The most likely cause would be a random multiple misfire due to a bad ignition coil.

Hi my name is johanna, i'v got a problem with my car this morning when i was driving the engine light was flashing and then it was there permanantly and the car was shaking.


The engine light flashing indicates a severe catalytic converter damaging misfire . Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . Stop driving it ! have it towed . You don't want to have to spend a $1,000 on a new Cat.

I got a diagnostic test on my car cause my check engine light is on and it is shaking real bad when driving it and when i stop at a red light it seems like it wants to stall out


P0305 is a # 5 cylinder misfire , do you know what that is ? Check engine light flashing indicates a severe misfire that can damage the catalytic converter . Don't drive this vehicle ,take it immediately to a qualified repair shop or the dealer .
A Ford P0171 is a LEAN code for cylinder bank 1, and P0174 is a LEAN code for cylinder bank 2. These codes commonly occur on many Ford vehicles, and are set when the powertrain control module (PCM) sees the air/fuel mixture is running too lean (too much air, not enough fuel).

The engine light on my 96 merc cougar XR7 is on. Car shakes bad when i accelerate and engine light begins to blink. I'm embaressed to say my engine light has been on for sometime but was told it c


The check engine light needs to be addressed. Yes it could be a sensor but you need to know.
The light blinking means the problem is serious, such as a dead miss on one or more cylinders. The light being on means something is happening with the engine performance that could damage the catalytic converter.
Get the computer scanned - most auto parts stores will do it for free in hopes of selling you some parts. Once you have the codes research them online or here.

2002 nissan altima started shaking and check engine light came on


Blinking means that the problem is so bad that it can damage the engine if you drive it. You need to get a code reader from an autoparts store and read the codes to see what the issue is.

The SERVICE ENGINE SOON light in my 1995 Pontiac firebird has been blinking for about a month and one day it just stayed on. At the same time the engine began to shake and now whenever it starts up it...


If your service engine light is on that means that you can find the problem by having a local garage run an engine diagnostics test,it usually runs around 50 bucks and is much easier than trying to find the problem yourself,and most of the time it is cheaper !
