Question about 1997 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Braking, the vehicle shutters. also, whirring noise at low rpm

Horizontal shuttering occurs when braking, especially at higher speeds.

In the morning, starting the vehicle, there is a whiring noise - at the low rpm and reversing. This goes away on the highway - is it timing belt?

    Is that an easy solve, or is it a debilitating problem? After 2nd and the 3rd gear, the noise is reduced to a minimum, i think because the speed is higher.

Could be a fan clutch. It allows the fan to "slip" up to speed and can make a wind noise untill it gets up to speed.

Transmission shudder on 1997 Mercury Gran Marquis


When you get a shutter- drag the brake pedal lightly-
that will turn off the torque converter clutch if the solenoid
is working

The rpm should go up with any brake pedal application-
if the converter is releasing

If you determine the torque converter clutch is bad & the
shutter,then the trans has to come out

Check engine & trans mounts also for wear

Filled Coolant reservior and radiator Drove trailblazer at highway speed no cooling problem. When slowed down in traffic temperature increased to about 220 and higher, could hear coolant bubbling in...


If there is bubbles occurring even inside the top part of the radiator (where you have the coolant put in), you may have a leak on your head gasket. You may be loosing coolant through the engine.

2000 Chevy Impala 3.8L- While driving at a constant speed the transmission will shutter or flutter between RPM's. If I back off the gas, the shuttering will stop likewise if I step it down, shuttering...


If it does it only at highway speeds...over 40 mph or so....you could have a lock up torque converter issue. (This locks up electrically for overdrive) Dissable the overdrive and see if it will go away. (drive it in 3rd, if you have a 4 speed) (Or tap the brake, this will dissable it also)

Transmission is shuttering at low rpm. shifts fine when accelerating or decelerating but shutters when cruising at a steady speed


A while back you posted a question about a shuttering problem with your GMC at steady speeds. I am currently having the same issue with mine and can not seem to find an obvious problem. Did you get the problem fixed? If so, do you mind sharing what the problem was? I would appreciate it.

My 98 dodge ram vibrates bad at 40 mph plus at a steady low rpm. if i step on the gas it kinda stops and if i let go of the gas is stops completely it also started misfiring when it started this


Torque convertor shutter? Maintain the speed that it does this, and with your left foot, apply a small amount of pressure to the brake pedal. Not enough to slow vehicle, but enough to disengage the lock up convertor. If it goes away, try servicing the fluid with new 7176. if that doesnt do it, replace the convertor.

I have a whirring or griding in my drivetrain. I can coast donw a hill and let the engine idle and I still get the noise. It doesn't sound any different going around corners and gets louder as the speed...


this sounds like(no pun intended) you have a wheel hub bearing assembly failing. they will start a whirring or humming noise and then a growling or grinding noise the worse they get. from your description it is a rotational noise and gets louder and maybe a higher pitch as the vehicle speed increases. have this checked out right away so no further damage is done. they are not cheap assemblies as most GM and Saturn vehicles have the ABS sensor built into them(if your Vue has ABS).

After high speed driving, slow speed shudder


when it starts to shutter get the car up on a lift and spin the wheels and look and see if there is a wheel bubble.
if the brakes were done recently a binding brake pad can cause some of that.
hope this helps

your probably feeling a rough idle of the engine. need a tune up?

in park the engine is not loaded down, just idling at a low rpm=rough
in drive with brake on you have put some load on motor also at low rpm=rough
in drive on the road engine is at higher rpm, = smoother

generally 4 cylinder motors idle a bit rough, especially if one spark plug is not firing right or fouled or one bad spark plug wire. tune up may fix it. if it is not stumbling real bad or stalling then you can live with it.
