My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Unfortunately I dont know of anyone myself in your area that can diagnose or repair this model here.You might check with local repair facilities to see if they can look into and repair this here or if they know of anyone that can do this.

This may be an issue with a worn or broken engine or transmission mount.If the mounts have not been inspected this needs done to see if this is the case here needing repaired.

If these are o.k. this can be a fault in the transmission itself with it needing removed and taken apart for inspection and repair.I have seen worn/damaged components inside the transmission cause this issue here needing replaced to correct this fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
