SOURCE: Nissan Sentra "Service Engine Soon" and uncontrolable shaking.

I had the same problem. It was the intake gasket, very common in this model. A $12.00 gasket - Nissan wanted $1000.00 to install it. I got it done for $327.00 - engine light still remains on but car drives just fine.

Steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied at highr speeds like highway...

When your steering wheel shakes at highway speeds when you apply your brakes, this is caused by warped rotors in the front.This is curable by having the rotors machined if they're thick enough or replacing them.Don't forget to install new pads or hardware also.I hope this tip helped!!!!

The car shakes alot when im on the highway but not in town i was told it was my transmission but i cant afford to not fix it myself can anyone tell me how to fix that

hi, i certianly can't tell you how to repair a transmission over the internet, it requires hours of labor to remove and even more to rebuild, but i will try to give you ideas on how to figure out where the problem lies with simple techniques. first of all, while you are driving at the speeds it make the shake, put the car into nuetral when shaking, if the shaking stops, yes, you may have a transmission problem. if it continues to shake even in nuetral, you more than likely do not have a transmission problem, could be in the suspension or tires, even maybe the axleshafts. now the engine can make a vehicle shake if it is running poorly. it is possible to have a misfire only under heavier loads such as driving on the freeway or at higher speeds. if you have an automatic transmission, put the vehicle in drive, press very hard on the brake pedal, and even put the e-brake on, and give it quick bursts of the accelerator pedal a couple of time, then push it a little to bring the rpm's up to the torque breaking point, like 1500 to 2000 rpm's. now with the engine straining, see if it feels like it's shaking the same way. if so, the problem is in the engine and has to do with drivability parts(ignition, fuel, vacuum). if it is a manual transmission, it won't be able to perform this test. it could even be a broken engine mount or transmission mount. you may have had diagnosed already, but it never hurts to re-check or have second opinion, these steps might help you decide for yourself, that way you can save the next diagnostic fee possibly, good luck.

At low speeds the steering wheel goes left and right by itself. At highway speeds it viabrates

If it's shaking left and right and shakes faster the faster you go i wood say it's slipped belts in the front tires.Hope this helps.

Shaking at highway speeds.

As for your shaking at highway speeds, providing your tires have been balanced properly, it's probably a u-joint. If you let off the gas when it's vibrating, and the vibration quits immediatly, it's a u-joint. If it doesn't, it's a tire or wheel.
The squeak is probably a shock, but that would be a guess.

My explorer shakes at driving of high speed

Something out-of-balance somewhere. Start with the tires, check the wheels, then have the driveshaft balance checked. Do any off-roading?

Shaking while braking at speeds 40 mph +

Anti-lock brakes mean the car shakes when the brake is applied. Try pumping the brakes.
