I have an Elantra 1.6 gls rough idling when switching on ac 1.6gls 2003

First try cleaning the engine throttle body and the idle speed control valve, it may have a slow idle due to these parts being full of sludge. Use a can of spray throttle valve cleaner. After cleaning disconnect the battery negative post for 5 minutes and then drive it about 5 miles, if the idle shake continues the next step is to install new engine and transmission mounts,.

2000 Ford Mustang V6 shaking uncontrollably. Most likely culprits, transmission or power steering, but could be something else. Please help!

more detail, please. Does it shake at idle in neutral? If yes, not likely transmission.
Does it shake while sitting still? Only while driving? If while moving, check wheels/tires/brakes.

Shaking engine, almost no acceleration, check engine light flashing

How about timing? How about the distributor and rotor? What about the timing chain?

Shaking car when put in drive

this can happen in an automatic transmission if one of the clutches is slipping. Once you bring the idle up it should go away as this produces extra pressure in the trans-.Are there any lights on in the dash?What does the car drive like out on the road?Regards

At what millage should i change the automatic transmission fluid? The car is shaking when i put it in drive it dosnt shake when is in parking i need to put it in neutro everytime i stop in a light so it...

around 75,000 miles, plus or minus 15,000 or so. when you say shaking, do you mean a rough idle? thats not cause by your transmission per se...

Sounds more like a weak fuel pump, idle controller, or well, theres a bunch of reasons you could have a rough idle.

The car shakes and the check engine is on, on a 1996 corolla

The rpm must have gone down too bad. Check transmission and take the car for a scan immediately before it gets out of hand.

Car shake

if its from the engine shaking from a rough idle or transmission having problems...then yes. BUT if its from a problem with your tires, suspension or steering. then likely no. you can check the OBDII on your car then if nothing shows up then look into your suspension/steering. hope this helps you out
