I have a 2001 Honda Civic LX 1.7L Manual transaxle car. It has 58000 miles on it. It makes a vibration at around 2000 RPM whether it is in gear or in neutral. I thought it was a broken engine mount and there was one but the noise persists. I know that since it is a 4-cylinder it vibrates more than a six or eight cylinder engine could it just be that? I don't really know what else the problem could be since a friend of mine has the same model year mileage only is EX and automatic does not make that noise? : (
First of all the manual and automatic would not be a good comparison. Also, are the engines the same. Let's talk about your car and is it the engine running rough, what are the RPM's showing. Does the tach move up and down. Is the sound metallic in nature like it could be a heat shield on the exhaust system?

Engine runs pretty smooth RPM's climb up and down smoothly just like any other car. So yes the tach moves up and down. The sound not really metallic more like, well it sounds like a normal engine going up to about 1800 RPM then it sounds like it gets deeper and vibrates more until about 2100 RPM more persistent in the low end of gears rather than the high end of the gears. And thats what I thought the problem was to so I must take it to dealer and double check. Thanks for the reply.
