asked by on

My car has 29000 miles.

Hello. If the engine is running a little rough after all of this work was done it can be something as small as a vacuum leak or it can be caused by a valve seat that was not installed correctly. I usually do a compression test just to make sure that all of the repairs were done correctly. If they were then I do a smoke test of the intake to see if there are any vacuum leaks. If not then the vehicle may just need to be driven for a while or it may have some bad gas. If you want to have this vibration checked, consider having a YourMechanic certified technician come to your home or office to diagnose what is causing the vibration.
