Start by checking the motor mount bushings and if you haven't done so, check plugs, wires and timing. I have noticed a decline in quality inspections in some of the manufacturers now days. Every now and again they let a few get out the door without bolts being torqued down correctly which lets things come lose unexpectedly or bolts fall out. But this sounds like the motor mount bushings are either work or have failed.

    It would seem that your idle speed may have dropped below the recommended speed of 750 - 850 rpm

    I would check this first before going an looking any further, if this is ok then it will be your idle control solenoid which maybe faulty and need to be replaced.

    Let me know how you get on and if you need more information.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner, 2WD, 4.0L V6, 5-speed Automatic has a severe vibration from the speed of 20 mph to 50 mph, then the vibration will slightly deminish.


Is it the engine vibrating or the car? If its the car itself it sounds like u need to have the tires checked & balanced.

Engine vibration


Could be several things, bad motor mount(s), vacuum leak, MAF sensor (DIRTYor bad), IAC(idle air control) if it has one, bad plugs and/or wires, cheap crappy gas, dirty or partially clogged injector(s).

I've changed my engine mounts 3 times on my 2004 A4 cabreolet and they fail within miles(start to vibrate & then within a week, severe knocking) the 2nd time, also changed the ****** mount, 3r


Engine mounts do not go bad in five miles. Sounds like you're treating a symptom and not the cause of a more serious issue. Are you sure all cylinders are firing correctly? That the severe knocking is not coming from your engine internals? Have you checked the steel around the engine mounting points for cracks or other damage? And just in case, if the mounts you are using are poly, are you lubing them before installation?

Severe vibration from engine


If it makes the mirror blur without driving the wheels, then I would say main bearing issues.

Replace balancer. You don't notice them until you rev it up.

1992 Honda Accord with severe vibration


most vibrations at a stop are caused by worn engine mounts. but if it's while you're driving, it could be tire balance, alignment, or bad tires (just because they are new, that doesn't mean they're good). did you do a tune up?
