    Default Vibrations on floor of Vitz 2010 1L.

    Hi

    I have a JDM Vitz, 2010 model, 1L, which I bought almost six months ago. It was driven 63000km outside Pakistan, confirmed via an official auction sheet. I've driven it over 6000km now. I have changed oils only twice in this duration. The first time, a certain 0w Shell oil was used (the dealer serviced it for me initially). The next time, I used Zic 0w. The car has been running fine so far. I put on new Dunlop SP Sports 703 tyres as well when I bought it. On the second service, I got air filter, oil filter and cabin filter replaced with second copies one from a Caltex service station.

    However, since winters started, I have started feeling a vibration on the "floor" of the car. I can feel it on my feet. It's not on steering wheel or anything, but on the feet. I am trying to find out what may be causing that. It feels as though I can feel the road on my feet when I'm trying. It's not there all the time. There are times when the car is running very smoothly and I don't feel it, but other times I can feel it very much.

    The car overall vibrates once in a while in idle. I was reading an English manual for 2010 Yariz, and it said that the car may vibrate for a bit in idle, which is normal. So, I've overlooked that. But I don't know the reason why I feel the vibrations on the floor. The tyre pressure is fine too.

    What do you think could be the reason?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Cheers,
    Ayaz

    It's a three cylinder engine it's completely normal since it's an unstable design.Try mixing a bit of high octane 1/3 with petrol to improve things.

    Check the exhaust- Sit in the car when it is idle and listen/feel the vibrations.
    Then step out of the car and follow procedure. I drove over a dog once and my exhaust got damaged. Used to vibrate like hell after that with me sitting inside. Got it fixed for 700 rupees. The Mechanic straightened it by heating it up and twisting it.

    Do let us know though
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.
