Unknown Vibration Feeling...


Hi, I would try electrical fault. Try this, If you have engine running and handbrake fully on, and foot brake on, put it in drive and accelerate. If engine is rough or vibrating it could be spark plug, leads or coil pack. Under load any one of these will fail and cause a rumble (vibration) in the engine, when the engine has come off load it will run fine. You could also try putting your foot hard down on the pedal from stop position as if you were trying to do a burn out. It will give you the same result as handbrake test. That could be your problem as you mentioned that when aircon is turned on it does it (which is putting load on engine), but as far as slowing down to corner??????.

Run out of gas and refilled but the engine vibrates a lot now


Not positive, but it's very possible that you damaged the electric fuel pump by running out of gas. Its always a good idea to fill up when you are at a 1/4 of a tank to avoid damage to the pump.

I believe that I have either a bad transmission mount or mounts, and possible a bad motor mount or mounts because the car vibrates in drive while running and also vibrates in neutral while running but not...


Get a friend to open the hood and look at the engine go up or down in the engine compartment when the brakes are firmly applied and switching between reverse and drive. Look for the motor mounts for behavior where tears exist in the rubber.

Check engine light on and oil light when driving 60 miles start to shake


I would say you have two different problem's, The Shake could be from your front end or tires. As for the oil light & check engine, If you oil level is ok This could be a number of things I would start with motor mount, This could also cause the vibration in steering. Have a frend to accelerate to a high speed and watch the motor and see how much it moves on you, If it has a lot of movement this is your problem.You can take to autozone or napa, And they will see if any codes are coming up and tell you if you need anything further With the oil lite and check engine. Good luck to you.

I have motor vibration. My mechanic at I have a leak around says the manifold. cant that be true.


Yes it can be the problem. If you are pulling a vacuum into the intake manifold, you will have an improper mixture of fuel to air. A lot of other things can cause an engine to "miss" which causes the engine to vibrate. A perfectly good running engine can vibrate if you have a broken motor mount for example. You could also have faulty spark plug wires, even a blown head gasket. You have to start somewhere. You need a mechanic you can trust, don't be shy, ask him what else can cause your engine to vibrate. Hopefully, he will have a scanner to see what your onboard computer is showing to be wrong. If you are near an autozone or advance auto parts store they will hook the scanner up to your car for free to read what your computer is showing to be wrong. If it shows a code for "engine lean" then that would support the idea that you have a vacuum leak. Hope that helps.

I would like to reset or disconnect my check engine line on 1999 chevy blazer. The vehicle runs fine and I don't want to pay for it. How can I do this ?


The check engine light is there to tell you that someting is wrong.
Yes the car "seems" to run fine, yet is most likely using more gas, and if you ignore this to long can cause a lot of harm and a lot of $$$.
Have it fixed at some point soon.
And you can't disconnect it.

Engine vibration


The vibration like comes from a misfiring cylinder when cold, which in turn can have many causes; bad spark plug, bad coil, bad fuel injector, leaking head gasket etc.

With such a major overhaul that you did recently I'd go back to the shop since it can be related to the repair. This is especially true if you see white smoke from the tail pipe.

Good luck!

check the axle end play. if there is significant axle in-out motion, this will cause excessive inside pad wear. it will also cause the caliper to bind under breaking conditions, yet slide freely when there is no stress applied
