Dear Curtisrwmoor,

A small amount of shaking is normal in some older cars, but if you have significant oscillating movement, then it sounds like you have a loose or missing bolt, or a misaligned ancillary from somewhere within the engine bay. I would also check that all the engine mount bolts are secure, and I would have these checks done immediately, because of the obvious dangers.

I do look forward to hearing how you get on with this, and if the above instruction does not solve the issue, get hold of me again and I will investigate this further.

Yours sincerely

Car started to shake, engine light went on

If the engine still runs this could be a broken engine mount. Easiest to check and fix. However it may be more serious internal engine damage. Sorry...
