Runs fine in nuteral at about 1500rpm but as soon as you put it in gear it acts like you are fluttering the acc. pedal


Scan it for codes. Check for vavuum leaks. Make sure all the ducting from the air filter to the throttle body is tight and not leaking air in.

2003 Nissan Altima, Air condition makes loud noise when the unit is turn on. It slows down where u cant almost hear it after you turn the fan off.


When you put your A/C on, there is Vacum Motor or Solonoide, that increases RPM of the Engine to compensate the load of an A/C. If the vacum hose is leaking or raptured the RPM of Engine remain low and Engine Shakes. When you put the A/C on and the RPM of Engine Increases, but a little, then your Selonoide is working but not adjusted properly, so adjust it for the proper RPM of the Engine. Put all the loads on, I mean Head Lights and A/C on and then ajust the RPM.

Engine surges at rpm over 1500


Look for a vacuum leak (lines and intake), Is the engine light on, were any codes present? A faulty EGR or IAC could cause the problem too. Check the throttle cable for any restrictions.

86 toyota pickup shakes and shuts off when put in gear


2 things come to mind.
1. I don't know from your description which engine it has but it may be that the distributor or vacuum advance is malfunctioning or blocked.
2. Timing is a few degrees off.
Hope this helps

1999windstar missing prob


check the pcv valve vacum lines for a leak a vacum leak will set 171 174 codes. lift the hood with engine running and listen for a air leak , check all vacum lines if no vacum leaks can be found then clean the mass air flow sensor by spraying carb cleaner directly on it for about 5 seconds. in other words take the air filter cover up and spray down the tube that leads to engine. shine a light down hose first and see if u can see the mass air flow sensor so u can get a direct hit
