      i10 Car Cabin Vibrating & Shaking

      This morning when I cranked up my car engine car, it suddenly started shaking up and the whole cabin was vibrating a lot (on neutral gear). I thought to move it a bit but after putting on top gear the vibration reduced a bit but driving few 10-15 mtrs it was still vibrating, so I parked it as it is. And as soon I stopped and switched to neutral the vibration increased.

      I Checked the engine oil level, it was fine, but don't know the cause .

      It is i10 Sportz, 5.5 years old, done 35k KMs till now regularly serviced and faced no issues till now.

      Any clues or troubleshooting steps I can do?

      Or should I drive it to nearest car mechanic or service center?

      I am just taking a wild guess here. May be the crank shaft or the flywheel has become loose

      Does this mean, on revving the vibrations go away and it happens only at idle?

      Any chance you think of having adulterated fuel in the car?
      Any warning lights in the console?

      After taking lots of opinions from few Service Centers and other workshops, I went with the option of repairing ECM.
      Kun Hyundai (@ Hafizpet,Hyderabad) sent it for repair to their outsourced facility in Faridabad, HR.
      After 2 weeks I got the ECM repaired, but the Hyundai folks told that the ECM was damaged because of the Ignition coil and this also should be replaced.

      So total expenditure was 15k which includes 7300 (ECM repair) + 5800 (Ignition col replace) + 290 (4 spark pugs) + labor charges.

      Here are the pics of what they replaced with:

      I have been getting similar vibrations in my i10 1.2, 2009. 33K something on odo. The engine sometimes does not cold start fully and it appears that only half of it has started and car starts vibrating. I switch off the ignition and start again it fires normal. I was wondering that I am not starting it well and should hold the key longer in cranking position. It happens 1 out of ten/fifteen cold starts roughly. I think I should also take it to Kun Hafizpet next time it happens.

      I always start the car in neutral. Is there something wrong in the way I start it? Should I start in first gear?

      Looks like the fault was somewhere in the ignition system and they changed all the components just to be sure or they did not do a proper search for the fault. This 'fault' to seems as far fetched as puncturing all 4 wheels at the same time.
      Take all the old components with you or they will start selling used parts. If you have not, get someone to call and ask if they have a used coil or two for sale...
      I think you have been scammed.

      Have you a very low fuel level when this happens? If so, you might have water inside your tank. This a known problem in cold climates and keeping the tank full is the best prevention.

      No it happens even with 2/3rd tank full. The fuel filter was not changed till now. The non-hyundai svc where it was serviced last did not had one. But I understand that if ff is playing up it would cause the top end to be jerky but it is very smooth.
      Why walk when you can run?
