Engine shake could be misfiring or even a broken engine mount. Not related to your battery.

Wonder why my car 's engine vibrating/ shaking a lot at idle speed. Is this normal for this year model with 4 cylinders or it's really an engine problem ?


You don't say in your question as posted (as I write) just what year, brand and model vehicle you have.

IN any event it is not normal and I would recommend you have it checked out because from what you have described the car is
misfiring badly when idling.

Ymy battery light came on and everything on dash


shaking?
that means the engine stalled.
when the engine stalls. (do a tune up)
as the engine misfires, grossly , the 4 cyl . engine will shake.
and then it stalls
and many cluster lamps glow, CEL lamp. and charge glow.
you failed to look at engine RPM its wrong.
the normal hot RPM is about 800RPm for most cars.
and the engine EFI brain regulates there.
if the ECU brain can not regulate RPM at 800 that means you have gross misfiring, (lots of causes)
#1 cause, not doing tune ups, (aka, the 60k service points)

The car idles up down very slightly its hard to notice unless you realy listen to the engine, when you shut the car off it jerks a little its like a shake , also sometimes when you are about to come to a...


Sounds like your 02 sensors are bad. This will cause speratic idle. Up down, up down. If it still fires a little after engine is shut off, then there is too much fuel in motor caused by faulty 02 sensors. This will also cause check engine light to turn on. The 02 sensors tell the computer how much gas to give to engine

Engine idling varies depending on light or aircon is on/off


dude its normal for first start or cold start that the idle is ok but it must high than normal... its normal because the engine is warming up it self... when it gets warm, the idle speed will return normal idle... your engine is 1200cc, it has not much HP for a great load... and i know its a carburatored engine and its an old engine, your head lyt and a/c fan and aux fan and all the electrical system on your car, uses the HP of you engine and its a lot of load to the alternator driven by the engine to generate an electricity they need and thats why the engine rpm speed lowering down to dead and its shake. thats why when you use your lyts or all electrical, you engine is weakening... the best remede is adjusting you idle speed... its located behind the carburator.. its a small black knob.. just make a twist each eighter way and you'll find out if your idle rpm speed ts incresing or decresing.. just increase it and try opening your lyts and other electrical, if its still shaking then adjust it a little more

I need help badly.


Good Day,

The shaking can be caused by a bad motor mount, but could also be caused from the engine when it is idle'ing low and about to stall. The motor mount would also shake the car under braking, so if is doesn't shake whiIe your braking it's probably not motor mount, Is your check engine light? The idle air is another possibilty among other things. I can assist further but I need to know which engine you have the 4 cyl 2.0L or 6.0 cyl 2.5L?

Let me know about the check engine light aswell.

Hope this helps
