1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet QuestionsEngine runs fine, a slight vibration inside at idle, increases under load (1 answer)
The vibration is felt in steering wheel seats and floorboard. When under load vibration increases, at cruise on level in city and over 40 the vibration ceases. No real noise is evident. Think it might be the torque converter??

I have to keep giving it gas then it shuts off then I have to do it over until it runs on its own. Once started it will keep started unless I leave it over 4 hours then I have to do it all over again
