    What do you mean by vibration when idling? Do you mean a misfire at the plug?

Check under the car, and look for any build up of gravel/ stones near the engine and transmission mounts.

My 2001 Escort, 70k runs great but a definate vibration at the steering wheel. I notice it more when cold andwhen it warms up it is not as bad but still noticable vibration at the steering wheel. ...


That mechanic wasn't lying. I currently own three of them and I know a lot of people that own them and they all have a rough idle. The engines are internally balanced and they don't have dampeners, so you get the engine vibration transferred to the car and that is what you are feeling.

Getting vibration when car is put into drive. or stopped at a light idling in drive


You might have a cylinder missing, due to no spark, or a fuel issue. If it shakes, and you feel it at the steering wheel, I would get that looked into.

I have a 2001 ford escort. When I run the A/C in park or nuetral not a problem but when I put in drive it really causes excessive vibration. Any suggestions on possiple fix?


chances are the engine mounts are weak due to the cars age(you will feel the vibration more)the vibration is caused by the loading of the a/c and the torque converter.Engine vibation is felt much more on small/high revving engines(try a 1000cc with a/c and auto,great for granny,45 on freeway)
