This can happen in an automatic transmission if one of the clutches is slipping. Once you bring the idle up it should go away as this produces extra pressure in the trans-.Are there any lights on in the dash?What does the car drive like out on the road?Regards

When breaking, my break pedal begins to pulsate when stopping. Also, the steering wheel begins to shake when breaking.


Usually a sign one of the front brake rotors is out of round. It could also be something wrong with the abs but I doubt it.

Why does my car shake when going in reverse?


I would suggest running the fault codes but I would check the engine mounts for failure. In normal drive forward situation the reaction of the motor is on one set of mounts but in reverse the reaction is put on to the opposite side mounts

COLD WEATHER IF YOU HAVE WATER IN FUEL.ENGINE WILL SHAKE AND SPUTTER.TRANSMISSION WILL ACT UP IN COLD WEATHER.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL AND TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL WHEN YOU FIRST START VECHICLE.LET VECHICLE IDLE UNTIL IT GET WARMED UP.THAT SHOULD HELP.FILL UP FUEL TANK PUT A BOTTLE OF FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER AND GAS TREATMENT IN TANK SEE IF IT HELPS.

The car shakes alot when im on the highway but not in town i was told it was my transmission but i cant afford to not fix it myself can anyone tell me how to fix that


hi, i certianly can't tell you how to repair a transmission over the internet, it requires hours of labor to remove and even more to rebuild, but i will try to give you ideas on how to figure out where the problem lies with simple techniques. first of all, while you are driving at the speeds it make the shake, put the car into nuetral when shaking, if the shaking stops, yes, you may have a transmission problem. if it continues to shake even in nuetral, you more than likely do not have a transmission problem, could be in the suspension or tires, even maybe the axleshafts. now the engine can make a vehicle shake if it is running poorly. it is possible to have a misfire only under heavier loads such as driving on the freeway or at higher speeds. if you have an automatic transmission, put the vehicle in drive, press very hard on the brake pedal, and even put the e-brake on, and give it quick bursts of the accelerator pedal a couple of time, then push it a little to bring the rpm's up to the torque breaking point, like 1500 to 2000 rpm's. now with the engine straining, see if it feels like it's shaking the same way. if so, the problem is in the engine and has to do with drivability parts(ignition, fuel, vacuum). if it is a manual transmission, it won't be able to perform this test. it could even be a broken engine mount or transmission mount. you may have had diagnosed already, but it never hurts to re-check or have second opinion, these steps might help you decide for yourself, that way you can save the next diagnostic fee possibly, good luck.
