You should retrieve the codes and see if you have a code for the throttle position sensor. sounds like you could have a loose or broken motor mount. that would be something you should be able to find with a visual inspection. hope that helps

I have a 2003 Kia Optima v6 and I started it up today and the check engine light is on. I checked the oil, water and gas cap and it is still on. I am afraid to drive it.

drive it if it drives and understand if the warning light is red save money and call a tow truck/ if it is another color do not disregard- it may cost you dollars but it will not likely leave you standed in the mohave desert

Check engine light blinking car shaking, oil light on after a few miles from starting

May be low oil, low oil pressure (faulty oil pump) or a bad pressure switch. When your at highway speeds the pump, pumps faster & brings the oil to the right PSI. Try a thicker oil than called for, get the oil pressure checked,oil leaks? & get the switch ckd out.

93 Dodge Spirit hit curb Hit curb on back driver side tire. Nothing wrong with tire but right after I hit the curb, my car started to shake and slow down. It turned off completely when at a stop. Oil...

the smoke came from the spilled oil leaking onto a hot surface ( manifold) No problem there. The oil light coming on was probably from the oil surging away from the oil pickup in the sump momentarily allowed the oil pump to suck air hence a drop in oil pressure. To have all that happen, the hit on the curd was substantial. so I thinking bent axle flange and broken engine mounts could explain vibrations and engine shaking

2004 Kia Optima Oil light blinking. Doesthat mean I need to change my oil pump or oil filter with oil change?

A flashing oil light usally means low oil pressure. If the oil pressure drops below a set point the light will contiune to flash even if the pressure rises back up to normal until you resart the car. Start simple and check the oil. If low then add. Keep an eye on it, if your losing it, its going somewhere, exhaust, or out a seal or if you went to jiffy lube, probably out of the oil filter due to it not being tightened. If oil is ok, your oil pump may be bad. That job is a little complex.
