Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help with this today.I apologize for any delay.

If this vibration occurs at idle or revving up engine and when driving this may be an issue with a worn or damaged engine or transmission mount causing this needing replaced.I have also seen exhaust heat shields cause this as well if they are bent and contacting the body or vehicle frame or engine and transmission as this transmits the vibration up into the inside of the vehicle like this here.

If these were not checked over to see if any of these need replaced or re shaped this needs done.

If these were checked and found o.k. already my next step would be to have the drive lines/axles checked to see if any are out of balance needing re balanced or if severe balance issues are found with any of them the affected component would need replaced.

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.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
