If it's a severe vibration, expect a bad mount. If it's very slight, that might just be normal operation of the reciprocating engine.

Bad wheel alignment, perhaps balljoints worn out.

There can be several things that will cause your 2003 Chevy Malibu to run rough and not shift into fourth here. The probable cause is a lack of fuel. Due to a bad fuel injector.

It will cause both vibration and a knocking noise The vibration may feel like it is at the rear of of the SUV but be careful to have the drive shaft checked.

Rods and Rocker arms were the problem with my Malibu after changing lifters

You can tell if the transmission, in your 1998 Chevy Malibu, is going bad. If there is a whining or clunking noise. The transmission might cause your engine to install when you are stopped with your foot on the brake.

Check the Malibu crank position sensor and coil pack. One of these is the most likely cause of the loss of fire.

A faulty crank sensor would cause no spark and no fuel.

Vibration does not cause sound, vibration IS sound. Sound is merely how our brains interpret the vibration that comes into our ears.

The most likely cause is a broken wire or blown fuse.

the most probable cause is, there is air in system, bleed brakes

because the engine in that car does not cool down

yes, A vibration with a frequency high enough to cause itching

There are a number of forces that could cause vibration in a ship. Friction for example is a force known to cause vibration.

If the check engine light is illuminated, start with scanning for codes.

Not typically, but running a tire with low pressure can cause damage to the tire, making it dangerous to drive and causing the tire to become out of balance. A front end vibration (sometimes called a shimmy) is typically caused by an out of balance tire.

No drain plug. Filter is located inside the transmission pan on the bottom of the tranny.

The 1999 Chevy Malibu with the 2.4 engine does not use a PVC valve. Instead the system uses an oil/air separator that can clog up and cause the same symptoms.
