I have a 1997 Cadillac that does this due to a small leak into cylinder #1 from the cooling system through a head gasket that wets the spark plug making it vibrate for the first 10-15 sec.

Transmission problem solvable by changing fluid or rebuilding transmission (more expensive route but also more effective).

Its an 01 grand caravan sport sometimes speedometer needle moves to 10mph when put into drive and the van is not moving when this happens trans wont shift out of second or third and when it doesn't do it...


Problem is either in the speed sensor and/or instrument cluster. My '01 suffered same issues before it other issues killed it. But, when you do go to shift into gear hold brake and allow it to "swing" until it settles down. This will help with it trying to shift thru the gears and the "hurky jerky".

Car will not move when put into gear


Transmission is a possibility, check the transmission fluid, especially if its automatic. Get a color chart for the fluid to help you. if there are metal shavings, the fluid is flakey, looks metallic, glimmers, or leaves grainy texture then take it to a shop. (Just my advice, might not be the issue.)

My automatic Corolla AE110 vibrates when i stop in gear but it stops as soon as i start moving or when i put it in neutral.What can i do? Please help


It seems that your engine is tuned to very low idle revs, hitting the low resonant frequency of the car at tickover. When in neutral or revving up (moving), the engine stops shaking.
You can have it tuned to be slightly higher so it won't idle so bad, but you'll lose a little bit of fuel efficiency in the bargain.
Alternatively, just shift to neutral - free and easy.

THE KIA SPECTRA AUTOMATIC VIBRATES WHEN ENGINE IS ON AND IDDLE


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.

When driving at 15 miles, the car is usually on second gear, when pressing the gas pedal, one of 3 things happen, it easier feels as a little jump occured, or an increase in RPM, that settles down shortly...


I would suggest a service of the automatic transmission where the filter will be cleaned, bands tightened and new transmission fluid put in. the autotransmission is often forgotten about in our car servicing.
Good Luck

I would suggest having your universal joints checked out , sounds like a bad joint or bearing somewhere in the rear end, if you can get your speed up to about 50, put your rav in neutral and let it coast if it stops vibrating, it most likely is your problem
