Question about Jeep 2004 Grand Cherokee Laredo

1 Answer

Vibration and engine smells

Recently one morning when the engine started, the car started vibrating/shaking and smelled of burning gas or something. since it was out of gas and maybe due to cold weather, i thought to fill the gas and i should be fine. the problem is still there even after i filled half tank. Anyone know whats going on? it is a 8cylinder car. My mom used to be the prior owner of the car. She has mistakenly driven the car in gear 1 or 2 instead of Drive few times.

While driving approx. 25 mph, bang and vibration like a flat tire quickly followed by horrible rotten egg smell. started stalling out and vibrating very hard couldn't get over 40 mph.


It sounds like a plugged catalytic converter. It's kind of like a muffler type thing on your exhaust system. It burns all the unburned fuel that your engine sends through the exhaust for emission control. After a while they can get plugged up & need to be replaced. It's not letting exhaust out so it's choking your engine.=vibration, smell & backfire. You might be able to limp it to a service garage.. Save yourself a tow charge. Good luck

2001 Chevy impala started the night before morning it started running rough died it would ed start fuel pump ok try starting it Nothing but smell gas what could be wrong?


if your smelling gas then it sounds like an ignition problem or timing, could be something in the distributor, coil, or plugs worn out. if this has the corvette motor in it with the distributor mounted at the front of the motor behind the water pump they are known for distributor problems.

I have a jeep cherokee limited and sometimes when I got to start it, it shakes a little and then I get a burnt smell from the engine


check that the smell is not from the o2sensor wires burning on the exhaust system. This will also give other problem indications.

Car vibration and fuel like smell


I would guess that one or more of the spark plugs, or spark plug (high tension leads) have failed. That would cause the engine to run uneven , off balance,and create fuel vapours due to unburned fuel.

Worse case scenario it could be leak on fuel injectors or fuel line, if possible have some turn engine over with hood open, if you can see or smell fresh fuel, get professional assistance as this is a extreme fire hazard.

I'm getting a growling noise,seem to be associated with drive train.No vibration,just noise.Dos the transmission fluid need to be drained and replaced?


Firstly check the level of transmission fluid. Then check the color and smell. It should not be black and smell like something burned.

Steering wheel vibration at speeds above 50mph


this could be a few things. if the odor was of rotton eggs...it's either a broken/loose motor mount that shakes the exhaust system causing the catalyitic converter to make that smell, or, in a worse case, its your transmission overheating and burning up ATF (automatic transmission fluid) and this is causing the torque converter plates to rotate out of harmony with each other causing the vibration. if the smell is more a burnt rubber, it's much more likely you have a timing issue or a worn main bearing on your crankshaft. this causes vibration and wear on the belts causing them to "burn" or emit that burnout smell. either way, take it to your mechanic right away because none of these problems will end well if left unattended. good luck!

Kenmore series 90 washing machine clunking and burning smell


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.26902691

See the section on the Machine Base.

There are a number of balance springs and vibration pads that help keep the tub from vibrating and going out of balance.

It's possible that one or more of these is broken, loose or damaged.

Following is a description of how to remove the cabinet to get access to them.

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for their direct drive washers.

For the vibration, I'd check the springs and vibration pads.

While you have the cabinet off, I'd pull the pump and motor and check the Motor Coupler. This could be the cause of the "burning smell"

95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??


The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.

Engine shaking in the morning


Try getting your tire balaced as you ight have a tire that has seperated from the inner wall, as it sits overnight it will cool down then when you drive it the rubber sofens and the vibration will improve. I have had water in the tire too but i don't think thats your problem.
hope this helps.
