Van shaking


Have the engine mounts checked. If the van runs OK, and it idles OK except for shaking at idle, it may be loose or broken engine mounts.

While the malibu is still it shakes a lot seems like it wants to turn off. I put in Neutrol and the shaking is less, what can this be?


Is the check engine light on ?
Usually when the engine is shaking you have a miss where one or more cylinders are not firing or not producing power.

Car shakes when idling'


Well this could be caused by a number of things. But the most common cause is an "engine miss." You could have 1 cylinder that has stopped firing. This will cause a very rough idle and very possibly shake or shudder whenever you accelerate. Another cause may be a main "vacuum hose could be disconnected" from it's port. Vacuum leaks cause engine shake at idle. Check for loose, cracked, or disconnected vacuum hoses under the hood. The third and least likely cause is a "broken or worn motor mount". If the engine is not securely held down in place by all the motor mounts, it will vibrate excessively and cause a shake at idle. The engine miss and motor mount problems are 2 issues best left to a professional to tackle. But as I said, you could tackle the vacuum leak issue yourself by checking under the hood. Hope this helps, good luck!

After the engine start running for sometime it starts shaking.


hi this could be a few things, i would check your idle as a very low idle will cause engine shaking when the engine is near stalling, idle should be around 700rpm approx when warm. If that checks out all good check the leads and that one is not getting worn and causing a misfire or a vaccum hose is not off, both will cause similar problem. The last thing i can think of is a broken engine mount causing problem as when motor idles or runs at a certain rpm it will shake harder and may be the cause aswell

Needs fuse box location and car idles rough


Fuse box is behind the soft panel under your steering wheel. Is your check engine light flashing or on? Would be a misfire causing the rough idle if it is flashing. A possible bad coil. If its just a shake with no check engine light then it could just be a motor mount.

I have a 1994 with vortec 4.3 that shakes sometimes


Shakes how? While stopping? Or solely while idle, Engine light on?

If if shakes while stopping you need to check you're wheel hubs and or Suspension ,

Shakes at a light, You may have a bad fuel Injector, Check you're psi in you're fuel pump, A TPS would cause low idle or sometimes high idle, With low idle and a bad motor mount it would shake,

I know theres a few things I'm missing but,.. I have a major Headache atm so I'll get back to you with some more, when i can think better. :)

1999 nissan frontier is idling rough the truck shakes but shaking stops when the air is turned on. changed oil, spark plugs, spark plug wires and distributor cap.


This can be your Idle control valve, when you turn the air on it puts the engine under load and your computer will increase the idle automatically to prevent the engine from cutting out.
When you are standing still and the car is shaking, by touching the accelerator very softly does the shaking stop? If so check the idle control valve.
I hope this will help.
