So I got my wheels balanced and it was not that. I asked the mechanic to inspect it and he found that the drive coming out of the transmission has some play in it. I am 95% confident that is where my vibration is coming from.
The mechanic could grab the drive shaft (close to the tranny) and wiggle it around. It was not horrible but noticable.
The mechanic mentioned that I might be able to take the rear part of the tranny off (because there were some bolts there) and just replace a bearing and seal or what ever else needs to). He recommended I go to a tranny shop.
-Is this possible to replace just the tail end of the tranny?
-Will it do horrible damage to the tranny if I keep driving it?
-How much might this cost? Parts? Labor?
-Could a novice mechanic such as myself do this job?
Thanks for the help.
