Car slightly vibrating at when idling

Postby Steve86 » Fri Apr 10, 2015 1:51 pm

Hi guys

Been having this funny feeling of a vibration coming out through the steering when car is idling but the vibration disappears when the car is moving. Anyone with idea what could be the problem.

As always, thank you for your kind assistance..

checked all the bushes? Maybe the steering rack bushes are on the way out

Engine mounts are commonly stuffed in these cars. Worth checking?

No luck yet, checked the steering rack bushes, engine and gearbox mounts and all in perfect working condition.. Also done service a few weeks ago, but still no joy, the vibration still there.

Bit of a guess but maybe pas pump? obviously spins faster when moving and engine speeds up, try revving it in neutral actually that might rule my theory out

Check your crank damper. If there is any way its not balanced it will shake, but like tires can out run balance
