Why does my car shake when going in reverse?


I would suggest running the fault codes but I would check the engine mounts for failure. In normal drive forward situation the reaction of the motor is on one set of mounts but in reverse the reaction is put on to the opposite side mounts

check you motor and transmission mounts. if one of them are wore out it will cause the car to do this. i just fixed a mazda with the exact some problem yesterday, but the situation was in reverse. runs like a champ now

I have a 1992 honda accord now the third spark plug is geting oil when you start tha car whit smoke comesout exhaust then the car has no power theops from 65 goin up hills the motor shakes likts about to...


usually oil on a plug is the beginning of the end-especially for an older car. Your smoke is either from valve seals leaking (bad) or oil control rings (worse)-prepare to replace it in the near future.

It is running too rich burning too much gas


if you look at the reverse of the fuel pump you will see a 13mm nut holiding a 10mm bolt. undo the 13mm lock nut and turn the 10mm in or out to adjust the mixture, this is easy as you can run the engine with the adjuster lose so you can high rev it and adjust all the black smoke away. dont go too far or your power loss will be devastating, you need to listen to your engine and look for smoke at the same time. i always leave a little black smoke at the high end of the revs this will give you enough power but wont black out the street.

When i put in drive it starts to shake like it wants to turn off and it wont run and black smoke comes out the muffler


You may want to check on the idling of the car. See if adjusting it on the idle control valve or cleaning it would help. Normally this would be the case in any gear, Drive or Reverse. If it is only on drive check on the tranny and the gear valve if it needs cleaning. Or it may be as simple as having the oil of the transmission changed.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
