Shaking all over! What should I try?

2 posts in this topic

Car is a 1983 626 LX coupe 2.0. While I'm stopped at a light, the steering column vibrates a lot, as does the engine hood. Engine doesn't sound rough, idle doesn't seem high.

Is this normal? Is there anything I should check which would normally damper the vibration (like engine mounts)? Thanks for any advice. :)

Hard to tell exactly what the problem is from this description but my advice is to take your own advice and check the engine mounts. Take a big bar if you have one and try to move the engine around. If you can budge it by more than a couple of inches with minimal effort with the car off then that is the problem. If not then it might be the harmonic balancer which is hard to check for without shop grade tools.
