Re: 1997 Countor Steering Wheel Vibration @ Idle
I have a '96 Contour with the same problem. I already posted a request for help on this forum. I tried to 'tune-up' the engine; replaced plugs, air filter, fuel filter, pvc valve (weekend job), and put some fuel injector cleaner in the fuel tank. This did nothing to help the problem. In my case, the vibration goes down a little when the AC is turned off. I finally gave up and brought the car to a Ford dealer to run 'diagnostics' on the engine. They didn't find anything wrong, but charged me $80.00 anyway. Their explanation was that the motor mounts were 'weak', thus the engine is allowed to shake somewhat. They said they could change the motor mounts for about $500.00, but might not completely fix the problem. I told them no-thanks.
