1997 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 220000 miles
in Sept 2008 I replaced my MAF. Ever since then I noticed that my cars steering wheel vibrates when I am stopped at a red light (it begins a few seconds after the car is stopped).
When I a stopped the RPM gauge is just under half way between 0 and 1 (say 0.4)
I have replaced 2 of the 3 motor mts - the front one underneath the grill and upper mt that is underneath the air filter. The other lower mt that is closest to the driver is ok according to my mechanic.
Also, when I am stopped and the steering wheel is vibrating, if I put the car in Park, the vibration stops?
1. Any suggestions on what could be the cause and trouble shooting ideas or tests that could be done?
2. Is there a diagnostic test to run to see if the idle or timing is off?
3. Why would the vibration stop when I put the car in Park?
