Welcome to the CCF! Tell us where you are located.... this type of a problem many times needs someone familiar with the cars to determine that cause.

When you say vibrate..... that could be the engine misfiring.. or ??

How long have you owned the car? Have you been driving it regularly? Has it been running fine?

Did the vibration start suddenly or has increased over time?


Let us know and we can make better suggestions.

Check the generator bushings in the mounting bracket(s).

How tight do you have the Belt? When engine is cold you should be able to slip the generator fan with one finger!

Loose is better!

The rubber bushing is in the lower mount on the left side of the generator.
You should be able to move the generator fan with one finger on a fan blade.

Then loosen the belt.

No need for a prybar when tightening the belt... use your hand ot a long screwdriver
