Default Engine / steering vibration

Hello group,

I have a '93 Camry LE. In the past month or so I've noticed that while
travelling on the highway at 55mph and faster that the steering column
and engine seem to vibrate a lot. If the passenger seat is empty, I've
noticed it also visibly shaking. Naturally I'm a little anxious!

Other than the very basics, I don't know what I'm doing as regards car
maintenance and would appreciate any advice as to what might be causing
the vibrations.

It could be out of round or out of balance tires. Try rotating it to
the back and see if it still happens.

My '96 does a similar thing as the engine is running down in revs, seems to
be most noticeable as revs go thru 2000 or so. Its not a problem,..just one
of those quirks. The engine and transaxle is very well insulated from the
car- body/chassis in other respects.

If the vibration is marked and has a 'wobbling' nature to it,..you may be
looking at road-wheel balance or tire-rim trueness problems.

The engine mounts go bad in these too - believe the redesinged the original
mounts due to vibration. This cause engine to wobble even when sitting at a
stop light. When you shift into neutral at say 60 do you still get the
vibration? If so then it is probably tire balance or a worn CVC joint. If
its when braking then a warped rotor. Swap tires front to rear will spot
light a bent rim or tire thread failure.
