5 Causes Of Car Engine Vibration

Car engine vibration could be the result of a number of problems. Though it is assumed that the vibration is originated from the engine, in reality it is from the axles. If you are driving an used car, the problem probably occurs more frequently and here is the time to know more about its common causes and find out solutions. Here we discuss in detail 5 causes of engine vibration. Read them carefully to see if you are experiencing one of the symptoms that is causing car engine vibration.

The Crankshaft Damper

The crankshaft damper can be a factor to consider when diagnosing engine vibration causes. Indeed, the main duty of this component is to decrease vibration. In diesel engines, its use is more extensive. If there is a chance that it is defected or has stopped working for good, the engine vibration is likely to be felt heavily. You should contact a mechanic whenever you face this problem.

Faulty Engine Mount

Faulty engine amount is another cause of engine vibration

This is another cause of engine vibration. This component keeps the engine attached to the chassis. Besides, it also reduces the vibration of a running engine. This part doesn’t just get damaged. Reckless driving can be the reason behind it. Similarly, you should see a mechanic to mend your car.

Spark Plug Issues

Spark plug might be damaged and need to be removed

If there is a problem with your vehicle’s spark plugs, then the engine can vibrate more than usual. Spark plug removal can be done at home if you have all the tools and knowledge to accomplish the task.

Extreme Weather

In a frosty weather, the engine vibrates more than what is normal. No extra measures need to be taken if this problem solves on its own when the car is being driven in normal weather. In a cold weather, the engine cannot run on its optimum level, so vibration increases.

Car Axle should be the reason which the vibration comes from.

Oftentimes it seems like the engine vibration problem is rooted in the engine itself, whereas in reality, it is the axles that need to be taken care of. When your car is in a collision, the axles can be damaged, even when there is no apparent sign of damage. So, you should get a mechanic involved if you are experiencing increased vibration, right after a collision.

These are some of the common engine vibration problems that might be plaguing your driving experience. So, you should be looking out for one of these 5 causes of engine vibration and find out what’s the exact reason.

      first check the oil level,check if the water pump is functioning and if you are warm countries like kenya thermostat is the main cause

    I took my car to a mechanic so that we could replace casket and rings as my car was smoking so much.This of course involved opening the entire engine. Once everything was replaced I started experiencing those vibrations I took the car back and looked the plugs but since then my car has never been the same more so in the morning when I start the engine but when the engines runs for some minutes the vibrations end. What could be the cause of this vibration. Thanks for your advices.
