Question about 1994 Nissan Altima

1994 Nissan Altima shakes while idling

The car shakes very heavily like it will shut off while idling in drive or reverse but it does not. A very bumpy and slow acceleration. Drives at high speeds on the highway without a problem.

Additional problem: I have been having trouble starting the car without a boost especially during rainy conditions. Perhaps the two problems are somewhat related.

I was told that 2 of the 4 engine mounts were broken before this started happening.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Broken or worn out engine mounts will cause allot of engine vibration in drive at idle, reverse also, change all 4 the mounts, not just the 2 broken ones. As far as slow acceleration no mounts will not cause that, Have you reached the 100,000 mile recommended tune up? have you ever replaced the fuel filter, this is required every 30,000, let me know.

Thats sounds about right, you need ot get those motor mounts replaced, this means your engine is tipping, wivch is very bad, the shaking oyu feel is the motor moving all around, it will cost you around $50 per mount, with 2 of the mounts busted, it means the engine is being held in by 1 mount.....

I suggest not driving the car until the mounts are replaced......

2003 nissal altima for 3 yrs now it will shake heavily when the air or heat is on and it is idling at a stoplight. The same sound occurs sometimes in reverse or just idling.Dealership keeps saying idle...


SInce idler was replaced, I would suggest A/C Pulley myself. They do get worn out from use as well as altenator pulley. then it could be the shaft itself, or the voltage regulator is not putting out enough power.
