My check engine light is on. The whole suv shakes uncontrollably but doesn't stall. Feels like it is going to. Also, it is skipping cylinders 1 and 2.What is going on??? Our first mechanic says the engine is bad, inside and won't work on it!

    my santa fe is skipping cylinders 1 & 2, my mechanic looked at everything it could be without opening up the engine and found nothing.  He said it had to be internal, possibly a spring, or a valve.

Engine skipping on a buick Rendezvous


When the check engine light is on, the computer has found a problem that can affect fuel economy or emissions.
When the light flashes the problem is serious.
You need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with testing.

2003 SATURN VUE SERIVE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS BLINKING ON AND OFF RAN THE OBDII READER AND CODE P0304 CYLINDER MISFIRE CAME UP I CHANGE SPARK PLUGS AND BOOTS BUT CAR STILL DRIVES ROUGH SHAKES AND WHEN PARKED...


The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

I have a 2003 mitsubishi galant ES 4 cylinder and have a check engine light message on i had the code read at auto zone and they told me the third cylinder is misfiring and when it idles it jumps around...


Misfire means you need spark plugs replaced. Or spark plug coils.

That's why the whole car starts shaking because its running basically on 3 cylinders and not 4 as supposed. There is no gas compression on the 3rd cylinder because once again the spark plug is "misfiring"

There also might be even a bigger problem which could be the distributor cap where the coils are connecting outside the engine.
once you fix the problem the check engine will turn off immediately

hope that helps.

98 civic, erngine light comes on, and it stalls. turns on in min


Change fuel filter to start with. It sounds like it could be partly clogged. If no change, change plugs and wires. I'm not sure what you mean by the "rumble strip" thing, unless it's shaking as a result of one cylinder not firing, and causing a shaking feeling. A dead plug or wire would also cause loss of power and stalling. Let me know what you find.

Nissan Sentra "Service Engine Soon" and uncontrolable shaking.


I had the same problem. It was the intake gasket, very common in this model. A $12.00 gasket - Nissan wanted $1000.00 to install it. I got it done for $327.00 - engine light still remains on but car drives just fine.

Service engine soon light comes on and engine in vehicle begins to rattle and shake uncontrolably and service engine soon light blinks


The blinking light indicates a sevier miss fire. Get the codes scaned to determine which cylinders and we can go from there.
Auto Zone will scan codes free of charge.
Chances are you have an ignition coil or injector driver issue.
let me know.

1996 Ford Explorer vibrates when idling. Also have noticed that when I go 80 mph, it "jumps" every few seconds. Like it skips a beat. I don't know how to explain it but it seams to "stall" like if you were...


You have a hesitation. A hesitation is cause be either:
1. bad spark plug
2. bad spark plug wire
3. bad or leaky or plugged injector
4. timing is off
5. leaky vacuum hose

SHAKING SUV LOW POWER & RACING ENGINE


U need to have the cars computer scanned for stored codes, which will give u an idea of what to do.
Most parts stores offer free scans, they just plug into a port under the dashboard, and can have the codes in a couple of minutes, will explain what they mean, and what u should do. If u have any questions after that, u can post another request here.
