seek advice/help

Post by salamander162 » Sun Jan 10, 2021 9:41 pm

hi guys

i have 3 problems with my 2004 vibe gt

1.- when i start in the mornings it rev up up to 3000 rpm, and when is hot stays at 2000 rpm, sometime when i stop stays at 3000 need to hit the pedal to bring it back to 2000

2.- have rumbling noise when i accelerate, the faster the louder it gets, check engine no noise form it

3 .-when i hit 75-80 mph it starts to vibrate, stops when it pases 80 mph

i tried : cleaning the throttle body, replace the pcv valve, rotate balance tires and check struts no luck

thanks in advance for any help

The rumbling noise may be a bad wheel bearing. Very common on these cars.
