A low idle can cause this fault but only when the car is not moving, may need tune up. a broken engine or transmission mount can also cause fault, car will also thump as it goes up through the gears. last but not least, if the vibration is there all the time when driving the inner C.V joints may be worn, more noticeable under load & acceleration. this should help you diagnose witch fault to look at

Question 1. My 2003 Honda accord vibrates especially when the AC is on and its on drive or neutral gear, but it does not vibrate/shake when its in motion.


Hello,
It sounds as if your Automatic Transmission is having issues. The first thing to do is check the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). This is covered in the Owner's Manual (should be in your glovebox??).

If the level is low, it will cause issues. Your ATF should be serviced every 30,000 miles.

What could make the steering of my Honda accord 1993 vibrate each time l engage d gear to drive this get worst when d ac is on the vibration is more noticeable.


Sounds like bad engine/trans mounts. The more load you put on it the more vibration engine makes. If mounts are bad, vibration will transfer to body and steering

Go to Car-Part.com. You can look there for a used 5-speed for your '88 accord. The site is a nationwide locator of participating salvage yards, very extensive. I'm sure you could find one reasonable.

The cost of tearing down your gear box and repairing it may be prohibitive. That work usually requires a few special tools and a lot of checking tolerances.

Gear Box


You need to check the adjustment on the shifter, I think that may be the problem, do that before assuming the gearbox is defective.
