What could cause a light vibration in an old manual transmission car as you accelerate in any gear along with a loud 'clank' as if something hit the undercarriage?
go get a free brake inspection at a local brake shop, and while they have it in the air, ask if they see anything unsafe or worth noting... also ...everyone should have a manual for their vehicle(parts store or dealer), and a local library should have professional shop manuals available in the REFERENCE section for free...make copies of the appropriate sections...read up and good luck :) When you say it's an "old" manual transmission car, is it rear wheel drive by chance? Often a faulty "U-Joint" can cause some occasional "clanking" and if they're getting bad enough they can certainly cause some vibration. Some of the rear wheel drive vehicles also have what's called a "center carrier bearing" which supports the driveshaft. If neither of those seem to be the problem, start checking the suspension parts. Be aware that if it IS the carrier bearing or U-Joints, they can fail in a serious way, causing the driveshaft to fall out while you're going at highway speed. Not a plesant experience.
Could be several reasons and pretty much the same for any vehicle: -Improper replacement -Bad forward universal joint causing vibration at transmission tail -Unbalanced driveshaft causing vibration at transmission tail -Bad transmission mount Universal joints usually "clunk" when bad Unbalanced driveshafts will cause a vibration when driving - the faster the speed the more the vibration
Why would a 2000 Mercury Sable start to have a big vibration at low speed after changing transmission fluid?
When stopped my 2003 Corolla makes a rough vibration. If I shift into neutral the vibration stops. Is this a transmission problem (It's an automatic)?
The term vibration can be used to described a repetitive motion of something like, say, the string of a musical instrument. A string could be said to vibrate at a certain rate. The vibration creates sound at a given number of cycles per second (the rate or frequency of vibration), and this gives the vibration a certain pitch or note.
It supports the transmission and absorbs the vibration of the engine & transmission. Price varies depending on the year, make and model of the car as well as which engine it has and whether it is a manual or automatic transmission. If you call an auto parts store with the information in the above sentence they will be able to quote you a price.
What could cause a vibration at interstate speeds on a 2004 Buick Lesabre after the tires were balanced and new wheels were put on?
Energy or the heat amount can make changes in matter because when particles are heated energy causes the particles to vibrate. Vibration defines weather something is liquid, solid or gas. Lots of vibration makes the particles to spread. So if something starts of solid and is heated it will melt into a liquid and if heated more will turn into a gas from the amount of vibration and energy.
Sound is the perception of changes in pressure in the air. Slow changes of pressure cannot be heard. Once the changes happen faster than 20 times a second, you start to hear sound. Above 16,000 changes per second and it goes beyond human perception. You need air (or any gas) for sound to exist. Sound cannot be heard in a vacuum.
What causes a 1988 Buick Reatta front wheel drive with automatic transmission to have a vibration under the seat only when shifting into third gear?

I am assuming you have an automatic transmission in your 1991 Honda? The 'vibration' you describe is likely due to worn motor mounts/shock absorbers. These Hondas have three different motor mount brackets, each of which has a rubber vibration-isolating bumper in the mounting assembly. I replaced the ones in my 1992 Accord EX (auto transmission) and it definitely solved the problem. It's not as big a problem to fix as it may sound like, but…
If u turn the wheel 2 the right & accelerate hard & hear a loud clickng noise - its BAD DO the same thing turning the wheel 2 the LEFT also & repeat. A constant vibration while driving and the faster you drive the worse the vibration. If grab ahold of the cv shaft and try to shake it, if it moves it is bad
