Vibration in the gear stick. Used 2006 Nissan almera 1.5 Petrol with 40K miles on it and i can feel vibration in the gear stick. The car drives well otherwise. What could be causing the vibration in the gear stick? The vibration is noticeable on all speeds. It is not annoying but have me concerned.
How much would i be looking at in terms of repair cost if it is the transmission or engine mount? Is it an expensive job? How long should it take to be replaced ... roughly ...
Does it pose any imminent threat if i delay this for a few days and take the car to the dealer on the weekend? Or would you suggest getting this sorted asap?
Thanks for your input!
Thanks for your continued support, Since speaking to you, i spoke to my car dealer and he suggested that if there is vibration in the steering wheal then it could be front wheels out of balance. I got the wheel balanced and that solved the slight vibration in the steering wheel but the gear stick vibration remains.
I have also noticed that while driving if i press the clutch all the way in, the vibration goes away and when i depress it, it comes back on again. Also, if i take my foot off the gas paddle and then back on again, it feels like the vibration increase and decrease due to which the gear stick can be seen moving slightly.
Nothing wrong with the engine mounts, maybe the slight vibration is normal for this car
