front end vibrations on a 05 Dodge Neon Sign In

Hello Friends,

I have a 05 Dodge Neon SE with an automatic transmission and 90,000ish miles.

Lately I have been hearing and feeling vibrations from the front end that seem to lesson after it is driven for a while.

The vibration is heaver when I first start the car than lessons as it warms and stops completely when in reverse.

When stopped at a light, the vibration starts again unless I put it in neutral.

I checked the fluid and it is at the proper level, has a nice red tint and does not smell burnt.

The transmission shifts smoothly in all gears and the car runs well otherwise.

Thnaks in advance for your advice!

Sounds like the symptoms of a failing engine mount.

You were right on point, I was about to replace the CV shafts but I checked the upper and lower torque struts and both were shot. I replaced them and the worst of the vibration went away! There is another mount under the battery tray that I am checking next, but I think it can wait a little bit.

The whole job took about 30 minutes minus the running around to get the parts and tools. Jack stands, floor jack, 18mm and MM wrenches, MM socket for the splash guard and a star drive is all it took.


Thanks for the advice!
