2004 Kia Sorento vibrates?

Asked by May 11, 2010 at 03:10 PM about the 2004 Kia Sorento

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We just got the timing belts and alternator belts changed in our 2004 Kia Sorento with 104K miles on it. My wife just noticed that the car vibrates when started and continues when driving. The mechanic's say it is spark plugs.. However, there are many posts that have said it could be drive shaft or tires.... Can anyone give me some guidance on this?

take a look at your engine mounts,if they are made of rubber,they may need to be replaced or falling apart causing your viberation.

IT'S THE TIMING BELT THE DIDN'T BALANCE IT. IT HAPPENRD TO ME ON A 1998 GALLANT

Check your driveshaft , we just had to buy one it is a common problem with them . The driveshaft is a 2 piece and the center link wears out. It started out as a off/on vibration , felt like the wheel was an egg when rolling . New driveshafts cost $750. Used are $350 ( but keep in mind you could be buying a wore out one or one going bad )
