There is a vibration out of the engine when you take off in 1st and then 2nd but seems to die away in the rest of the gears. I'm hoping it is something easy to fix but I don't think it is. Seems to be coming from deep in the engine. If someone could help me out It would be much appreciated thanks

If it's an engine noise it may be the timing chain which is a fault on that car .Usually a rattle / clatter type noise , very common .

Someone told me today that it may be the balance shaft. Does this make sense to anyone?? because it would to me because the vibration feels just like something like this. And it's not the timing chain as I just got it done a few months ago. Thanks for your help
