It could be your timing belt, a fuel intake problem or a hose loose on the engine

SOURCE: i have an 03 nissan altima engine makes loud clicking noise

1st check the the oil level and the vehicle's oil type.(owners manuel) 5w30-10w30
10w 30 is a thicker oil and could possibly be causing this.(Moves more freely through the engine heats the oil)

SOURCE: tcs light, check engine light flashing and constant shaking..

Use an OBDII scanner, some auto parts stores will do this for you free of charge.
Codes P0300 through P0306 indicate mis-fire and you may also get codes reflecting Cat damage from running that way.
I know of one TL from this series (2000 3.2 TL) which had a warranty REPLACEMENT OF TRANSMISSION!!! free of charge and this very problem was solved. I still do not know why they were related. Talk to Acura customer relations about this.

SOURCE: would bad spark plugs on any car make it shake and

Yes bad plugs/ worn plugs /oiled up plugs/ or HTleads with spark jumping will all cause the engine to run rough,and not idle and when it does it runs rough enough to break the engine mounts.
When its dark at night start the engine and look under the bonnet do you see sparks jumping if yes replace the worn parts if no then check plugs and if light grey there ok /if black through away.
So check it out and let me know how you get on . Ron

My Suzuki vitara has been sitting for a couple of weeks. Temps have been hovering around freezing. Just put a new battery in. Car turns over but wont start. ?????

no year car? wow...
no country. sold world over, with 5 more more engines,
miles on car?
miles since last full tuneup.?
when was it last a reliable daily driver? last month or year?
my guess( useless) is it needs a tuneup,
ever heard of spark plugs? fresh and new??
a tuneup makes 99% of all engines start in cold weather,
Ill assume it cranks robustly but I can't hear it?
200rpm is fast robust starter 50 is no good. 50 RPM
a mechanic hears that, and just knows, in 1 nano second.
new battery means nothing, what was CCA spec.

My car is shaking when I put it in reverse and a little bit when in drive. Prior to this I changed out my plugs and wires and the car was acting up by backfiring and shaking violently.

I am thinking that with the back firing ans all ,you put the ht leads on in the wrong firing order and had 2 wires crossed
when replacing the new with the old you fixed the cross wires but reintroduced a bad plug or a bad ht lead.

94 toyota spacia idles rough when in gear

94 gas engine? which one, (SIZE:?) and cylinder count.? 4?
this is called MISfire, AND IS caused by many things.
in gear what is in gear, the auto or stick trans, I cant guess that either.
Is this EFI fueling or in some far way country with old CARB?
we stopped carbs here about 1988. so... cant guess this either.
sure post country, that really helps, 1 in 100,000 hit rate on that.

sure bad spark is #1 cause of misfire! "a full tunejup"
but you skipped filters? (listed first, in tuneup list")
#2 on old engines like this is bad compression. 1 or more cyl.
#3 is bad fueling. (it can misfire flooding, or bog too lean)
too lean can misfire too,

i cant drive your car ,nor experience all modes of misfire.
so my answers will be all wrong, and wild guessing.
but Ill skip the guessing, ok 1 more, EGR leaks (that too is listed on the tuneup schedule as check EGR !)
i do the full tune up
it runs bad. still
i check spark timing , if way off the cam belt slipped....
5min. work that. just 5min. and omg wow;d timing jump 20 degrees retarded.?

i then check compression, it's and old engine, why skip this.?
the compression test is done wide open throttle, and will show
you if the engine even has some life left, say you get 170psi warm on all 4, and is spec. look like engine has future, so Ill invest repairs
if not , consider selling it (1hr work and speaks volumes on what to do next ,see?)
ok compression at spec.
now we have fueling,
you cant burn fuel with bad spark or bad compression so we arrive at fuelling, (complex)
ill stop here until you answer engine type, and fueling system
carb or EFI.
(3 possible diagnosis paths, carb, or speed or Air density EFI

tell more get more.

do the 60k tuneup or 100k, mile. per the book. fuel filter 20 yearsold?

Lose power going up hill

1968 pickup? what?
2012, Toyota updated Toyota Hilux Vigo "Champ"?
what year, no year no joy,
what engine, no engine option stated, so no possible exact answers.
if wanting dead accurate answers, WHAT COUNTRY?
upgrade = tuneup = doing all 60k service points?

now in the generic.
if it misfires, it can be bad spark, (engine shakes)
if it only bogs. its bad fueling
bad fueling means, bad carb.
if modern car, bad fueling means EFI problems.
do tell year,
do tell engine. (cylinder count and displacment)
or pick one out here.

Start by checking the tie rod ends on both sides on the front wheels..With the truck jacked up and jack stands underneath the frame both left and right wheels should be suspended in mid air..The are two tie rod ends on each side of the vehicle, a inside and outside tie rod..Check for any excessive place on each one...

Be sure you check engine oil level often. The low oil sensor will disable the ignition. If you turn A/C on the cooling fan should run continuous, Check the fan relays. Make sure coolant level is correct at recovery bottle, never open radiator cap. A scald hazard exist, be careful. This car is old and complicated, and is beyond your skill level to repair.

I have a 2000 caddy deville. my moter shake only when im stopped and not when i drive. i did a tuneup and it still shakes. can i be a bad coil pack or.......?

try checking the throttle body and look for lose hoses anywhere near it it might be a lose EGR valve anywhere near the throttle body. when disconnected or gunky or just plain out broken EGR's will cause the car to have a very rough idle.
