Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** the check engine light on? No vibration before motor mounts were installed?
Your paying for a conversation with me, not really a "answer". For me to give you a good answer I need to ask some questions, I hope your not upset.
If there was a engine problem it would cause a misfire which would turn on the check engine light. Did you have any vibration problems before installing new motor mounts? Thanks.
No more money will be requested, it seems like your upset with me when we just started talking. Would you like me to open question up for someone else to help? I do not want you to be upset with me. Thanks.
Ok, thanks and sorry about all the questions. I just want to make sure I have all the information needed to give the most accurate opinion. Is vibration worse in park, drive, or while driving down the road? Thanks.
Does idle seem to be sitting a little lower then normal?
RPM should be around 800 rpm on gauge while at a stop. Does it stay around 800 rpm or is it lower? Thanks.
These vehicles are not known for engine mount failure or vibration problems. The most common cause of vibration on these vehicles is worn axles but that would only cause vibration while driving. If your only getting vibration at a stop then I believe your new motor mounts are the problem. If you put a jack under engine and lift it up a little to take some of pressure off mounts the vibration should stop, if vibration stops you know problem is mount related. Turning on the AC puts more load on engine which would cause a bad mount to show up more, same with putting it in drive. So at this point I'd bring vehicle to a new shop and let them know you think problem is related to new mounts since problem started right after having them installed. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
I'd bring to a different shop since current shop feels problem is engine related. I think replacing the new mounts is probably going to be required, sometimes aftermarket parts do not work as well. Let me know how it goes or if you run into more questions. If it was a internal engine problem vehicle would have a loss of power, a lot of noises, and check engine light.
Sometimes low idle can cause vibration so I'd also recommend cleaning the throttle body out which can cause low idle problems. Let me know how it goes or if you run into more questions. Thanks.
The flywheel is possible but wouldn't likely start immediately after replacing mounts. Throttle body cleaning is something you can do within 15 minutes. Let me know how it turns out or if you have questions. Thanks
If problem started immediately after replacing motor mounts I'd suspect there was a problem with the replacement mounts and I'd have them replaced again with OEM mounts. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions. Thanks.
