Q: Vibration when changing gears.

asked by on

I feel a vibration when I change gears.

Vibration between shifts in an automatic or manual are pretty similar and are usually caused by loose motor or transmission mounts, but could be mimicked by suspension components. Have a mechanic from YourMechanic inspect your vehicle for any looseness in the driveline and make the necessary repairs.
