    Engine Shaking / Vibrating – Inspection & Repair in Hamilton

    About engine vibrations:

    The engine mounts are bolted to the engine, holding it in place as you drive.

    If you notice irregular shaking/vibrations coming from your engine, it is definitely worth getting the problem diagnosed by a mechanic. Even though the problem can be something small like dirty spark plugs, it could also be due to serious engine or exhaust damage. 

    Since car engines are so heavy, a vibrating engine can be felt throughout the whole vehicle. It may become more obvious when accelerating, idling or operating in cold weather. Either way, it is important that the problem is correctly diagnosed so that the engine, it’s engine mounts or exhaust system  won’t suffer any permanent damage. 


    Common causes of engine vibration:

    Worn spark plugs – Spark plugs are an important ignition component in your car. If they are old and dirty, your engine may begin to vibrate regularly due to misfires. Engine vibrations can also be caused by faulty spark plug wiring. Spark plugs should be replaced regularly.

    Loose hoses If a hose or connection around the engine comes loose, it can cause the engine to vibrate due to a vacuum leak. 

    Loose cambelt/timing belt – The cambelt may become loose, reducing its ability to keep your engine’s valves running in time. This will cause your engine to vibrate and may lead to serious damage if ignored. Camblelts should be changed every 100,000 km.

    Loose / damaged engine mounts – The engine mounts hold your engine in place, preventing it from shaking as your drive. The engine mounts are constantly under heating and cooling and torque stresses, which can cause them to crack or split over time. This will reduce their effectiveness, and cause the engine to shake.
