Vibration Feeling From Engine is Making the Whole Car Vibrate???

I need help finding an issue with my Estima 2000 model ACR30 with 2.4L Petrol 2AZ-FE engine Automatic Front Wheel Drive (2WD). It's got a vibration issue. The engine vibrates back & forward a lot especially when in drive or reverse and it gets worse when I turn on the Air Condition... I have checked & changed most rubbers & bushes and replaced four brand new engine mounts check the all the engine frames, checked the tension belt... Please if you can help me or help me by posting this up on the forum... Thank you Sorry, forgot to mention. I also replaced steering bushes... The vibration happens when I'm in drive and I accelerate the revs around 1100-1400rpm, that's when I feel the vibration and the whole car vibrate... It's very hard to explain. I don't feel the vibration when the car starts doing 20km/h or more in speed, So when I'm driving the car normal don't feel the vibration... It's only when I come to a stop or turning slow turns like a roundabout... I had the car for one year now, since i got it I have done major service on it... I have put brand new spark plugs not long ago and checked the coil packs, This car doesn't come with leads. No Misfire. The car is Automatic Front wheel drive, The rev is normal at 750rpm & about 650rpm with aircon on. I have also put four brand new tires & machined the disc and put original toyota break pads... All four engine mounts done, Steering bushes done, D bushes done, Check all other rubbers & bushes all good... The feeling is driving me crazy, very hard to explain... It does away when i reach 20>kms in speed, Its just when i need to take off, you feel the vibration then it does away when its about to kick into second gear...??? The aircon just makes it increase in vibration... Someone has suggest to get my gearbox check??? Any Ideas, Please Help... Thanks

There is a harmonic balancer on the engine. IT is mounted to the crank shaft. That is the problem.

    Checked the Harmonic Balancer, Looks Good...

  • Brad Brown Nov 21, 2014

    Check the engine vibration by revving it up in park and see if the vibration occurs. The other thing that can cause this would be wheel bearings. You can test this by raising the wheels off the ground and checking the play. Or you can put it in drive. However you need to know that you cannot check a harmonic balancer by sight.

    We checked the wheel hub & bearings when I changed four new tires and break pads...

    With the Harmonic balancer, what's the best way to check it...

  • Sydney Best
    Sydney Best Nov 21, 2014

    when car is in Part or Neutral. It's fine no vibration. Its only in drive or reverse the car vibrates.

  • Brad Brown Nov 21, 2014

    The harmonic balancer is just replaced without any tests if you believe that it is the problem. If you turn a tight circle to the right and then to the left, does it make any noises.

  • Brad Brown Nov 21, 2014

    This might be a torque converter if it is an automatic.

  • Sydney Best
    Sydney Best Nov 21, 2014

    Yes, its an automatic front wheel drive...

  • Sydney Best
    Sydney Best Nov 21, 2014

    Only when I turn Right, I can feel the vibration but not left turns...If i turn right then left turn no noise???

  • Brad Brown Nov 21, 2014

    Check the CV joints.

  • Sydney Best
    Sydney Best Nov 24, 2014

    I got two Transmission Specialist to have a look at the car and both ruled out a gearbox problem... Which is Good News.

  • Sydney Best
    Sydney Best Nov 24, 2014

    But, One said it's a Harmonic Balancer and the other said it's an engine mount issue (more of the front mount)... ???

  • Sydney Best
    Sydney Best Nov 24, 2014

    CV Joints were also checked and all good...

  • Brad Brown Nov 28, 2014

    i recall you saying that the wheels made a noise when you turned tight circles. That is a CV joint making that noise. You posted that it makes the shudder in a round about. That is also a tight turning radious.
