2003 Cruiser vibrates or shakes

When I am at a stop it feels like my car shifts into first, this only happens when I'm stopped. I causes the car to shake. I am guessin' it the transmission but I don't know. It doesn't stahl or seem to loose power, it generally just scares me to death when it happens.

    I have the same problem. I have an 02 that shutters when you stop. I had it in the shop last Thurs. and they told me the computer needed to be reset. Had no problems the first day but by Saturday it was doing the same thing. It is back in the shop today. I'll let you know if they find a better solution.

I know that the PT's, Neon's and Stratus's shake when in gear at a stop. It maybe possible that its time for a tune up aka Spark plugs and Plug wires.

Vibration in transmission


I do not know if this vehicle has a torque converter lockup or not, but sounds like it. Does the transmission stop shaking when you go over 65? Some vehicles have a torque converter lockup, which means when the vehicle is traveling at a certain speed in high gear the torque converter "locks" and there is no slippage to the transmission resulting in better fuel economy. if the torque converter doesn't "unlock" when you slow down to say 45 then the engine will "lug" causing vibration. If this is the case you are not hurting anything by driving, just shift to 3 when it shakes then upshift under lighter load, or take it to a shop that replaces transmission sensors.

WHEN I BRAKE BY A STOP STREET WITH MY 325TI BMW, THEN THERE IS SOME VIBRATION ON THE BRAKE PADDLE


Sounds like you may have warped front rotors. They can be felt in the brake pedal when stopping. The warpage of the rotor actually pushes the caliper piston in and out which is felt by your foot. Another vibration you may feel is the ABS system coming on if there are poor road surfaces.That feels quite a bit different than a warped rotor.

Vibration through the car Transmission-motor Linkage?


Check to make sure both headlights are tight,,,when it rattles at idle go feel the headlight and hold it and see if the noise and vibration goes away,sometimes the headlight has too much clearance and causes a massive vibration,,if thats not it try...loosening all the motor mounts and rock the car back and forth and them retighten them,it reseetles the mounts and sometimes fixes the issue,,also check the lower engine and trans mounts for wear.
