I have a 2007 mazda3,and just changed the spark plugs and air filter. now it the motor rattles and shakes.


Was there a reason for changing the spark plugs, was it giving you a misfire code? I have an 08 mazda 6 and I've changed the spark plugs before without any problems, if the engine is rattling and shaking it may be a misfire from a faulty plug or a bad coil pack atop the spark plug. You should be getting a Check engine light on the dash if so take it to a local Autozone or Advance Auto Parts, they'll check the code for free.

coil pack could be faulty

compression test will tell if it is a leaky valve

Hello,hope you can help,this is a hard one,98 lexus gs400 had starter put in.when the job was finish,the car was misfiring shaking pretty bad,so he checked the code misfire no2 the first time,however the...


Check Engine Light On, P030x Specific-Cylinder Misfire Code A cylinder specific misfire indicates that either compression, appropriate fuel mixture, or spark is missing. Start with a visual inspection, looking for a vacuum leak near the cylinder and any sign of wear on the spark plug wire. Check the compression on the target cylinder to ensure that the engine is mechanically sound. Use a stethoscope to listen to the suspect cylinder's fuel injector. Listen for distinctive clicks and compare to another cylinder.

My car engine shakes, I changed the spark plugs and it still shakes while stopped?


Spark Plugs---- Get changed every 3 years
Get changed at no more than 60,000 miles
Wear out but seldom misfire & never fix anything

So you have other issues

Vacuum Leaks -intake manifold
Vacuum Leaks -EVAP System
Ignition Problems
Air Idle Solenoid Problems --effecting idle
Exhaust Leaks-effecting the O2 Sensor Readings
Dirty MAF Sensor

& lots more things to check out

Worn out Motor & Transaxle Mounts

Vehicle missing,shaking,engine light comes on


Misfire could be a number of things:
a) spark plugs - change them if used over 15K miles - inspect/regap.
b) spark plug wires - change them if over 15K miles - inspect
c) ECM (electronic control module) - test with HEI (high energy ignition) tester.

The shaking tells me that the engine is running on less than its normal compliment of cylinders - the shaking is produced by the imbalance caused in the engine by one (or more) cylinder(s)
not firing at all.

The "Check Engine" light probably is coming on due the the misfire condition. Go to Pep Boys or
Advance Auto Pats, where they'll tell you (free) your codes causing the "Check Engine' light to be
lit - the code coming from your truck's computer will probably be one or more of:
P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder misfire detected
P0301 - Cylinder 1 misfire detected
P0302 - Cylinder 2 misfire detected
P0303 - Cylinder 3 misfire detected
P0304 - Cylinder 4 misfire detected
P0305 - Cylinder 5 misfire detected
P0306 - Cylinder 6 misfire detected
P0307 - Cylinder 7 misfire detected
P0308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected
P0313 - Misfire detected with low fuel

I change the spark plug and after starte to shake ann act weir and check engine light came on


Did you gap the spark plugs, or did any of the spark plug wires get damage while removing them, or did a spark plug wire get crossed,the engine light is most likely a cylinder misfire, I would check or replace spark plug wire's.
