Vibration from the engine causing the whole car to shake.

    '91 Honda Accord, just bought two days ago, driving fine until today when it started shuddering arythmically while slowing down or stopping for lights, also smells hot and acidic but nothing obviously wrong under the hood. Already know timer belt probably due for replacement--but is this something else?

Sounds like the motor mounts are badley worn or possibly not allinged correctly also check the exhaust for contact with the body, if this is an automatic check your tourqe converter bolts and examine the flywheel with the cover off for out of square or vibration please rate -jeff

Vibration that shakes the whole car

If this engine has a fan clutch check to see if the clutch spins freely when the engine is shut off. If its frozen that will cause a vibration which will shake the entire car.. The next item of interest would be the torque convertor in the transmision. They can shake a car very well also

My 1991 honda accord makes a sqeaking sound when I make turns. It sounds like its coming from the right, front axle. It also shakes a lot while driving.

Assuming you don't have a problem at idle, if it shakes a lot when driving, then you may consider to replace the engine mounts. They are rubber blocks mounting from the engine to the car frame. They are not expensive. The squeaking noise when you make a turn can be cure by changing the power steering fluid, and flush out the old one. You will be amazed to see how muddy the old one is. Cheers.

91 Accord Car will initially start then when driving it will die sometimes starts right away sometimes 10 or 20 minutes later but has gotten more frequent about dying and taking longer to start

I have a 1991 honda accord dx that had the same problem. while driving it would just completely shut down. after about 5 minutes it start and run for a while then shut down again getting more frequently. There was a recall on the ignition control module (ignitor) which is in the distributor. call your local honda dealer with your vin # and will tell you if yours was replaced. If not I bought one from parts store for $60 or you could take a chance and buy one from a junk yard. I bought the whole distributor for $20 as a back up.

Enging vibrating at idle

1) It is very possible your engine mounts can be worn, but

2) the vibration you feel may be also due to the idle itself degrading to the point that the car is shaking. Does the engine sound like it is getting ready to die? what is the engine rpm when you feel the vibration? You may just have a dirty throttle body. In this case, clean the throttle body plate and bore and the problem will go away.

3) did the problem seem to come on suddenly or gradually, if gradually, you may just need some plugs and/or wires, and/or cap/ignition rotor, etc. (a tune up)

4) Also, do you only feel the vibration when the AC system is on?

5) there are some other reasons for abnormal engine vibration at idle, but the above are some of the most common, and simpler to repair.

All the best with the repair!

Honda Accord 2003 - Engine and steering vibration

My 2003 honda accord was doing this too. The problem is the inner CV axle bearings. The fix is to replace both CV axles. When you choose your CV axle choose a new one not a reman, there are known problems with used CV axles. It's not a hard job. It took me 1hr to do both sides on a lift.
