1997 magna transmission vibration at 80k

I have a 1997 magna with auto transmission and have a terrible vibration at about 55Kmph and 75 kmph. I always experianced a little push from the transmission at 55Kmph (just before changing to 4th gear) and about 75 kmph. These were not like usual gear shifts but engine rev goes down with a little smooth pushing to the car. I always expereianed this without any vibrations before. Recently I did not use the car for few weeks and when started to use I get this terible vibration ( the whole car started to vibrate) at the same above speeds. I feel like it is something to do with this smooth pushing effect I had earliar: Whatever the mechnism in the trasmission system that used to give this smooth pull is going back and forth, resalting a teribble vibration! It has done 165km. Would a transmission oil change fix the problem?

First check your transmission fluid level before doing any test. Make certain this is not a speed vibration from the wheels by shifting the lever into 2 instead of D and reaching the speed you are having vibration at (as long as it is safe and you are not over reving the engine). While at that speed shift into D and let the transmission go into it's normal gear ranges and take note if the vibration occurs. I've seen (felt) this type of vibration many times on vehicles where the fluid is low. Adding fluid to the proper level solved this issue on some but on others there was existing transmission wear that this would not help. This doesn't mean the entire transmission is bad as the valve body inside the transmission fluid pan can sometimes cause this. Swapping out the valve body can be pricey but not as pricey as a new transmission and sometimes cheaper then having a used transmission installed.

SOURCE: 94Metro Has a bad vibration at idle, gets worse in gear stopped

check all motor mounts first. if they are ok then check to make sure all cylenders are firing. try pulling one plug wire off the spark plug and see if the engine changes sound or anything. if it does, put the wire right back on then move to the next one and repete. if you pull one and it does not change then that plug is not firing. could be caused by a crack in the porcelian in the plug or bad plug wire connection or bad wire

SOURCE: bad vibration engine trans under load

seems your problem is within your clutch,defective part,usually a defective release bearing will cause gear shifter and pedal vibration but not as bad as yours,but by pressing on clutch pedal vibration stops,point to clutch!

SOURCE: I waited too long to get my oil changed, and while

Was your Pontiac real low on oil, or it just had been a long time since it was changed? I don't think putting off the oil change was the problem, unless you had little or no oil in the engine. Bring it to a parts store to see why the check engine light is on. They can plug a hand held scan tool to the cars diagnostic port under the dash, and 'pull' codes from the cars computer to see why it's running bad. This is a free service at most stores. They can give you advice on what's wrong, and what to do to fix it. Write down the codes, and post them here if you have any further questions. Get this checked asap. Good luck, and let me know what you find.

I'm just a novice in these matters, but my td5 auto developed the same sort of symptoms and it was a front wheel bearing. Jack each wheel up individualy and give em a good rattle. If theres any give that might be your problem.

I have a magna 1997 when it is hot and i turn it off it will not start again a

That is a TE magna 3rd gen either a 3 .3,5 ltr motor .. . I take it it will crank over ok so either fuel or spark
Is this an Auto , triptronic or manual box ?..is it running on gas ? .These no starting problems require a scanner to sort out if intermittent or unresolved ... . for now try these basic things .
For Fuel .check if the fuel filter has been changed and the fuel pump is working when hot There is a pressure regulator on the fuel rail . injectors cleaned ? For Spark -dissy. coil ..exciter. leads .plugs any of these can fail when hot .. I am in several Magna forums so should be able to sort this

Hi were do I pour the transmission oil for my mitsubishi V6 Magna 1997

There should be a dip stick where you pull it out to check your fluid level of the automatic transmission. You check it while the car is running and in park and warmed up. To put transmission fluid in, you would get a funnel to fit the opening of the dipstick hole. First take out dipstick, place funnel into the hole and pour the fluid into the funnel. Depending how low your level is, it will not take a lot to bring the level back up to normal. Pour some in and check level. DO NOT OVER FILL!

I own a 98 Model Toyota Camry, and when its on Reverse gear it sounds ok but on Auto drive, the engine and in fact the entire car starts vibrating terribly....What should i look out for here?

You need to check the engine and transmission mounts. Have someone sit in the vehicle, and with the engine running get them to put in into reverse, then into drive with their foot on the brake. If the engine rocks quite noticeably there is a broken/worn engine/transmission mount

I have a 1997 Mazda mpv that vibrates on the highway. It drives fine in the city but as soon as you go over 80k it vibrates and I have had the tires balanced and the rear drive shaft balanced and it still...

if you jack it up both ends off the ground,using axle stands to support it,then start it,put in gear and take it up to the vibrate point.you can get someone to carefully look underneath,and at the wheels,to see if any thing vibrating.DONT REV IT TOO MUCH.it might fall off the stands
