Default Engine Vibration

Hi

Anyone had engine vibration that would be stronger when engine was started after a longer period of rest?

I had changed my car's engine mount and spark plugs.

But the first engine start(after a weekend, or long night) creates a noticeable vibration. It's ok after driving for a distance and the engine is heated long enough.


Regards

I have fuel pump problems before. Early morning when starting the car, it will jerk back and forth, worse than vibration. Strange thing is after a while the jerking will be gone and car can drive like normal and it does not happen every morning, usually Mondays when the car was not driven as much on Sundays . Finally after about a month, gave a fault code and check engine light. So went ahead to change the faulty part and solved the problem.

For your case, I think need to monitor a while more and see if there is any fault codes, otherwise difficult to troubleshoot and pinpoint what needs to be done

Hi Mypug

Thanks for your advice.
So you replaced the fuel pump?

Do you feel the engine runs smoother, and is less noisy when the petrol tank is full?
