I have a 2001 Toyota Camry
with the four-cylinder engine
. It has been rebuilt but the engine seems to have a lot of vibration at about 1800 RPMs. I am questioning if the balance shaft has been installed right. It had a little vibration before it was rebuilt, but nothing like it has now.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes I would have no trouble getting the whole pan off. And I have had to time and balance shafts before but never on a Toyota Camry.
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: The motor mounts have all been replaced. And I made sure that they were all tight and in print position. The one on the automatic transmission looks like it could be a little misaligned but it fits only one way.
JA: Is there anything else the Toyota Mechanic should be aware of about your Toyota?
Customer: It is an automatic and has about 150,000 miles on it. All the vibration seems to involve slow speed and idle.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer where you can place your fully refundable $5 deposit (plus $15 after the Toyota Mechanic responds). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.
