    do you have aluminum engine block? if it is, you need to get inserts for the plug, the threads for the plugs start to go, or already gone.

    are the plugs tighten as to specification or just hand tight?

My eclipse won't start after I degreased it and rinsed with water

This is why some supernatural (intelligent design force) created WD40.

Water Displacement.

If you are old enough... you would remember the dead cars lining the road-way after a decent RAIN Storm.

High voltage systems... particularly like your DISTRIBUTOR hate moisture.

If you are in a hurry... spray down your SPARK-PLUG wires with WD40... use compressed air to blow off all standing water (especially around your SPARK-PLUGs) ... Pop off your distributor cap and sop up EVERY DROP of water from the inside with a clean tissue or paper towel.

If not... open the hood .... disconnect the battery ground terminal, open the distributor (read a few chapters)... and let everything air dry.

Next time you degrease any engine... put plastic wrap all around the DISTRIBUTOR before you start.

Drive safe & Happy motoring!

Engine very hard to start when its foggy and it rains

$5 it's bad spark plug wires. Some dark evening, pop open the hood and with a fine mist water squirt bottle and mist the spark plug wires - if you see any arcing they need to be replaced. It may also just be time for a tune-up. High humidity conditions tend to exacerbate problems with weak ignition.

1997 cavalier, 140,000 miles. Check engine light and oil light on. was driving on the freeway and heard a popping sound, when id step on the gas it did not accelerate but opposite, it would sliw down....

I am suspecting that the cam chain/belt failed. Check for spark first. You can do this easily by pulling one of the spark plug wires and hooking it up to a known good spark plug. Ensure that the spark plug base is grounded to the car frame or engine and have someone try starting while you look at the gap on the plug. If you have spark, then likely you have a fuel delivery problem, but my money is that you do NOT have any spark going to the plug. There can be a plethora of reasons for this to occur, but at this mileage I would guess a broken timing chain/belt...particularly as you describe a "pop" prior to failure. This is not an easy repair for someone not used to living under the hood of a car. Call around different shops in your area and ask about estimate cost for timing belt repair. Evaluate from there. Good luck!

My engine is shaking badly

You likely have a misfire. You will have to scan the code to be sure. You might have something simple as a clogged injector or a dead spark plug.

If you don't have an OBDII scanner, AutoZone will scan it for free but you definitely don't want to drive far until you know what's wrong with it. Chances are you should have it towed to a professional mechanic if you're unable to scan it yourself.

My 2001 Chevy Malibu is shaking, engine light on and I smell oil and rubber. It also is sluggish when I drive it.

My initial thought is that you have no spark in one cylinder. This could be from a bad spark plug or other ignition component failure. Have the spark plugs ever been changed? I would rule this out first, as they are inexpensive, and also under more stress than any other part of the ignition system. If the problem persists, then it's time to look at the spark plug wires or ignition coil.

Start the car and open the hood when it's dark. Do you see/hear sparks coming from the plug wires? Another inexpensive place to start looking.

My truck is making a loud knocking sound when I drive it

first you need to check the oil level (with engine off) if level is good than listen to engine knock with the hood open make sure it is coming from the engine and not the belt tensioner or something external on the engine,if nothing is found than engine will need to be repaired best thing is to bring it to a local shop for not to drive it much longer like this ,it could leave you stranded.
