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)

Nuetral switch is worn out I priced it it will cost 254.00 dollars. The car will not start in park I have shift to nuetral it also is begining to wear out. I recently replaced a new ignition key and all....


I'm always amazed at how expensive some of these switches are and I see them every day. Sad to say there really isn't any other option other than to replace the switch in this instance... and if it's failed already when in the Park position then it's just a matter of time until it quits working completely.

Vibration


Is the engine light on? If not, It'probly time for an idle air control valve. Also check the motor mounts. Put the car in drive, hold the brake and give it some gas. Do the same thing in reverse. If the motor moves more than a few inches, you may have a broke motor mount.(you watch the motor, let a friend work the gas)

Yes this can cause smoking, the oil is coming up into air cleaner (you may need to change the air filter) through the crankcase breather, the solution drain out the excess oil, do this as soon as possible or you may damage the engine, the O2 sensors, and the Catalytic Converter.
