VIBE ISSUE WITH VIBRATION

2003 Pontiac Other

Hello,

I am having a problem with my car. It is a manual transmission 2003 Pontiac Vibe. When it gets to about 2000 RPM in 1st and 2nd gears (not sure about 3-5 since I am not usually at 2000 RPM when I am in those). I get a slight vibration for a moment. It is similar to the vibration you get if you let the clutch out but don't give the car any gas (but less intense). Also there is an odor coming from the car (not strong but if you put your head by the front driver's side wheel well you can smell it) that is kind of like the smell of over worked breaks (like if you rode your breaks).

Does anyone know what the issue is?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks

Sounds like the clutch is ready to go. The vibration is likely the worn clutch, one or more components is worn to the point it is out of balance.
