If the car bumps and shudders when idling you probably need an oxygen sensor. The mechanism was apparently bad in the 97 dx as I've had about four or five installed free by the dealership under the extended manufacturer warranty which expires at 150,000 miles. I'm just purchased an O2 sensor, had a 'mechanic' install it and check engine light is still on so he probably got the wiring wrong. It's best to purchase the Honda certified part since it will more than likely be color coded the same way and more easily installed. I bought a Bosch as it was about half the price but it was universal and not an exact match to the Honda part.

I have a mazda protege 2003 and my car stinks like rotten eggs when i put on the gas and on top of that, my engine light is blinking and my car shakes when i stop at a red light!


i have a 2003 mazda protege. this is the third time my check engine light has come on. the first time the car started to shake when i stopped at a light and the check engine light came on. i had a readout done and it said misfire. i took it to a garage and they changed my spark plugs and wires. 2 weeks later it came on again and my car started to shake whenever i stopped. readout said misfire. they fixed the coils. it has been 2 weeks since then and my car started shaking again whenever i stop and the light came on. what could possibly be wrong with it?

Engine light is on camry 97 6cylinders.car runs great.


Could be on for almost any reason.Usually due to bad sensor or electrical problem. Some part stores will run the engine codes for free which I do recommend doing if your car starts to act weird. This will pinpoint exact problem area

My 1995 Acura Integra starts running roughly at 3500 rpms. Kept below 3500 rpms, it runs fine with no problems. It just started doing this. Never before. It seems there is somekind of govenor that kicks in...


If the fuel filter hasn't been changed in the last 2 years, that is a good place to start. Also,have you given it a full tune-up recently? those are the easy suggestions. Typically the major stuff shows up with a "check engine light" indication. My '97 Civic acted similarly to this, and it ended up being the fuel filter(at 167,00 miles). Cap/rotor/plugs or other ignition system faults will also limit high rev performance. When in doubt, Autozone will check your computer system for no charge if you're concerned about sending good money after bad.

97' jeep cherokee laredo shakes when driving


Could be a number of things from ball joints to your pitman arm(arm that steers the tires). It dont sound like tire are way out of balance because yu said it only starts when you hit a bump. If it was me, Id crawl under the front end and start shaking different parts until I figured out what was loose. if its shaking that bad you should definitly be able to tell when you shake it.
