vibration - prop shaft?

Recommended Posts

very occasionally I get a deep vibe which fills the car - identical to driving on a road which has got ribbed (bit like those brown spraygrip areas) or driving on the warning strip on the edge of a motorway.

The difference is that it immediately stops with a small throttle change. Is there some play which is allowing the prop shaft to resonate perhaps?

You get the same symptoms with a failing toque converter ,

so sure if yours is auto or not but does sound like converted issue ?

I've had a propshaft bearing / rubber go. Noticed a knocking under load and badly vibrating gear stick in 4th gear when I was holiday. A few hours of towing later and it was knocking on the transmission tunnel like it was coming through the floor! Mine's a manual btw,
