Mine is an automatic--not standard. Are you certain that it's not Honda's weak motor mounts? It's a weakness with these Hondas--one not in any manner remedied by today's cheapo PRC parts, either. (Same defective design: The problem will recur later--given your Honda isn't put out of its misery beforehand.) I've had them replaced once already: They've gone bad again...Expensive dealer repair: $1,000+-range, many years ago.. It's a common problem/curse afflicting these Accords. .



Given it is the mounts, proceed in DIY repair with great caution. As I understand it, one may lift the front end onto jack stands, then, wedging the rear wheels, of course. Then, one may carefully lift the oil pan/motor further with a bottle jack, etc.--protecting the pan with a block of wood, etc. Then, one may replace the mounts which allow for replacement--not all do.

Check carefully first with Chilton's or Hayne's manuals (I forget in which I found this long ago--glean perhaps from both) before even considering this, though. In any case, I'm pretty dead certain that it's far more difficult than depicted. This info here is just from the top of my head. Do exhaustive online research online, also--any good tips would prove very helpful and welcome, too.

Please relate back here if you attempt motor mount replacement: I'm a big-time coward--in need of excessive reinforcement!

SOURCE: Vibration in Steering Column at Idle

Engine vibration is the cause of this issue, it is the biggest complaint from many owners, changing the engine mounts will help, as mounts age the rubber gets hard and they don't absorb vibration like they should, new mounts help issue, but it will no stop it altogether. A faulty MAF will not cause vibration, just a hesitation on acceleration at times

My 2003 honda accord was doing this too. The problem is the inner CV axle bearings. The fix is to replace both CV axles. When you choose your CV axle choose a new one not a reman, there are known problems with used CV axles. It's not a hard job. It took me 1hr to do both sides on a lift.

Question 1. My 2003 Honda accord vibrates especially when the AC is on and its on drive or neutral gear, but it does not vibrate/shake when its in motion.


Hello,
It sounds as if your Automatic Transmission is having issues. The first thing to do is check the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). This is covered in the Owner's Manual (should be in your glovebox??).

If the level is low, it will cause issues. Your ATF should be serviced every 30,000 miles.

Sounds like bad engine/trans mounts. The more load you put on it the more vibration engine makes. If mounts are bad, vibration will transfer to body and steering

MY 88 accord vibrates in drive gear


a low idle can cause this fault but only when the car is not moving, may need tune up. a broken engine or transmission mount can also cause fault, car will also thump as it goes up through the gears. last but not least, if the vibration is there all the time when driving the inner C.V joints may be worn, more noticeable under load & acceleration. this should help you diagnose witch fault to look at

A clutch issue youtend to have more of an engagement problem with 1st and reverse gear for a small time period before you notice other gears.You want to check the clutch hydrolic system for any leaks(clutch slave at transmission,clutch master,which you look for leakage on interior above clutch pedal)and at fluid resevoir.you also want to double check condition of trans fluid. strongly recommend using only HONDA BRAND MANUAL TRANS. FLUID when doing maintinance,fluid should be replaced every 30k on this car.The Honda brand fluid is like night and day on these cars,it WILL make a difference in shifting!!TRust Me on this point! Sorry now back to your main clutch issue,when driveing and you go to shift gears and normally notice grinding,with clutch pedal in shft out of gear and before engageing it into next gear do a double pump of clutch pedal then see if when continuing to next gear if it engagees smoother.if so you know you have without a dout a clutch pressure plate/disc problem. I can tell you that in twenty years the only manual transmissions themselves that ever had problems were due to outside influences(gear oil in transmission,improper driveing,etc.)let me know what you find and we can go from there..JOEL

Clean the throttle body, and check for a bad rear engine mount as this is what usually causes the bad vibration your are getting.

You need to check the adjustment on the shifter, I think that may be the problem, do that before assuming the gearbox is defective.
