Default Idle And Driving Vibration

Hey guys, I have been searching for an answer to the slight vibration i am having. It seems to be worst when at idle, but I also feel it while driving under 65. I just put new tires on and had all 4 rims straightened back to perfect..... I have had it for 2 weeks it is a 2007 with 105k. I have no idea on the history of maint. done...Do I need a tune up? news plugs? coil packs? motor mounts? etc.... Thanks!!

Welcome to the forum man. Hopefully we can help you out.

Are you throwing any codes? Usually plugs are to be replaced at 100k. Might be a good idea for you.

Is the vibration at idle the same as when you're driving? Search around the threads, see if the topic has been discussed before. Hopefully sone experts will put in their two cents. Good luck dude...

Check yah air filter...i had a similar issue a few weeks back and it turns out my filter was so dirty..the car was having difficulty breathing. A good question was asked before...are you throwing any codes? If yes, have them read...that could lead you straight to your problem. If you are not throwing codes...maybe you do need to get that tune up done. Good luck.

NGK makes the plugs for Nissan so yeah NGK FTW. As Jammax said check the filter first n then take a look at the mounts.

I believe the NGK Lasers are the OEM replacement. There's a good write-up on here on how to replace those.

Otherwise, check your filter like others have suggested. Sounds like the motor is having difficulty aspirating and you probably wouldn't notice that over 65 as normal vibrations would "cancel" out any roughness in the motor.

1.Check your Air Filter
2.Check the motor mounts
3.Check the spark plugs

I would honestly just give the car a tune up. When a spark plug is placed in a car and not gaped correctly it will cause a slight vibration.

Over time the gap gets smaller and smaller, and causes a car to need a "tune-up". NGK is probably the best plug to get since its a factory item, and be sure to look up the gap on them, and gap them correctly.

But like said above an air filter would be a good start, an air filter is a BIG step over (people tend to forget about it ) and people jump to the conclusion that there car needs a tune-up,so if the filter dont work, change the plugs

I think you mean the spark plug gap gets wider as the plugs wear. I agree with the tune-up, and go from there!
