Vibration on 2003 Altima 2.4

I have the same problem - Altima 2.4 (2003) Idles perfect in park, but put it in drive and hold the brake and the steering wheel vibrates. Thought it was a motor mount, but mounts didn't fix it. I pulled the intake manifold and checked butterfly valves and they were all good. Cleaned the MAF & throttle body & relearned the air idle control, changed the spark plugs, took it to the dealership and had the computer completely reprogramed. Took the pre cat off and removed the cone (to fix the problem where the cone comes apart and gets sucked up into the head - messing up the valves and rings) None of this fixed problem. The car isnt giving any trouble codes either. Im wondering if something is wrong in the transmission or maybe the streering column itself ?? Also can some of the sensors have a problem without giving a code ??

Why cant i shift my 03 nissan altama out of park


Check to see if you have brake lights. No lights, replace the brake switch at the pedal. This will fix the park problem. If you have lights, then it could be wiring or a bad solenoid at the shifter.

I have a 2003 Nissan Altima making a humming sound towards the front of the motor at idle in Park.

Not sure if alternator or compressor.

Not rattle from timing cover has to be something Nissan already denies.

How is the idle? Is it turned up and idles too much when brakes are applied? How are the motor and tranny mounts? Are they good, solid, and sturdy?

Where do you feel the vibration? if you feel it where you sit it is coming from back which is usually rear brakes. If you feel the vibration in your feet and hands it is coming from the front which could be your ABS or front brakes.
