I have a 2005 CRV se with about 100,000 miles on it, I bought the car with 70,000 miles on it and shortly after I bought it I noticed a vibration at idle, it can be felt thru the steering wheel and the seat. It does not vibrate while driving, only at idle. It is driving me absolutely crazy to the point where I want to sell the car.
It is not ignition related, plugs have been changed, throttle body cleaned and fuel injectors cleaned, I’m all good in that department.
I thought it had something to do with the motor mounts, while trying to trouble shoot, I sat in the car while it was vibrating and had my mechanic jack up the motor with a floor jack, by doing this we were able to make the vibrations go away only one time, every other time we tried the vibration failed to go away. I ordered a set aftermarket of motor mounts which were total garbage and came out quicker than they went in.
While I had the mounts out I noticed the factory ones seemed to be in perfect shape.
A set of OEM mounts cost around $500, I would have no problem spending the money if I was for sure it would fix the issue. I did change the top transmission mount with an new OEM mount do fix a vibration I had at takeoff from a dead stop.
Ive also disconnected the exhaust to eliminate vibration coming thru hangers or flex joints, didnt change anything.
Some people are try to say its normal for a 4cyl engine to virbate, but my mom has an 06 CRV with about 40k more miles and it idles smooth enough that you cant even tell the car is on, so I know there is something wrong here…..
Any info would be greatly appreciated
