    Default Vibration In Civic 1999

    AOA, I own civic 1999 EXi auto...fficeffice" /><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><o:p></o:p>
    When u drive the car with a soft foot means when my car is like in 4th gear at around 40KHP it starts vibrating (To me it feels from the left side) and it continues to do that till almost 65KPH...Below and after this speed the car is perfectly smooth No issues at all.....<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Another important observation if u accelerate the car when it starts to vibrate..the vibration is no more there or if u take it from 0KhP to a higher speed with force hard acceleration...It will not vibrate as well.

    NOTE:
    There is no what so ever vibration in steering<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Things Done:<o:p></o:p>
    1. Axels checked more than 5 time But they are OK (According to Kharadia) <o:p></o:p>
    2. Wheel balancing done many time even the tyres have been change.<o:p></o:p>
    3. Alignment checked 2-3 times<o:p></o:p>
    4. Front brake disks balanced (Tool Lagwaya)<o:p></o:p>
    5. Steering rack checked<o:p></o:p>
    6. All ball joints checked.
    7. Engine mounts checked and repalced one.
    <o:p></o:p>
    The problem is still there do help me out..<o:p></o:p>
    Regards<o:p></o:p>

    u r problem seems to be with the gear box i.e the point where the inner ends of the axle meet the gearbox. see if that can be changed otherwise u have to replace the gear.this is a common problem with front wheel drive vehicles.had the same problem in my corolla.after a lot of time and effort we traced the fault.a replacement kabuli 'box did the job.hope this helps.cheers

    I face the same problem in my city...consulted with my mechanic he said the tyre pressure is not right.i got it checked and he was right...the pressure was 23 PSI instead of 28 psi's.so check tyre pressure and if that's OK then one of ur tyre might have gone d-shaped. bottom line it's not a problem in any mechanical part but it could be with ur tyres and tyre pressure.
    Qaiser Pal,I have not failed.But found 1 of 10,000 ways which doesn't work.....Toyota driver "I couldn't repair my brakes,so i made my horn louder"..When i was born i was so surprised that i didn't talked to one and half year..since light travel faster then sound,people appear bright until you hear them speak..If u can't convince them,confuse them

    Faced a similar problem with my 96 Exi.

    Are you using stock rims and tires or have you changed to bigger alloys?
    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    This is exactly the diagnosis by Honda Cavalry for my ex Civic, remember?

    Apart from this, I tried everything on it. I guess this is the only thing that's left out. Check out how much kabuli transmission would cost from Bilal Ganj.

    The only doubt in my mind is that its an auto - and automatic doesn't get the rough treatment we usually give to manual transmissions, i-e sudden release of clutch after revving the car to 4000 RPM.

    take the car to 50 km/hr and shift the gear to neutral
    note if the vibration is still there or finished and report back
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    So is the axle rod bent? Why didn't they check and confirm it? It can be checked in 5 minutes.
