2001 COROLLA SHAKING ABOVE 80KM'S MANUAL 1.8


Shakes ONLY under acceleration? Goes away when you back off of the throttle? Are you sure?
Please inspect the front and both side engine mounts.The half shafts will cause that sort of a shake(whole car) when they go bad(inboard CV joints).
Aggravated OR caused my a motor mount that has shifted to one side,binding the half shaft.
Common in Chrysler mini vans!!!!!!That is why the front motor mount is adjustable.
Check the engine mount on the short half side first.

Car shakes on front driver side after 70mph


Hey,, The problem may not be relate to the wheels at all. Fro what your telling me it sounds like a broken engine mount. This will cause the problem. Basically the engine mount hols the engine to the vehicle and the rubber in it dampens the vibrations. With the rubber broken you will feel the vibrations on the pedal..

However to mention the can be another reason, This one is very unlikely here seeing as the pedal vibrates but just in case check your Alignment and Cambering.

basically take the vehicle to a mechanic to locate and replace the engine mount , ore than likely is the rear mount or the one closest to the driver. You can do this yourself if you like,

1.) Locate the broken Mount (you will see the rubber in the mount broken)
2.) Use a Car jack (the ones you use the change tires) , and use it to lift the engine up to reduce the pressure on the mount.

3.) remove the broken mount and replace it.

Its just 4 bolts, 2 on the engine 2 on the mount to the car body. You will need to get a torque wrench and a lever (cast iron metal pipe will work fine) to add extra leverage to turn the bolts off.

Engine shaking


sitting for long time a car can build up condensation(moisture) on wires and fuel system and make it "MIss" or shake this usually goes away after engine comes to operatating temperature

if it's shaking so bad it looks like it's comming out of there Motor mounts are worn /broken and sorry to say that was a common problem with those cars
after they had a some long miles put on them
that's gonna need a mechanic to replace them

Car shakes when idling'


Well this could be caused by a number of things. But the most common cause is an "engine miss." You could have 1 cylinder that has stopped firing. This will cause a very rough idle and very possibly shake or shudder whenever you accelerate. Another cause may be a main "vacuum hose could be disconnected" from it's port. Vacuum leaks cause engine shake at idle. Check for loose, cracked, or disconnected vacuum hoses under the hood. The third and least likely cause is a "broken or worn motor mount". If the engine is not securely held down in place by all the motor mounts, it will vibrate excessively and cause a shake at idle. The engine miss and motor mount problems are 2 issues best left to a professional to tackle. But as I said, you could tackle the vacuum leak issue yourself by checking under the hood. Hope this helps, good luck!

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 89 lincoln mark 7?


Broken Engine Mount. Get someone to look under it as you shift from forward to reverse with the brake on of course to see exactly what one is broken.

When i go from park into drive, my car shakes really bad and it doesnt feel smooth at all. Also when the car changes gears it shifts hard and jerks forward. I have an automatic pontiac g6 2006.


Sounds like you have a broken engine mount. Open the hood with the engine off and rock the car back and forth if you hear the clunk then you know you have a broken mount

My car engine is shaking


is it shaking due to rough running ? you may need a tuneup if not you may have a broken motor mount, with the hood open and the front and back of the vehicle is clear (not ruining anything over) stand to one side of the vehicle, observe the engine and have a helper with there foot firmly on the brake put it into reverse and apply the gas gently, then put it into drive and repeat the engine should move very little if it moves considerably replace the motor mount

Check front engine mounts. Open hood, hold brake pedal down, put car in drive, press gas pedal down a little and see if engine jumps up due to a broken mount.
