If it goes when you put your foot down a little bit, then it sounds to me like idle speed control valve

97 eagle talon shakes on idle and bucks while picking up speed and engine light is flashing occasionally


This could be many things from the catalytic converter, to needing a tune up, vacuum hose, fuel pump, injectors or O2 sensors. My advice would be to go to Aamco and get their 89.00 check up. They will diagnose, quote and tell you what is wrong without a commitment on your part. Pretty cheap over all if you are a do it yourselfer and they will gladly fix it for you if you change your mind or just do the parts that you don't want to tackle.

Smoking, sputtering, and shaking


You have a check engine light so you know what to do now

Why would you use a car with those issues & not have a shop
at least get a start on some possible solutions

1985 celebrity starts and idles then starts to idle higher and higher what:'s wrong


Sounds like either a vacuum leak, a TPS throttle position sensor, an AIC air idle control valve, or worst case scenerio, an intake manifold gasket. Try spraying brake cleaner directly onto intake manifold at the gasket. If idle lowers, that is the problem. Also spray all visible vacuum hoses and listen for idle drop. Listen for air hissing as well. Good luck let me know if these are good tips

My 2003 Dodge neon shakes pretty violently while in idle. The acceleration is also off, yesterday I tried to pull out of a gas station and it wouldn't accelerate past 10mph until i hit the brake a


Before you start checking and touching sesitive parts such as map sensors, and 02sensors, or even think of buying $40.00 - $100.00 parts, I'd suggest you scan over all of your vacume lines(hoses), just in case one of them has a hole,cut, or torn. That's what I experienced. My 84 GMC pick-up didn't pass inspection because the check engine light on, and idle was rough and shaking. Everyone was suggesting same parts as here, on my expense. I was a little sceptical on guessing $40.00-$100.00 parts. So the next day I was looking at my engine, and heard a small hissing noise. I followed the noise, and low and behold! A torn 1/2"x 3"-90 digree, $5.00 vacume hose, that was resting above the hot valve cover. Had a small burnt hole. I replaced it,disconnected battery,drove the truck about 45 miles. No ckeck eng. light,smooth idle, and past inspection. Good luck, Frank.

Open then hood while it's idling and listen for a hissing noise. Sounds like you have a bad vacuum leak. Hopefully a vacuum hose came loose and you can plug it back in

Oil leak from pan and diying out in traffic do i replace oil pump?


Hissing noise generally is associated with a vacuum leak (which also causes rough idle and stalling) Find the source of the hissing noise and likely you will have found the problem.

Engine shaking when idle


find the vacuum line by listening to the hiss and following it then replace the hose and if it fixes your rough idle that is what it was
