Toyota Camry Annoying vibration while stopped and in Drive.
Toyota Camry Problem
Average Mileage: 146,606 mi (120,000 mi - 173,500 mi)
After much research and replacing all the motor & transmission mounts I discovered the solution. "Exhaust Hanger Replacement." Wait till you see what Toyota is charging for these little babies. Essentially there are 5 hangers. Front, mid and front muffler hangers are all permanently attached to spindles and a small metal hanging chassis. Replacement is easy and can be done with just a socket wrench. The local dealer here charges $63 a piece (without installation) and $12 for the rear muffler hanger. If you could just replace the rubber the entire job would cost less than $10...But No!! By just replacing the mid and front hanger I eliminated 60% of the annoying vibration. After replacing the remaining 3 I had a brand new 95 Camry.
Ok, was told muffler needed to be fixed. Car makes a(not obnoxious) clunk sound when I go over speed bumps slowly.
I noticed this on my vehicle. If I shift to neutral, the vibration decreases. Articles on the Internet recommended a Top Engine Cleaning service which my dealer says they don't do anymore.
I had this problem on my 1996 Geo Prism (Corolla).
