Hi,

I've been experiencing shaking in my Passat all the time. It's there at all times. I took it to a couple of mechanics and they couldn't figure out what's wrong with it using software diagnosis. I am not an expert mechanic, so I do not know where to start.

It shake in both driving and idling. It does not matter where or how I drive. It always shaking. No high wind.

Pop the hood and start the engine. Look closely, if the engine is vibrating unusually (like.... a lot), flipsauce guessed it right.

If not, have you made or noticed any changes to your exhaust lately?

Mine shakes when it is in drive, but stopped. I cleaned out the throttle body and it took away about 80% of the shaking away. It's quick, and easy!

No changes to exhaust.
Engine mounts? Are these rubber spacers the engine rests on. The car is fairly new, B5 2000 38K 1.8T. I will try and clean the throttle body and see how goes. Anymore suggestions?
