The most likely cause of this is a malfunctioning sensor called the VSS (Vehicle speed sensor), to be sure you will need to have an OBD 2 electronic systems trouble code test performed, anytime the ck eng lite comes on the computer (PCM) will set a trouble code for that problem in its memory, if you live outside calif you can get a free test of the OBD 2 system at Kragen or Autozone or another discount auto parts store for free, call to verify they do the test, if you live in calif then you will either need to buy a code reader for the system or have a shop read the code for you, the connector to read the code is just below the steering wheel at bottom of dash.

Shaking during idle when warm.


try injector cleaner or newer fuel cleaners, try octane booster, sounds like a fuel delivery symptom but the temperature factor is a worry. I would guess injectors.

Sounds like you have an intermittent electrical problem somewhere in the ignition circuit. I would check all of the electrical plugs and connections for corrosion. I would start with the power wire to the ecm which should be a small red wire connected to the poss. terminale on the battery. Also check all ground connection. The ecm power wire might also be connected on the other end of the poss cable on the starter.

SPEEDOMETER JUST QUIT. I REPLACED BOTH INPUT & OUTPUT SENSORS. I WAS TOLD THAT IF ONE OF THE SPEEDOMETER SENSORS GO OUT THE ENGINE LIGHT WILL COME ON. MY ENGINE LIGHT DID NOT COME ON. NOW I'M WORRIED.


The same happened on my Chrysler voyager just quit you have to reset it that was all it was on mine. I think my husband held the button in on the speedo/milage counter until you have lots of lights come up on your dash board it looks very pretty. This should reset your speedometer it did mine. Good luck
