A bad camshaft position sensor or a vacuum leak. Most likely sensor. Is your check engine light on? you can test sensors with an ohmmeter to determine if a sensor is good or not. It wouldn't be bad to check and make sure your coil packs aren't bad by checking each plug for spark. You can lay one plug and wire at a time one engine so end probe of plug is fairly next to metal. Have someone crank while you watch for spark.

Possible broken motor mount or torque strut. Your engine is probably rocking too far when it is put into gear. The torque strut will prevent that. The rubber bushing n the strut is probably bad.

1996 bmw z3 automatiuc transmission. It feels like my drivwe shaft is rumbling where it meets my diferential. Only when I accelerate quickly from a stop.


the rear universal is probably gone bad at rear of drive shaft. does it clunk when shifting from park into drive, get under vehicle, when it is turned off. you can leave it in park. grab drive shaft and see if you can wiggle it. if so its the universal joint on drive shaft.put on e-brake before getting under it. if it is bad, its best to change both front and back universals. Good-day!

I own a cadillac cts 2005 my car will not accelerate when gas pushed Starts great & goes into gear


What do you mean it doesn't accelerate? Will it accelerate at all, like gradually build up speed when driving? Or do you mean it doesn't drive at all? Does it rev while in neutral/park or out of gear?

I have a Toyota Camry 1992. The car runs okay, but when I stop the wheel start to vibrate really hard, it doesn't do it when I accelerate the car or it is in Parking.


Hi,
This is usually due to warped/worn brake discs/rotors. Time to have a brake job done.

It could also be the wheel bearings. It will require a mechanic to fix.

1995 Explorer conversion van won't accelerate


Sounds like you have a transmission problem, could be the valve body, or a bad band. I would check the fluid first it could be low. Just make sure the engine is warm, and the van is in park, then check the fluid.

Overheating at idle


sounds like a partially plugged radiator. Colder temps will be OK but when weather warms up the problem shows up too...check for leaves etc between the radiator and ac condenser before doing anything else. Stuff on the outside will act the same way as an internal obstruction.
