here is the question i have been bugged about on one of my cars. i have a bad vibration in the drive train, i checked the rear end and all is well in that department, i put new tires and wheels on it still have the vibration, i replaced the drive shaft and still a vibrations, motor at idle does not have vibration but when going down the road at around 1800- 3500 rpm there is a very bad vibration, once i got the vibration to quit by getting in and out of the throttle. but eventually it started back. do anyone have any suggestions on what it might be?
Maybe harmonic balancer is slipping changing the balance on the crankshaft.
if this is so wouldnt the timing mark be out? because i thought i looked at that....and the timeing had not changed.
the only other things i could think of that would cause a vibration would be flywheel, or torque converter. unless your crank cracked. There was one guy that had a bad vibration and after looking high and low for it decided to drop the oil pan and look into the bottem end, and tried to move the crank around and noticed something didn't look right, so he pulled one of the bearing caps and the crank had snapped right behind the cap.

My trans guy changed the trans mount and adjusted the pinion angle.
Got rid of 90 percent of my vibation. After changing the mount my fan rubbed the shroud on both of my cars. MB

iv narrowed it down as far as i know and it has got to be the torque convertor or the the fly wheel.....iv checked all the above and all is good there.. maybe i can get some time soon and pull the tranny to check convertor and or the flywheel.. thanks for all the advise guys......oh by the way ill let everyone know what i find when i find it to close out the question for future users on here
akherber to answer your question it does the vibration in gear or out does not matter......but always at the same rpm range
