The front driveshafts have balancers on them, rubber like clamped onto the shaft, maybe they are broken off or moved from place.

SOURCE: When i put it in reverse it makes a loud clunk

Hi Ali,

This sounds like one or more of your motor/powerplant mounts is broken. Here is an easy test:

Have someone sit in the driver's sear with engine running and trans. in Park.
You stand in front with the hood open. Have them shift from Park to Reverse, and then Drive and back to Reverse and Park, taking time to stay in each gear and give some throttle while holding the brake pedal tight. This will rock or move the engine a certain amount as they shift through the gears and apply power lightly. It will move alot more violently with broken mounts.

If you have a clunking noise on Reverse shifts, you should be able reproduce this with the hood up and pinpoint the noise and/or sight the faulty motor mount with a friend's help. Good luck, I hope this puts you on the right track to fixing this annoying noise.

Sincerely, Tater Todd

SOURCE: F150 2003 5.4L Vibration throughout truck with acceleration

When you say "throughout" that would indicate that it is coming from the rear of the truck..

There could be a number things causing this..

It could be a bad tire or a broken belt on a tire..
A test for this is - roll along at 3 miles per hour.. If you feel a wobble - that is probably a broken belt in a tire..
Or maybe even a bent axle..

It could be a bad universal in the drive shaft..

It could be a broken shock/strut or mount or both..

Best of luck !

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.

Vibration throughout car...change engine mounts, changed centre bearing, gearbox mount, changed both front and rear couplers still have bad vibrations


check for the drive joint phasing and angle setting of the center bearing
mostly with center bearing , the drive shaft has to be split and the flange removed for the bearing replacement
the flange can be put back on in any position and that will throw out the s joint phasing
Take it to a drive line specialist shop and ash them to check the phasing and angles to eliminate the vibration
The vibration could have been from a bad joint and the new joint was not properly installed which will also vibrate
If you are not familiar with the term phasing It is when the joints are in direct line with each other when placed on a flat surface and allows the differentiating speeds of the crosses as they pass through the 90 degrees to cancel each other out and stop the vibration
the drive line specialist will know and explain it better as he will have the drive shaft to show you on

I have a vibration when i put it in drive, seems to go away after i get going doesnt vibrate in reverse


If the vibration is observed when the car is at rest, engine is running, brake pedal is depressed and is on D, check the following:
- Idle speed must be according to the specification.
- Vacuum leak.
- Spark plugs condition and air gaps between the electrodes.
- Fuel system and injectors.
- Engine and transmission mounts for looseness or are broken.
- Muffler and its foundations.

Unknown Vibration Feeling...


Hi, I would try electrical fault. Try this, If you have engine running and handbrake fully on, and foot brake on, put it in drive and accelerate. If engine is rough or vibrating it could be spark plug, leads or coil pack. Under load any one of these will fail and cause a rumble (vibration) in the engine, when the engine has come off load it will run fine. You could also try putting your foot hard down on the pedal from stop position as if you were trying to do a burn out. It will give you the same result as handbrake test. That could be your problem as you mentioned that when aircon is turned on it does it (which is putting load on engine), but as far as slowing down to corner??????.

My toyota 110 car vibrates while on drive but not when in neutral at speed of 0. The vibration tends to increase when the car has warmed up. What could be the problem?


The most common problem for this type of vibration is worn engine and transmission mounts. The rubber gets hard in the mounts and it doesn't isolate normal engine vibration from the driver. Other factors come in here like a mechanical engine problem or a slow idle speed from a problem in the automatic idle speed control system. I suggest you have a local shop take a look at this and see if my guesses as to the cause are fact or fiction.

Low RPM and Vibration in First Gear


Possible dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

Maxima - terrible vibrations in low speed


A bad tire, a loose wheel, a loose tie rod end, a bent rim, (tire balance at higher speeds), a piece of rust or whatever caught between the rim and brake rotor, or between the brake rotor and hub. Have you done anything to it prior to this starting?

I had this issue and it was one of my winter tires about to blow out, showing signs of weakness.. hopefully this helps!

My 2003 rav 4 vibrates on rear end while driving ,i hav a 2litre turbo diesel as i move up the gears it vibrates all through the car when u get to a steady speed it stops vibrateing ,even when u let the...


I would suggest having your universal joints checked out , sounds like a bad joint or bearing somewhere in the rear end, if you can get your speed up to about 50, put your rav in neutral and let it coast if it stops vibrating, it most likely is your problem
