SOURCE: the car shakes and the check engine is on, on a 1996 corolla

The rpm must have gone down too bad. Check transmission and take the car for a scan immediately before it gets out of hand.

SOURCE: check engine light is blinking and car does not

When the light is blinking it means the car is actively misfiring (which is why it's shaking and running rough). When this happens, pull over immediately and shut the car off. Running with a misfire can damage the engine.

You'll need to have the computer scanned for codes - they'll tell you which cylinder(s) are misfiring. Then you can investigate. Check the spark plugs for proper gap and to make sure that the car is igniting each cylinder correctly. If you have more than one cylinder misfiring, it increases the likelihood that the coil is bad. If you're unsure of doing this work, have the car towed to a shop that you trust and have them figure out the problem.

SOURCE: Trans does not want to respond in reverse & o/d light is flashing

With high mileage automatic transmissions, that have not been regularly replacing the transmission oil, it can cause major problems if you do change the oil. The sealing integrity in the valve block can be lost by flushing with new oil,
Firstly, just check and make sure the oil level is correct. Do this by running the engine, with your foot on the brake, go through all the shift positions 2-3 times, holding in those positions for a few seconds each time. Then put into park , still with the engine running, and check the oil level . if its a little low, add a small amount at a time till you get the correct level, each time going through the shift positions and then checking.

Usually burnt and discolored ATF mean pump or torque converter not doing there job or bands and clutches are worn. Shift solinoid or a pressure problem is the problem with 2nd and 3rd gear, Take it to a transmission shop and have them look it over but like I said earlierdiscolored ATF could mean a rebuild.

Jerks when put into drive only

You might check your transmission mounts; you have an upper "pendulum" mount, and a "dog-bone" mount underneath.

My 93 GTP,3.4 When put in reverse to leave my yard has a sum what of a hard bang and shifts hard.I replaced the dog bone bone but thats not the problem. Would a worn CVC jiont do this? What could it

Cv joints usually knock or click, especially when turning. Open the hood, start the engine and while looking at the engine from the drivers seat put foot on brake and shift to reverse. if the engine jumps, must have a bad mount. also may try giving it a little gas while holding brake to make sure. also try it it drive as well. chances are its the trans mount going bad.

note: if there are any oil leaks that are getting the mount wet it will continue to fail.

Dog bone location

Remove the top dog bone & either pull the motor
toward the front or radiator & block it, or go to amazon
& buy the tool that bolts into the dog bone mount & screws
closed, bringing the motor forward

You could make up something if time isn't an issue

I have 1994 saturn sl i found a motor mount on the bottom of the engine no bolt in it it looks like a dog bone i think it is missing a mount i would like a picture where it mount on the motor thank you...

There is a dog bone mount at each end of the engine. If it is on the bottom of the engine, something is totally out of whack. The bottom mount is under the transmission and does not look like a dog bone. I am assuming you must be writing the about passenger side, where the serpentine belt is. Remove the right front wheel, put the car on jack stand and remove the plastic service panel behind the wheel. The bolt hole where the dog bone bolt goes will be evident, or there will be a broken bolt. If the dog bones have not ever been changed this would be a time to do that and maybe the belt tensioner too. The other one is under the battery tray, both are fairly easy to replace, assuming you do not bust a bolt off.

What is the dog bone

It's an engine mount. Usually it will be one at top/front engine and one onside /bottom engine. They are easily replaced, just be sure to take the weight off the mounts with a jack.

I cnt find or get to the back spark plugs of my 1988 olds cutlass supreme 2.8L v-6 front wheel drive where are they and how can i get to them to replace them

On those engines in order to get to the rear plugs (firewall side), you have to remove a bolt from each of the 2 upper motor mounts (they're called dog bones) at the front of the engine and at the same time you take a pry bar and rock the engine forward and put a block of wood between the engine and the firewall. Some dog bones have an extra hole in them so you can slide a bolt in them to hold the engine forward. It sounds like alot of hassle but it isn't that bad. Good luck!
