Put some Sea-Foam in gas and drive. Amazing stuff! Should clear up in 75miles if injectors aren't worn out.

The idle adjust screw is found just near the throttle cable connector. Fine tune the idle by slightly adjusting the screw till the engine RPM ranges between 750-900. Then apply a pinch of quick fix solution on the screw to avoid further disturbance on idling.

My car runs at low speed but the car still shaking,Maintain on time, has spent three years Toyota corolla,I want to know what the shaking will what are the reasons?


There are two types of car shake
1, stop idling shaking, this situation is generally low or lack of cylinder engine idle speed. Misfiring need to check the spark plug and the high voltage line! In addition, the nozzle and the solar term door dirty is easy to appear this kind of circumstance! Wash!
2, the driving time jitter, the chassis and a relationship! Because the rod or swing arms open, do a four wheel positioning can be solved!

2002 olds intrigue shakes while idling with brake on in drive


The cause is too low an idle and engine is starving for fuel so it shakes like that.The thumping sound you hear is most likely just the exhaust being too close to the floor amd bumping against it when in drive with brake on.You said yourself that it stops when you put it in nuetral,well the engine speed goes up when there's no stress on it.With some one holding the brake and it's sitting there thumping,set the idle speed up just enough to make the engine stop rocking that way.

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. :)
