SOURCE: engine light is on and the car will not accelerate, the tail pipe shakes and puffs

Check the trouble codes, and check that the catalytic converter is not plugging the exhaust up. If you bang on it and you hear rattling, it is probably bad. One way to verify is to run the engine with the converter disconnected from the exhaust. If it runs better, the converter is bad.

SOURCE: Check engine light just came

You need to take it to Autozone to get scanned. They will do it for free and they will let you know why the light came on. Other part stores offer the same service.

I have a shaking in my car when I step on the accelerator,


I would be looking at my drive shaft and any bushes around the engine mounts, particularily any at the back of the engine.

If you check anything you distrubed when you changed the tie rods.

More info on the car would nbe helpful

What causes shaking while accelerating


Mrs Amanda when you said on pushing the gas pedal is shaking do you mean the whilst accelerating with engine running ( reving) you do receive a shake? or when pushing the pedal you do feel on the pedal with engine off a shake? If it is the first check for any spark plug or spark plug HT Lead not working and cause the engine to shake. If is the second cause then check for your pedal connection cable etc.

Why is my car shaking


Short answer: If it quits shaking when you let off of the gas pedal, it is likely an engine misfire.

Long answer: I believe your model is new enough for the transmission to have a lock-up torque converter.
At around 40-45mph, the torque converter locks, making a solid connection between engine and transmission.
When this happens, any engine misfire is more readily felt throughout the car during acceleration.
The first items to check would be spark plugs, spark plug wires, and ignition coils. These are most likely to act up under load conditions such as acceleration.

On the other hand, if you let off of the gas pedal and the car still shakes, it is probably a tire or wheel problem.

Shakes ONLY under acceleration? Goes away when you back off of the throttle? Are you sure?
Please inspect the front and both side engine mounts.The half shafts will cause that sort of a shake(whole car) when they go bad(inboard CV joints).
Aggravated OR caused my a motor mount that has shifted to one side,binding the half shaft.
Common in Chrysler mini vans!!!!!!That is why the front motor mount is adjustable.
Check the engine mount on the short half side first.

How about timing? How about the distributor and rotor? What about the timing chain?

Would an idle control valve cause a car not to accelerate?


no, idle air control valve is literally to control your idle speed.
what happen when you press on gas? car shakes, RPM goes up, or engine just bogs down?
