Help Needed: Suzuki Swift shaking when engine is both cool and warm!

Heya, 

I have an automatic 2008 Suzuki Swift and recently it's been shaking/vibrating/juddering quite noticeably when the engine is turned on (whether it's cool or warm). I've always waited for the engine to warm up for a few minutes before driving it, so I really don't know what's going on. I've also noticed that when I put the windows down, the sound of the engine when accelerating is quite unsettling, sounds like a long and loud dry wheeze, I can't really describe it. It just sounds really unhealthy. I also remember one time when the accelerator just stopped working while I was driving (felt like it ran out of gas but I had just filled it) before any of this vibration stuff started, so I pulled over, waited, and then it started working as normal again.

I literally have no clue what I'm talking about when it comes to mechanical terms and all that jazz, I just thought I'd come here to ask what's actually wrong with it before taking it to a mechanic. My dad knows quite a lot about cars but he isn't here at the moment so I thought I'd come here to get some helpful info to pass on to him.

I read somewhere that it could be something to do with the cylinders; if it is I can give some more information later on, but for the moment I'm just looking for what this issue could possibly be.

Thanks in advance!

Melina

When did you last do a tune-up? When was the air filter changed? What's the current mileage of the car?

Members can't delete topics. Only moderators and admins can. I have informed them and they will delete the duplicate thread.

The car was serviced around 2 months ago, so that includes the tune-up/air-filter. It's just north of 95k . Thanks for informing them about the other post!

For the vibration/wobbly engine, get the engine mounts checked out.

It's difficult to diagnose noises without seeing and listening to it. It could be a worn out bearing in a pulley, to a failing water pump. Share a video if possible.
