Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Starting Grumbling and Shaking

When starting my car and turning it off it shakes. It is an 2002 nissan maxima automatic transmission, with 98,000 miles on it. I have also noticed when the car is in first gear it is also making an odd sound. This has never been a problem before, I'm not sure if its the cold weather or the transmission, or what please help.

2002 nissan altima started shaking and check engine light came on

Blinking means that the problem is so bad that it can damage the engine if you drive it. You need to get a code reader from an autoparts store and read the codes to see what the issue is.

Enigine shaking and rough take off

If the plug wires were off there's a good chance that you have fouled a spark plug or two causing the engine to misfire making it shake. It sounds like a good tune-up might be in order.

Car is shaking while in driving and shaking and

It sounds as if you have a cylinder missfire. It may be caused from a bad spark plug or plug wire, it may also be a faulty coil. I would start by having these items checked, if they check out ok then proceed with a compression test on all cylinders.
