Keep taking it to the dealer. If you have a warranty, use it as much as you need to. If you have to, change dealers, but find someone who will HELP you with your problem. The dealership mechanics are like all other mechanics. Some have knowledge of your problem and some DON'T. That's being honest with you. But my best advice is to use the dealer for your warranty problem. They have the best resources and knowledge base via computers to assist you. Again, if you must go to a different dealership, don't hesistate.

We understand that your problem is: hi my toyota ae92 has a 2e engine. when the engine is cool the engine is shaking and the sound of engine is like a chopper. when the temp rise up till 1/4 the engine...

well this engines are notorius to rougth idle, but my sugestion is to inspect your coolant temp sensor, check for corrotion in conector if any clean or replace conector, your engine has two temp sensor one is a single wire for your temp gage and other believe green conector with two wires this is for your computer, if no rust or corrotion found replace the sensor.
good luck

You should've changed the coil when you replaced the starter. If you could only do one at a time, I would've gone with the coil first. There is a brass plate that gets charred with carbon build up. Your banging on the coil shakes some of it off, re-establishing a good connection. You can sometimes get away with taking it apart and cleaning all off with a mini-grinder or rotary wire brush. This will confirm it for you and buy you time until payday or your next day off.

99 vw passat, when running, MIL lite, on car vibrates- shakes

no flashing light and rough shaking will be part of spark plug but also a very bad miss fire. I am going to guess that your engine is a 1.8t if so you have 4 coils that sit on top of your spark plugs that most likely are arcing you will need to figure out which coil is failing or you can save yourself the trouble and replace all 4 and the spark plugs. before you do that though check your wireing going to your coils look for broken wires or the ground that is next to the #1 coil that is the one closest to the front of the motor and you. hope that helps. that will be the start to fixing your issue also when you pull out the spark plug look down the hole first and make sure that there is not oil in the bottom of the hole if that is the case you will need a valve cover gasket as well. good luck hope that helps

Check engine light,engine miss,loss of kompressor power

might have a vacuum leak. 2005 c class 230 kompressors have issues with the engine vent hoses under the intake manifold deteriorating and coming completely apart. This will cause mixture adaptations to max out and can cause missfires. Usually it sets a check engine light when it gets bad enough. There is a factory recall to replace these hoses, so check with mbz to see if your car has an open recall
