Customer Question

I just had a remanufactured engine, transmission, and transfer case installed in my 2002 Yukon.
I had Alexander's GMC in Oxnard Ca. do all the work. Upon picking up my Yukon I discovered that when the engine is at idle, there is a mild vibration felt throughout the car. This is never been the case on my vehicle since I have owned it. I bought the car certified from them in 2005. This is the second engine replacement since I bought it. Both engines had leaking heads.
Thank you.Jack Kelly

does the shop feel this vibration also ?

it is just at idle ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The shop does but they can't figure it out. There are no codes showing up so they don't think there is a problem. My gut tells me it is something internal in the engine. Maybe a crank shaft out of balance?

that is a tough one to narrow down

off idle it is fine i mean in park off idle its fine ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It vibrates at idle, in park, in drive waiting for a traffic light. Hard to notice at highway speeds.

and they are sure the motor mounts and transmission mounts are not ripped at all and not grounding out so to say on any of those mounts and they are tight ?

They claim to have replace the motor and transmission mounts at the same time.
