe it with a cloth and start the engine. If no liquid emits from it, drive it.
I have a 2008 Chevrolet Captiva LTX VCDI 2.0; Of late when I started the engine and engaged the gear the vehicle would take time to start moving steadily. I came to realize that there was leakage of transmission oil. The technicians sealed the pipe. It seems at this time the oil had almost got finished because when I started out the car started to have problems moving! Then we refilled the oil...but with the wrong hydraulic fluid instead of the recommended DEXRON VI realized later. The problem persisted when I tested driving the gear change could not occur from 1 to 2 and now even with no.1 a strange hissing sound could be heard.
the problem there no GM DEALERS in this area...Tanzania.
I also have a Chevy Captiva 2L Diesel but with the auto box. The MPG on that one is abysmally bad! I bought it a few weeks ago with just under 30K miles on the clock (2007 model), and it returns around 230 miles on a full tank! That's around 17 MPG and probably on par with a Hummer!!
I was expecting the auto box to be less efficient than the manual of course but not to consume twice as much. Anyone out there with any ideas as to why this could be? I was actually already checking under the car to see if it loses fuel... We live in the suburbs and our trips can be considered a mix of urban and extra urban (they are admittedly on the short side and from a cold winter start; still, this doesn't justify the extremely low MPG). The car seems adequately powered for its weight and considering the small'ish engine and auto box.
