I finally got my car fixed rite...after tearing apart my tranny from my motor 4 times my car runs perfectly now. After i had my flywheel turned, pressure plate torqued, and everyfreaking thing done correctly...i thought my car was done. But then i still had a vibration during acceleration which after the 3rd time of pulling the tranny i thought was the flywheel and clutch. "Chatter". I take it to school to do a diagnostic test, found i had a minor misfire in cyl. 3. Correction? Changed my cap and rotor and spark plugs. Runs good now. Took it for a test drive and i still had that same vibration from which i thought would have been corrected from the "tune up". So i discussed it over with my instructor and classmates and kinda eliminate the problem to my right axle which had a dampner on the old one, cuz i just replaced it, but the new one didn't have one cuz im using a gsr axle instead of a si. Well, today i had time so i went to an axle reman shop(only one in NC). I told him i needed a dampner kit for my axle. He tells me that i dont need one and it wont solve my problem. He told me that its the in-board cv joint thats probly bad. I took his word on it, since he knows wat he's talking about. I take my car home tear out the right axle and go to advance auto and trade it for a good one. Well.....got it back on and took it for a test drive. Its fine now! Finallllllly freakingly....done. No more vibration. I kno my story is long but ...u just have to understand how much time i've put into my car in the last 2 weeks.....im just happy its finally done..had to share my story...lol
