Question about 1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

1 Answer

Engine started to shake and rumble when u start it and in idle

Check engine light came out. I also noticed that rpms in idle very low- 500 and it changing between 500 and 800 in a wave like way together with the oil level. If u press a gas pedal in neutral or in park and increase rpms to 1000 the shaking goes away. there is also no shaking while driving but the car jerks between stop and untill 20 mph.
I changed spark plugs but it didnt help. Anyone know what could be the reason?

    It seems you may have a severe misfire situation. Guel injected? Could be an injector. Could be a bad plug wire. These should be chked Does it smoke at the tailpipe?

I think you right in your thinking by replacing the plugs. My guess is that an injector is partially blocked. Remove the fuel pump relay and take the vacuum hose of the pressure regulator on the end of the fuel rail. Try to start the engine to relieve pressure from the system. Remove the air cleaner ducting. Open the fuel filler cap for a second to relieve any pressure in the tank. Disconnect the fuel supply and fuel return pipes to the fuel rail. Unbolt the fuel rail mount, disconnect the injector electrical connections and ease the injectors out. Take care with the wiring some of the insulation can become brittle. The injectors are held in the intake manifold by 'O' rings and likewise to the fuel rail; securing clips ensure that the injectors are held securely to the rail. Wash and back flush these babies until you are happy they are clean and free of obstruction. Also check the fuel pressure regulator, it is rare for these to fail but its worth checking. Dry everything off. Apply a little oil to the 'O' rings prior to reassembly. If the problem persists at least you can cross this area off your list.

1998 Honda Accord engine rumbles and stops

rumbles?, did the RPM drop below 800 RPM? that is called idle failure
and when it does, idle can go to 400 rpm and will shake hard.
and is normal for illegal idle speeds. so post that first.
post that engine stalls
and that the RPM is 400-500 just before the stall.
then post if the fast right foot can save the stall (a key test !!!!)
if easy the ISC is sticking.
if tad hard the EGR is stuck open'
if impossible to save. then more possible (many)
ever do the 60k mile tune up this decade????,. if not why not./ now.

I have a 2006 jetta gli turbo with about 82000 miles on it about four months ago the check engine light came on but nothing noticeable was going on with my car or the drive. recently when it started...


You need to go to a shop with a code reader. The check engine light was telling you something and you need a code reader. Depending on which country you are in, if in the states autozone may have it for free.

Whatever initiated the light is now messing up the other parts of the car.

Hope that helps.

98 lincoln navigator loud noise, shaking, high rpm at idle, drive

I don't know how much oil you had to put in but it sounds like you have maybe more than opne issue and both sound major. One is engine reving and speed not picking up sounds like trans problem. Two the engine shaking and making noise and being run low on oil leans toward possible engine damage. If your mechanicly inclined check all fluids and when checking trans fluid smell it. If it smells burnt the trans has been damaged. Check oil pressure and make sure coolant is full.You may have to take it into the shop.
