Misfire likely, but please have the car scanned for trouble codes and report them back to us. Many parts stores, such as autozone and advance will perform a free scan for you.

My car's service engine soon light is on and the car is starting to shake a bit. i recently had the oil changed. what else could cause the shaking in the engine?


seems like the car's monitoring system itself is telling you that a trained tech needs to look at it, most likely with an analyzer connected to it, and soon. or you can ignore it, put up with the shaking until it finally goes kaput.

2003 ford expedition... shaking when driving and during stop. check engine soon light keeps flashing. recently had spark plugs changed.


will try to help.the shaking during braking may be a warped brake rotor,shaking while driving is in the wheel alignment. you have several issues to deal with.as far as the engine light flashing,check all your fluid levels in the engine. oil,low coolant, brake fluid,transmission fluid. top off fluids as needed. you can reset that engine light by disconnecting the positive cable from the battery for 10mins.this will reset the cars computer. but if you have a sensor or other issues,that light will come back on.the only way to know for sure is to have it code read a garage or dealership will be able to plug it in to get the codes for you.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I start my car this morning and engine service soon idication falshed more then one time and continue flashing my question is is it safe for me to dirve the car till monday as i feel the shakes while i am...


If the service engne soon light is flashing, it means you have a hard failure, that is occuring at that time. If the car is shaking, it sounds like some sort of misfire. If you continue to drive it, you risk permanent damage to the engine, and catalytic convertors.

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.

Service engine soon light comes on and engine in vehicle begins to rattle and shake uncontrolably and service engine soon light blinks


The blinking light indicates a sevier miss fire. Get the codes scaned to determine which cylinders and we can go from there.
Auto Zone will scan codes free of charge.
Chances are you have an ignition coil or injector driver issue.
let me know.

Service engine soon & brake light stays on


the service engine light is prob due to the oxygen sensor being damaged, not replace or you having the catalytic converter taken off---just messing with you. start at auto zone and have then do a free code read then go from there. you should troubleshoot the low fluid level switch for your brake fluid. unplug it and see if the light goes off and if it doesn't jump the two terminals on the harness. oh the car will have to be running. Let me know MrRodneyLong@gmail.com
