I bought a 2nd new engine 4 my 96 Camry, I used it 4 barely a wk, now it mak a dip sound n vibrates wen I fire it,drags wen I try to mov or wen I go up a lil slope. Pls wat could be wrong with my car?

Most likely, you have either a fuel delivery issue (clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pressure regulator, clogged pickup screen), or your fuel is contaminated. I would recommend replacing the fuel filter, then draining and disposing of all fuel from the tank, then test the vehicle with NEW, CLEAN FUEL in the tank.

I have a 2002 sebring coupe with a 3.0 v6 mitsubishi engine in it. its acting quite funny for the past 4 days. it vibrates or shakes (sort of the same vibration you get from a misfire) only wen i am...

Based on the info you gave, I would say the engine is experiencing a miss-fire. At some point it should be bad enough to set a code for the cylinder or random missfire.
I would check the plugs and the ignition system first. The engine is working hard when it goes into overdrive at a low speed. Any minor problem will show up then.
The O2 code could be important too, if the fuel system is running lean. It takes more gas when the engine is pulling hard.

First it was filing out plugs but found out i can only use motorcraft, but today i put motorcraft platnums in it and its still back firing and shaking. wat is my problem? wat would make it back fire now...

Sounds like you might need a complete tune-up, coil, wires, rotor and cap, it appears to be a good idea to go to the shop for a complete fuel system cleanout, they'll remove all of the carbon buildup in your system and your fuel economy will increase.

I have a 2000 ford expedition. Out of the blue it started sputtering and shaking when I accelerate. Vehicle has144,000 miles.

Sounds like one of the coil over plugs have gone bad. this will cause mis-fire which causes your car to sputter, skip, and shake. It can be changed easily when finding out which one it is. But rather expensive for a simple part $40+ each.

Possibly the timing belt is wore out, loose, almost slipped a tooth - one of these. This missfire wouold lead me to this. When was the last time you replaced the timing belt? If it's over 80,000 miles have it done.

95 dakota sputters and back fires

Hi, you will have to go deeper to solve this issue. i recommend taking a good look at the valves. you may need to replace the springs and seals. and reset them also. a good look at the cam wouldn't hurt as well.
