a new vibration. any idea whats wrong?
i have a problem with my 2004 wrangler. im a bit worried as i have never felt this before.
when i go above about 3000 revs in any gear i get what feels like engine rumble. it is constant but a few days ago it stopped for about an hour and then it started again. in the past i have had problems with the drive shaft and joints becoming worn and bent, but this time it is a completely different type of vibration. its also not the vibration that you get from having unbalanced wheels.
i havnt been to a garage yet as i live in a country where unless you tell them what to fix all they do is give you a bill for nothing. so i thought id check here first.
does anyone have any idea of what this problem is.

thanks for any help.

it feels like an engine problem. and yes, it does it while in neutral as well.

well either ur harmonic balencer is out of whack or ur engine is missing have u ever changed the plugs and wires and what not to make sure it in top notch shape and see if that helps if not then take a look at ur pulleys while the motor is running if the bottom most pulley seems to wobble then the harmonic balencer is screwed up if that appears fine check motor mounts for wear let us know what u find
