I live in northern michigan. Around the Traverse city area.
just a few more symptoms I noticed today while driving. the vibration at idle only seems to be once the car has warmed up and the idle has settled. Also, placing the car into gear seems to be a bit rougher than what it should be. Almost a clunk, but not really that bad. I also hear and feel the same slight clunk when getting back into the gas. Ive noticed other cars do this, but this seems to be a bit more than it should.
oh yeah. there is one more thing that i changed. I changed the transmission filter and fluid. the fliter looked ok. I took it apart and didnt find any signs of wear. the fluid was fairly dark, but did not feel gritty. again, this was after the vibration existed.
whats the normal idle for this car? I was thinking maybe my idle is too low. Mine when warm idles around 700 rpm. around 550 when in gear.
