It is possible depending on how the fly wheel was balanced at the factory. Some models actually use welds to balance these instead of drilling like they should. Another point could be the timing in the motor itself. In cars and trucks you have tensioners and guides you can adjust to take play out of the timing belt. I'm sure there are similar parts in the motor cycle engine. It is after all an engine and has the same basic concepts of operations. If the shop is thinking its a balance wheel problem it is certainly possible. The worst that can happen if you have them do the repair is there is no balance problem and they find the real problem.

2004 liberty 107000 miles. Engine runs rough at 2000-2500 RPM causing steering wheel and gas pedal vibration. plugs due to be changed.what else could cause this rough engine


I think you are on the right track with a tune up. Replace the wires, air filter and oil as well. I also would run a cleaner through the fuel lines. An STP or a Lucas would be better.

2004 ford freestar 3.9 engine is rough vibration at about 1000 rpm, above and below 1000 rpm it runs smooth


Has the vehicle not been at a repair shop for
a couple of days, so it can be driven & the issues
figured out

All your doing is telling us the place you went can't
diagnose a vehicle

That sadly, is what we try to respond to hundreds
of times a week

When a vehicle runs rough & vibrates, you can not
come on here & say a shop can't find anything wrong,
when you can

The vehicle has to be properly diagnosed

We can't guess & you won't understand any
solutions or be in a position to tell a shop how
to do their job

If the engine seems to run fine over 1450 RPM maybe there is a vacuum hose leaking or EGR valve is slightly stuck open. Any help from the OBD II trouble codes? Or is there simply no MIL and no stored information in the OBD II computer read at the local parts store through the connector by the drivers knee?

98 lincoln navigator loud noise, shaking, high rpm at idle, drive


I don't know how much oil you had to put in but it sounds like you have maybe more than opne issue and both sound major. One is engine reving and speed not picking up sounds like trans problem. Two the engine shaking and making noise and being run low on oil leans toward possible engine damage. If your mechanicly inclined check all fluids and when checking trans fluid smell it. If it smells burnt the trans has been damaged. Check oil pressure and make sure coolant is full.You may have to take it into the shop.

200 hp suzuki outboard runs rough in mid rpm range


You may need to syncronize the carbs. Run it and mark the throttle lever for your problem areas so you can duplicate the throttle position on dry land. When on land move the throttle lever to the problem area and then remove the engine cover. NOW look for loose connections and fittings especially carb linkage. At the worst you may have to have each carb adjusted with a flow meter if you do not find a worn part. A good boat shop will have such meters.

Runs rough at low rpms. Misfires but goes away at about 2000 rpm.


Sounds to me like it could be a Mass Airflow Sensor issue. Or Air fuel mixture problem. Is the harness to the MAF and Trottle control sensors hooked up right? These are just simple solutions that may work. Check all of your fuses as well. One could be blown causeing you DLC not to operate. DLC =DATA LINK CONNECTOR. Find the fuse... read the code.... solve them problem! GOOD LUCK! hope this helps.

RPM QUESTION


and i took it down to the shop today just to check something out and in talking to the owner i was told that i was running at too low an rpm most times. i shift from 1st to 2nd at 3k then shift up at 4k for each gear after but he told me i should be getting up to between 5 and 6k as running under 4k could most likely be lugging the engine. i shift the way i do due to firstly the bike having 40k miles on it when i bought it so i'm trying to put as little wear on the engine as i can in hopes of it lasting me awhile, and also just because past 4k the engine really starts getting noisy, i know this is normal, but i just can't help but think it is hurting the engine. is there any real harm in running the rpms a bit low like i have, or running them as high as the dealer said, for that matter is anything below the red line fair game? i just want whatever is best for the engine.,4500 to 5000 rpms and up is the area the bike has quickest reponse. But I only use that range for getting up to speed, then I generally shift to a higher gear and lower rpms. It makes a difference in the mpg. and I can easily shift down for passing. I wouldn't suggest going much below 3000 to 3500 in higher gears. That would be lugging it. You don't want to be in 5th and doing 20 miles per hour.,,,

Rough idle


I took mine in to change the plugs and they said there are four O2 sensors in the fuel mixture system and two were bad. I didn't replace them since they were a little pricey ($500 to replace both) and I have 103,000 on the car. Has very similar roughness and occasional oscillations, but no stalling. Hope this helps.
