No, car is US specs but I am in Bahrain, middle East country.

Do you believe the misfire is causing your vibration issue ??

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It was but after changing engine and transmission mounts. .No vibration at any stage except 50km(~30miles)Tyres also changed but no difference. Is there any way to test under hood with camera or any other devices

One thing you can try is use a tool called chassis ears this will help you pin point the vibration and if possible a noise while you are driving

Customer reply replied 8 months ago

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

Do you still need help?

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question

Does the problem change with vehicle speed?

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
starts at 50km and reduced 80% after 70km speed

Does throttle application alter the vibration?

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Mechanic did check throttle..Its electric type and no issues with that .
Up to 50km very smooth, starts at 50km to 60 km too high, after that it reduce to low vibration.We thought it was transmission engine mounts.. Recently changed mounts and inspection done with under hood no problems found.
And no engine codes
I'm not asking if there is an electronic throttle control problem. I asked if the vibration is throttle sensitive.
Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
What do you mean by throttle sensitive? How to check?

Do the symptoms change with throttle application?

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No, sometimes I move shifter to N to test issue while car on moving. Still have issue even no acceleration.

That rules out the powertrain then, leaving tires, wheels and hub runout as possibilities.

How to check wheel hub run-out ?

A dial indicator would be used.

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Hi, i just check with mechanic, he lifted car with jack tested wheel hub, no symptoms of wheel issues. And he said issue wi b there always if it's issue with wheels

What was the actual runout measured on each hub flange?

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Not sure, he did check normal, he don't have any tools. He said vibration will b there always if it's hub issue

If he didn't have any tools then he didn't test anything, and the statements that a hub, tire or wheel could not cause your vibration show lack of experience and training.

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
He is doing all German cars for long time, so that I am going there always.Wheel hub or wheel issues will not affect other speeds ? Why only with 50km to 60km?

Most wheel, tire and hub issues don't start producing symptoms until at least 50, the worst being 50-75.

Either this shop isn't able to do the work or they are unwilling to help you at this point if they are telling you these things and that they don't have the tools to diagnose it.

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
They don't have this tool or may not know how to check with diameter,. Can check my self in any simple way?

You can check yourself with a dial indicator by removing the brake calipers and rotors. If the shop does not have a dial indicator and are telling you these things they aren't suited to diagnose the problem. I would recommend seeing a dealer.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Just spoke with one guy in shop, they dont have any tool like this, they just change parts when they have issues, ang he guess it may be little bend on prop shaft but not visible on last examination.

I would recommend seeing your dealer.
