Help-another vibration selling tomorrow!!
First, Thanks Thomas for that reverse shudder problem (drivers motor mnt fixed that).
Now I have a rapidly increasing vibration mostly when I have the heat on. it seems as though the vibration happens when the compressor kicks on. However the mechanic put the screwdriver to his ear and various engine locations and said it was the idler pulley or the alternator going bad. I replaced the idler pulley (it is larger then OEM and I checked two stores) But it seems to be worse. The vibration goes away when I aply a left or right hand turn at a stop. this all happens only in drive. I replaced the tension asy this summer and the pwr strg fluid looks dark. Speaking of tension asy, I tried to use a pry bar to take the belt of and all that happens is the bolts turn. please answer as much as pos. I am selling this car tomorrow and want the buyer to be as happy as I am. to bad ( I have had a number of people stand in disbelief when I tell them it is a 97 in awesome cond with 152,000 for $2,500)
