Q: Hatchback has vibrations with no ECU errors

asked by on

There is a bit of a vibration that started this week. When driving, it doesn’t get any worse. The vibration seems to always stay the same. There hasn’t been any slipping and there are no strange or odd noises - no thumping. There are no ECU errors. The car has a ‘loose’ feel to it. An auto shop told me it could be the clutch or flywheel. What do you think is the problem?
