I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you I am a master mechanic with over 10 years experience with various car brands.

Please excuse the waiting time, due to a high number of questions there are currently delays.

What exactly starts to vibrate when you slow down while driving backwards? The steering wheel, the pedals, or the vehicle itself?

Customer: replied 23 days ago.
When i start the car it vibrates and also when i put into reverse, its not the exhaust, gearbox or engine coz i had it checked.

Thank you, ***** ***** a gear is engaged and the car is moving slowly, or just before starting?

Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

Customer: replied 23 days ago.

Its auto when i start the car also parking it vibrates

Okay, thanks a lot.

Since the engine has already been checked, I think, based on your description, that it could be a problem with the clutch or the converter on your automatic transmission. An unintentional power transmission then leads to the described vibrations.

This often occurs when the transmission oil has already aged a little bit. The oil changes its properties with age and is then no longer as stable as fresh oil. However, the transmission is completely electro hydraulically controlled inside. A lower quality of oil has negative effects, such as vibrations, jerking when starting up, ungentle shifting or searching for equipment.

Therefore, the transmission oil should be renewed. In about 90% of the cases this leads to success.

This is completely ok, the requests do not come from me, but the system sends them after a certain time. So no reason to hurry :-)

Have a nice day.

Hi there, transmission fluid has changed, I paid 250 pounds unfortunately still vibrates pls let me know the next step to do thnx

As already mentioned, the workshop should now check the clutch of the car. If the problem persists the gearbox must be removed, the clutch replaced and if the problem persists the gearbox must be replaced.
