    well your in luck, all you need to do is hook up a scan tool to your OBD2 port, (its a rectangular shaped connection with rounded edges, if memory serves there will be 8 terminals on the port, typically they are mount either just under the dash on the drivers side of the vehicle, though somtimes the can be found on the passenger side or under the hood) most auto parts store will either hook one up for you if you can bring the car to the store or you can rent them for fairly cheap. once you scan the ecm it will give either give you a trouble code which you may need to look up in a repair manual (haynes or chilton is recommended) or it will identify the issue your car is having on the screen, depends on how the manufacturer set up the ecm and or how fancy the scan tool you use is. most likely its an idle air control sensor or a bad mass air flow or MAP sensor. if not you could be looking at a bad fuel pressure regulator or a coil pack operating outside its threshold due to either a fault in the coil pack or a faulty signal from the crank or cam sensor. either way as long as you have a code stored (check engine light is on) then the scan tool will identify the issue. hope this helps

2010 Jeep Wrangler unlimited sport extreme shudder at 40 mph- if I press the gas-pedal and get the RPMs to rev, the shudder ceases, only to return once I am back down around 38 mph-41mph.

which engine the 3.6? v6?
that shudder is called MISFIRE.
get a tune up yet, even $1.49 spark plugs?
no its not the trans,
if it dont slip, its not trans, (see RPM races? that is slip or too low gear)
if it shifting to the right gears, its not the trans can you count them?
is the CEL lamp glowing or flashing driving, is yes, that means
scan me now. in fact scanning while it shudders, is like (magic)
why start guessing, do a tuneup,
then scan it.
if its is misfire the PCM will tell you what cylinder misfires.

are your spark plugs 6 years old, if yes, why?
going for 200k miles on them.?

My car has started to shudder and the engine light plus the ABS and T/C lights have come on. What does this mean?

When the check engine light comes on it will usually disable the traction control which is also tied into the ABS as a safety feature resulting in their lights to come on. The shudder may be caused by a cylinder misfire which in turn should cause the check engine light to flash when the misfire occurs and will keep the check engine light on. Have the computer scanned for codes to see if a misfire is present and correct from there. It may be as simple as a spark plug/ignition coil failure. When the problem is corrected and the codes cleared, the lights will go out

2000 echo shuttering when you accelerate

Sounds like an engine misfire.Does the check engine light come on or flash. If so, it may be a spark plug or ignition coil issue. The transmission can also cause a shudder problem. These transmissions are usually rather dependable though.

Decreased engine, now it shudders & idles rough

The water has gotten past the plug boot seal. Pull the plug tire off the plugs and use some compressed air to blow out and dry the plugs. Some times the water can really get deep so don't pull out the spark plugs.

I have a 2006 Suzuki Forenza. Last week the engine light started flashing and the engine started misfiring during exceleration, especially in low speeds (under 20mph). It appeared to run fine at firt at...

You may have a trouble code without the check engine light, but normally the light comes on too.
The code was probably 304 which means cylinder 4 is not producing power. That can be caused by no spark, no fuel, or no compression.

2000 Land Cruiser flashing check engine light and the car is running rough/shuddering

The warning light is telling you the computer has found a problem that is affecting engine performance and fuel mileage. A flashing light means it is something serious.
You should have someone scan the computer for trouble codes and go from there. The codes will help direct the mechanic as to what to test.
