It's making a purring noise. While the noise lasts 5 seconds

Customer Question

It's making a purring noise. While the noise lasts 5 seconds or so. My whole car shakes too. Not abruptly, but enough to notice, that it doesn't sound normal. I just got my transmission flushed, hoping that it would cure my problem. Unfortunately, my problem was not resolved.
JA: When was your transmission fluid last checked?
Customer: I just got it changed last Saturday.
JA: What is the model/year of your Nissan?
Customer: 2012
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I do minor things. All the major repairs. I go to professionals. So far the only major work, I've had done, is the transmission flush.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes. Can it be my power steering that's causing the vibration and purring noise. It feels like it's coming from underneath the car. So I assumed it's the transmission. I had the transmission flush because I was told and know that my car was due for one because of my miles.
