My engine shakes when in park or when stopped for a red light and sometime shuts off


Sounds like the Engine mounts need to be checked, and/or it has intermittent firing on one or more cylinders. Could be the spark plugs and/or the Fuel injectors need to be cleaned. As the Engine somtimes shuts down, I would suspect the plugs or injectors.

The engine light on my 96 merc cougar XR7 is on. Car shakes bad when i accelerate and engine light begins to blink. I'm embaressed to say my engine light has been on for sometime but was told it c


The check engine light needs to be addressed. Yes it could be a sensor but you need to know.
The light blinking means the problem is serious, such as a dead miss on one or more cylinders. The light being on means something is happening with the engine performance that could damage the catalytic converter.
Get the computer scanned - most auto parts stores will do it for free in hopes of selling you some parts. Once you have the codes research them online or here.

Hi, I have a 2003 Toyota Camry LE V6 which I have bought recently at 76K mileage. From almost a month after driving for 10-20 (sometimes after 30 min on a sunny day) my car would shake /**** when I stop at...


you may have a fuel filter/pump problem which can cause this type of problem if it can supply enough fuel to run the motor,and can cause stalling problems and popping noise out the exhaust.you may have to have it put on a scan tool to check for a code that may not set the check engine light,and the car driven with the tool on it so they can take a snap shot of the problem when it happens so they can study the information to see if something is showing up.

Jerks and shakes from time its cranked. can drive it but still jerks, doesnt want to take in gas when speeding up, some back firing when giving it gas. engine light flashes red until letting off the gas...


Sounds like a fuel injector is clogged up or is not firing due to the computer not firing it. Check by putting a noid light on each injector and checking for pulse by viewing a blinking light from it. Also, one can check to see if a stethoscope can be used to listen for a clicking from the injector indicating it's at least pulsing that way.

Sounds like your 02 sensors are bad. This will cause speratic idle. Up down, up down. If it still fires a little after engine is shut off, then there is too much fuel in motor caused by faulty 02 sensors. This will also cause check engine light to turn on. The 02 sensors tell the computer how much gas to give to engine

I have a 1994 with vortec 4.3 that shakes sometimes


Shakes how? While stopping? Or solely while idle, Engine light on?

If if shakes while stopping you need to check you're wheel hubs and or Suspension ,

Shakes at a light, You may have a bad fuel Injector, Check you're psi in you're fuel pump, A TPS would cause low idle or sometimes high idle, With low idle and a bad motor mount it would shake,

I know theres a few things I'm missing but,.. I have a major Headache atm so I'll get back to you with some more, when i can think better. :)

Amattison:

Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.
