Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla
I have a 2000 toyota corolla ce and the motor is vibrating when car you have your brakes on while on drive. also,the check engine light just came on. the car drives great and I gave it a partial tuneup three weeks ago. I changed the spark plugs, oil, and filters. I tookit to one machanic who told me it was the motor mounts and transmission mounts which he changed but the car is still the same. Does anyone have any idea what this is. I also have the same problem with a Toyota Corolla 1996.As soon as the temperature level rises to above the 1/4 level while on Drive and I brake to halt, it trembles alot.I have asked my mechanic and was advised to change the engine mounts but even after that,it still trembles.Please assist
The most important engine mount for reducing vibration is the right front engine mount, which attaches the timing belt cover to the inside fender. Make sure this one has been replaced. The result is very noticeable. If defective or cracked, this mount can be difficult to diagnose visually, so usually it will still look ok even when it is not. In many cases I've seen mechanics replace only the front mount which is under the radiator - usually this does not give any appreciable reduction in vibration. The rear mount and left mount can reduce vibration a little bit further, especially when the car is in reverse. However the right front mount will usually take out 99% of your vibration. This is usually one of the first things I get done when overhauling a car for my rental fleet to Toyota Corollas.
