Question about 2001 Kia Spectra
THE KIA SPECTRA AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSSION VIBRATES WHEN THE ENGINE IS ON AND THE CAR IS IDDLE.THE VIBRATION STOPS WHEN THE CAR MOVES
The first thing to do is make sure that your vehicle is not due for basic maintenance. Plugs,wires,air/fuel filters. After that you can check to make sure your engine and transmission mounts are in good shape. You can do this with the help of a friend. Open the hood and have your buddy put the car in gear while holding the brake. Have your pal put the vehicle in neutral and then into reverse without letting go of the brake. Your engine should not move very much. It is normal for the engine to move maybe about a quarter of an inch but not much more. If the engine jumps and starts vibrating when thrown into gear, You more than likely have bad mounts or a bad mount somewhere. These mounts are made of rubber and fairly simple to replace. Visually inspect them to make sure they are not cracked or broken. If you replace the mounts,make sure to remove and replace them one at a time. You don't want your engine falling out of the car!!!! Good luck and I hope this was helpful.
