When I start off in 1st gear the car starts to vibrate slightly and if the rpms get too high there is a thumping sound(it feels like it is right under my feet). It will do this in 2nd or 3rd also but the vibration and the thumping seems to go away when i get to around 45 mph. Any ideas?
sounds like the transmission or the driveline mounts...it could be any number of thengs within the driveline..but judging by the fact its only in certain gears...check the tranny oil!!! change it ASAP if you havent yet...
