It sounds like you are not firing on all cylinders. there could be several possibilities. Starting with the cheapest fix, replace the spark plugs. if the problem continues, you have a bad or plugged fuel injector or possible other things. The best approach after changing the plugs is to take you car to a dealer or simply have your mechanic or a friendly neighborhood motor head pull the codes. This is the best avenue to start with. .

Weak power,shaking engine ,engine light blinking,even in neutral


The check engine light can come on for many different reasons. There is only ONE reason for it to flash or "blinking" because excess or un-burned fuel is going into the exhaust and WILL damage the catalitic converter. The weak power and engine shaking is because not all cylinders in the engine are working. Most common causes are tune-up related. If you have a spark plug that does not work ( creates a spark to ignite the fuel which makes the engine run) this unburned fuel will go into the exhaust where the catalitic converter is located.This unburned fuel will cause excessively high temperatures in the converter and Will damage it. The most common reasons for no spark at the plugs- worn or defective spark plugs, spark plug wires or ignition coil. Hope this helps

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.

sounds like you might just have a new battery that needs charging FIRST - before you try anything erlse - check ur new battery - they sometimes come without a charge.


How many miles - ?

First it is best to be sure the solenoid is ok. There are two large 'terminals' on the solenoid -
one leads to the battery - using a jumper wire or even a screw driver - [ get a pro or someone with more experience if u not confident here] - jump the large BATTERY SIDE terminal to the small wire terminal - it usually has a simple push on wire - remove the little wire - and put ur jumper cable on that terminal - - be sure the car is in park - and or emergency break on.
Also be sure your neutral safety switch is good. If ur car is automatic then put it in neutral - with brake on and try it -

Shaking engine, weak power, blinking check engine light


You have a bad coil pack, they usually crack from age and heat. It's best to replace them all. Check for a VW recall on this item.

Are you getting any error codes? Is the check engine light on and/or blinking? The vibrating and other symptoms you described are common from shorted ignition coils. It also sounds like there's a separate issue with power steering - check your fluids, pump, and hoses.

Disconnect the battery completely, try turning the key with the battery disconnected. Put the battery back together. The check engine light should be off now..
