My car shuddered and shut off several times. What could that be? At first we thought it was the belt that needed to be tightened and lubed, but now we aren't so sure.

    Fuel what?

  • darlei Apr 29, 2010

    Fuel level as in gas? Its on a full tank

  • darlei May 01, 2010

    It was actually the catalytic converters. There are 3 on my car and all 3 were clogged. Also, I went and borrowed an OBD II scanner and ran it. The knock sensor 1 and the ERG(EGR??) is messing up. Thanks for all your help !! I thought it was pretty funny that Autozone and those other places say you cant use and OBD II scanner on a 95, well, I had it figured out in about 5 minutes. I felt pretty good.

Why does my fiesta shudder

Sorry Ann,
Your description of the problem is pretty vague. There are lots of things that can cause a "shudder". It could be anything from bad tires, to faulty suspension parts, to damged CV joints to severely warped or cracked brake rotors (or several other possible causes). Your best bet would be to have a trained technician drive your car and/or give it a thorough inspection to determine the cause.

1994 dodge caravan le 3.8 awd shudders when coasting/or maintaining around 42 mph once i go faster shudder stops. also am smelling a faint gas smell at times. any ideas?

Several things could be causing this, I had a caravan and the shuddering I experienced
was due to a worn out front motor mount, (the CV axles had already been replaced)
Mine also had a fuel line leak at the flexible gas line from the tank to the solid line
on the chassis. I would definitely inspect the fuel lines first for any cracking.
Hope this helps.

Every 10 days to 2 weeks the engine starts to shudder (as if it's going to stall) followed by the flashing check engine light. Stopping the car and reseating the gas cap seems to correct the shuddering. At...

Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. What did the dealership tell you???? NO trouble Codes?

Jeep shudders and brake lights flicker as I turn ignition off.

It sounds like the engine is diesiling -- this is usually caused by incorrect ignition timing and/or buildup of carbon on the pistons/valves. Also, lower octane gas can contribute to this.

Sounds like it needs a tune-up.
