08 vw passat shakes when starting and tps light on

TPS = Throttle Position Sensor
TPMS = Tire Pressure Monitoring System

The TPS is located on the Engine and is part of the Intake System
The TPMS is located INSIDE the Wheel. If you changed the RIM or the Sensor that is normally located inside the wheel is missing, it would cause this. The Weird Noise? Is that an Out of Balance Tire?

We need more information to assist you.

The code 1701 means: TPS signal to TCM malfunction. TPS=Throttle Position Sensor.
TCM means=Transmission Control Module.

The engine shake requires further diagnosing. Best advice is to take/tow the vehicle to the nearest Hyundai Service Department & have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician diagnose the problem. Be sure to provide the past maintance/repair history when/if you do.

My 99 f350 shakes like a teenager trying to learn how to drive a stick when i push on the gas pedal more than half way has anyone seen this before

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then there are two reasons why it shakes. A faulty TPS (throttle position sensor) and a faulty MAF (mass air flow) sensor. You definitely have vacuum flow irregularities that's why the car shakes. The TPS and MAF is located on the throttle body and by replacing it the issue can be resolved.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hi, I have a 2006 Altima with 31,500 miles. Recently, the engine start shaking when car is Idle but I still feel the shake when driving or at red lights. My second problem is a weird loud (humming) noise...

You don't need to change the spark plugs since it has only 31.5 K. The plugs should last 60K. There is a an adjustment at the gas cable end at engine to increase the idle a little bit. You can increase rpm at idle to 600 RPM. Since your RPM at idle is low that why it is shaking at idle, red lights. Let me know it it is shaking at high speed ( 2500 RPM)

In such a situation the TPS Sensor must have gone bad.

Have a check first, run a scan and if the code says error 7 for OBD 1 and P0120 or P0121, then it is the TPS Sensor.

Cheers and dont forget to rate this.

Engine shakes whole car

More than likely it is your engine mounts. If you have cracked or deteriorated mounts, the engine will vibrate with the symptoms you have posted.
