    Check to make sure you got the wires on the correct plugs. I made that mistake last week by switching two wires on an 8 cylinder engine and it created a good shake. You may need to get the engine diagram to confirm which wire goes where.

Also, make sure the plug wires are on the plugs and are well connected.

My car shakes a lot while at stop lights. Whats wrong?


Poor performance from spark plugs and wires. mine did the same thing. I tried to change the spark plugs, and found oil within and around the spark plug boots, which is problematic, but not the actual cause of your problem. If you find this, your valve cover gasket needs replacing.

If not, just get new plugs and wires. Got that done and shaking almost disappeared completely.

When idoling my 1999 suburban not much power.


Hello there

Sounds like it needs a tune up. You need to get the Fuel filter, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs and oil changed.

The fault you've described points to either electrical problem, spark plugs or fuel problems, fuel filter.


Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

1999 nissan frontier is idling rough the truck shakes but shaking stops when the air is turned on. changed oil, spark plugs, spark plug wires and distributor cap.


This can be your Idle control valve, when you turn the air on it puts the engine under load and your computer will increase the idle automatically to prevent the engine from cutting out.
When you are standing still and the car is shaking, by touching the accelerator very softly does the shaking stop? If so check the idle control valve.
I hope this will help.

Oil light turns on at idol, and almost dies at idol has oil


Replace your fuel filter and airfilter. If this doesn't work - you may need a new coil pack or cap and rotor if it has a distributor; if this is the case, change the spark plugs and plug wires.

Eng. shakes spits/sputters oil in spark plugs


I just had this fixed on my suby today. The cause is that the spark plugs, go through the valve covers on the 2.5 l .When the o rings in the cover go, the result is oil in the spark plugs. The cost of the repair in Canada was about $500 including diagnostics as well as new plugs and wires About 1.5 hours labor and new seals and gaskets. It now runs like new. This is a common problem for this subaru engine as well as for the dodge neon.
