have the lifters removed and check for leak down and blocked oil holes and worn plates, broken springs. have the injectors checked for blocked tips . Have the fuel manifold pressure tested to ensure adequate fuel pressure is maintained as that also causes misfiring.

2003 lincoln ls sometimes shakes when giving it enough gas to pass a car quickly and also check engine light flashes and goes off after 30 secinds and car stops shaking. Please help.


Misfire from one or more of your cylinders, Have the code scanned. Most likely going to need coil(s) and spark plugs to fix the problem.

Shaking mazda mpv 2003 in idle and loud radiator fan


Hello there, As far as the check engine light I would think since you mentioned it shacking that your light will probably be on for a misfire, Meaning most likely you have a spark plug wire going bad. I would stop by somewhere such as Autozone for a free check to tell you why your light is on just to double check.

Your fan issue could be several different things such as the fan motor going bad or the blades could be rubbing something, that one is a little tricky without hearing it.

Good Luck and I hope this does help you some. Allen

1995 c220 mercedees--- shaking


Have your fuel presure checked,change the fuel filter,and for the temp. check to see if the elec.fan is working,it should come on at normal operating temp,and shut off when at lower temp.If it works,then have your coolant checked,or have the radiator flushe,or have the thermostat replaced. try those solutions,hope that helps.

I have a 1996 oldsmobile cutlass supreme sl 3.4l and sometimes my car will shake a little and the check engine light will come on and sometimes i will be driveing and when i hit the gas and take off fast...


the flashing check engine light is indicating a misfire. if you can't get it scanned for codes, start with the obvious, check plugs, wires, and coil packs first.
