The check engine light is telling you the computer is detecting a problem from one or several sensors. You will need to have someone use a scanner to pull the codes. Places like auto zone offer this service for free(they want to sell you parts). Once you find out the codes then you can try and determine what the problem is. Could be anything from a bad plug wire to a plugged fuel filter.

Vibration in transmission


I do not know if this vehicle has a torque converter lockup or not, but sounds like it. Does the transmission stop shaking when you go over 65? Some vehicles have a torque converter lockup, which means when the vehicle is traveling at a certain speed in high gear the torque converter "locks" and there is no slippage to the transmission resulting in better fuel economy. if the torque converter doesn't "unlock" when you slow down to say 45 then the engine will "lug" causing vibration. If this is the case you are not hurting anything by driving, just shift to 3 when it shakes then upshift under lighter load, or take it to a shop that replaces transmission sensors.

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!

190,000+ miles. Engine shakes while running and driving. Seems to shake less while revving and accelerating. I replaced the spark plugs. Any suggestions?


Check your engine mounts. It's an easy check. With the hood up, have a friend jump in the car and crank the engine. Look for the engine to "shake" or "jump" when he shifts the vehicle from park to reverse and back to park again.

The spark plugs are under the coil packs. remove the top plastic engine cover and you will see a coil for each cylinder, remove one coil at a time and with coil removed you will see spark plug in hole.
