Post subject: 94 camry vibration *fixed*
Archived from groups: alt>autos>toyota, others (more info?)

There have been various posts detailing a vibration or wobble on this
generation Camry through a particular speed range. In my case it has
been between 45-55 MPH when accelerating. Many of us have had the tires
changed, balanced, rebalanced, wheels checked for roundness, suspension
parts changed, axles replaced, etc.

This problem first started for me 3-4 years ago and no mechanic has been
able to pinpoint the cause. Finally a stroke of luck has befallen me
and I have discovered the problem and fixed it. In my car the problem
has been the motor mounts. I replaced the one by the radiator when the
engine was rocking back and forth when first starting out. After
replacing it I noticed the dogbone mount was dried out also. That one
was easy to replace.

Since replacements of the mounts, the wobbling sensation has mostly
ceased. If there is any at all, it is around 30 MPH. Perhaps the third
mount is worn or something else, but at this point I am ecstatic. Let
me tell you, it's like driving a new car again. There also seems to be
more power available. Perhaps that's just my imagination, though. The
total cost to repair the two problems was $110. $70 for the big mount
from Advance Auto and $40 for the dogbone from NAPA. A pneumatic impact
wrench and breaker bar is also neccessary.

Thanks for the information. I too have similar problem, but at a higher
speed range.

My question though for the technical people out there, is why does this fix
the problem? If the vibration was at a particular engine rpm, I could
understand it, or if you had replaced the rubber mount under the
transmission, but I find it strange that changing the engine mounts has
fixed the speed range vibration problem.

That query aside, I hope this may also be the solution for my camry
vibrating at 95-105 kph. My engine mounts all 'look' OK, but for that cost,
I think it will be worth a try.

Just an observation in recent days, a similar but smaller vibration appears
to be noticable at slower speed (say 60kph) when accelerating 'hard' around
a left hand corner, but I can't notice it around a right hand corner.

Thanks for the infomation, I will let you all know the outcome (probably in
a couple of weeks time), of new engine mounts on my car.
