Since i bought my truck last summer it's been vibrating whenever I idle. It happens whether or not the AC is on. I can tell that its the engine that is vibrating. The RPM's usually dont change when I idle. An example of the vibrating starting would be once i come to a complete stop at a red light.
I took it to my mechanic and he said I need motor mounts!?
Does this sound right? I just want my engine to puur and stop vibrating.
Anyone have similar problems?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
And there's a TSB for the intake rattle (where the conduit passes into the front right fender). Mine used to rattle every morning as I backed out of the driveway... (I think the TSB refers specifically to a rattle when in reverse)... But, heck, if the conduit fits loosely and is prone to rattle - what difference does it make if it rattle in reverse or at idle.
I had mine changed to the new part and my rattle is gone...:thumbsup:
Just another idea...
But if you're talking about vibration instead of rattle (now that I re-read the thread) - this might just be off the mark.
^ intake tsb through the fender is not a cause for engine vibration. plus, i have the urd tcai. so you can definitely eliminate that.
it was colvilletacoma who had his motor mounts replaced. i checked mine when he first posted that thread. i've had the truck in the air several times and have checked every time. nothing. my father/mechanic said he saw nothing wrong with them either. idk, maybe i have to check again, but the truck as always done this.
Looks like griffin407c and I have the same problem. My truck also only vibrates when im in gear, never when im in park. Just like griffin, I dont have any lights coming on in the dash. I guess i'll just get the motor mounts and see what happens. Thanks for all your inputs. Hopefully its nothing serious.
My 6 spd 2008 didn't do it when I first got it, but about a month or two ago (about 20,000 miles) I started noticing what I would call a slightly rough idle at stop lights. So if any body figures this out I would love to know... I'll try new plugs at 30 maybe that'll do it.
