Unhappy 2009 non turbo AC small vibrations

Hey yall,

Our non turbo was having serious rough idle when at a stop with the ac on with serious vibrations Id say a 9 out of 10.

We had the radiator fan replaced and dog bone mounts I believe they said.

Now Maybe a year later there is a little idle fluctuation when at a stop with the ac on at a stop with small but felt vibrations maybe 2/3 out of 10.

Any ideas where to start with this.

I appreciate any guidance.

Check the lower dog bone. If the engine wasn't properly aligned with the replacement, it could be torn again.

Although you did change the radiator fan, the wiring harness causes problems where the ground wire gets hot and the result is a loos connection causing the fan to intermittently work. Check for fan operation when at idle during the shaking.
