I have a 2009 tribute and it has a steering wheel vibration…

I have a 2009...

I have a 2009 tribute and it has a steering wheel vibration very noticable when stopped and idleing

Mechanic's Assistant: How often does the vibration occur, and when did you last have the tires balanced?

All the time when idleing, tires were ballanced in nove when i got new tires

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tribute yourself? What have you tried so far?

I do not.. i go to a local garage

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Oh i have a pin hole oil leak does not affect oil pressure just annoying is there any fix to that without removing the whole engine?

This would mean you have a problem with engine mounts. What engine do you have? Thanks.

i have a v6

There are 3 mounts. it is about 2 hour labor and around $250 for the parts so you are looking at around $400-$500 total for repair to be done at a shop. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have any questions, thanks.
