I'm currently away at college and will be home in several weeks, so I was going to bring it into my local dealership to have it checked out. The only thing I can think of is that there is possibly a balancing problem with my engine? What do you all think? I've never had a V6 before, my first car was a 65 with a 289HiPo V8, but I have heard that v6 engines are less balanced than an 8 or 4 cylinder because of their geometry, but I don't think something like that could contribute to as great as a vibration as I am feeling. What are y'alls opinions?
It is completely "normal" for it to do that. I have a manual and i can make it do it all the time. Between 2500-3000 RPM if you let off the gas it will vibrate like crazy.
