    can you get just the boot or do you have to buy the whole coil pack?

Check the coil pack on the spark plug on that cylinder and you maybe able to just replace the boot that goes to the spark plug

My 2003 Mazda protege5 hatchback started shaking at a low speed. Also the engine light keeps flashing. What could this be? Can anyone help?


Engine light usually flashes because you have a miss fire in one or more of the cylinders. Change spark plugs and only use what came from factory( platium, double platium etc.... NGK) This can also destroy your cat. converter.

I have a 1998 gmc jimmy 4.3 6cylinder 4x4 I blew


What I've seen done to test an injector is to pull it, and swap it for another cylinder. If the miss moves, then the injector is bad. If the miss stays on #5, then the problem isn't the injector.

Check engine light on a 2008 grand prix flashes at higher speeds indicating a miss in 2 cylinders, however, there is not a miss.


the supposed miss may be in fact a faulty injector that is not delivering the correct amount of fuel as set by the ECM This may be due to a faulty circuit wiring or failing electronic injector control. It will not be as a definite miss but more as a half fuel shot that will not necessarily be noticeable at speed.

Car shaking at idle, no engine check light


Sounds to me that you have a cylinder miss fire. Chrysler products generally set a code when a miss fire is detected. Does the shaking go away under a load (while driving) ? If the miss is always there I would focus on the ignition system and look for any vacuum leaks around the intake manifold area .

I have a 1997 Saturn LS and it shakes while idling in a stop light. When I accelarate it hesitates to go over 30 MPH.


That shake is probably due to a bad cylinder. This means you are missing either one of the three...
no spark
no fuel at the cylinder (Bad injector)
No compression
You need to test these to know.

Exhaust sputters engine light flashes car shakes


which engine light? The Check engine light (yellow) or the Red engine light?

Flashing yellow means you are dumping raw fuel into your catalytic converter and will ruin the $800 cat very quick. It means you have cylinders not firing. Go to Autozone and get the fault codes to see what the cause is.

Hesitation in engine


Actually there are two kinds of engine hesitation.One is from fuel then two is the air .The mechanic should check on the fuel filter .look if the fuel that is going to the fuel pump is dirty or worn out . check the fuel filter then look if it is dirty and needed to be replace or change.Then the second is that the air filter it should also be check if dirty then replace it so that no dirt will go to the engine . if these problems are not solved then the cylinder will be having a problem that will cause the engine to hesitate.And always check the fuel you use to place to the fuel thank if dirty or diluted just to be sure.

Car engine light on light blinking shaking over due for oil chang


Your engine has a cylinder miss-firing, that not only shakes the car but makes the check engine light blink the cylinder number that is missing, don't drive the car this way or u will overheat the exhaust catalytic converter, this can cause a fire.
