Rumbling Vibration Noise
N+B 2001 Flair Motorhome/2000(yr.) Fiat Ducato (230)
For about a year now I have been chasing a rumbling vibration that occurs at take off from a stop and at speed if I am in lower gears and I excessively accelerate. (mostly noticeable in second but in third too if climbing an incline on the motorway)
I have systematically replaced numerous suspicious characters but I have not found the culprit.
REPLACED or REPAIRED
L + R Top and Bottom Rear Motor Mounts,
New Clutch and Flywheel,
L + R pilot drive shafts and CV (Both completely assembled as single units),
Full Transmission inspection passed with a like-new diagnosis,
and, NEXT, I am headed towards replacing the springy bolts and exhaust fiber gasket on the exhaust assembly just behind the Turbo downpipe.
Does anyone here have or has had this issue??? Any recommendations for rooting out this vibration are appreciated!
