Have it inspected at your local garage. it's cheap and you will avoid buying something that will end up costing you more than a new car

Why am I experiencing intermittent vibration when I drive my new car.

A/C compressor kicks on and off, Engine cooling fans do to. This could be the vibration you feel. This is normal.

I own a 2002 Isuzu axiom xs 4wd, my suv was running kinda sluggish 2months after purchasing it and would bog down while idling at times then jump up to high idle and while driving would sometimes jerk....

The test you haven't mentioned is the fault codes and should have been the first test before any thing as the codes will tell you what has happened . So run the fault codes .

I am planning to purchase a 2003 taurus wagon with 107k miles The car runs good actually very good The only problem I see is it the gear selector although it selects the gear properly has a lot of slack...

My 97 Mountaineer did the same thing and it was 2 screws that needed tightening . Take it to a dealer BEFORE you buy it and get them to look at it to make sure that it's not anything more serious than that.

I bought a used saturn LW300 wagon, 6 cylinder. 94K miles. I have the complete service record from the time it left the showroom floor to when I bought it. It has had excellent maintenance. Since purchase...

I took the car into the dealer again to have the coolant topped off. They did the computer hookup again, as they have done each time...this time, when they pressure tested the coolant system, it failed the test. From there they found out that the coolant in leakin inside of the engine and leaks into the fuel injectors...they told me the problem is not fixable...except by replacing the engine.

Abs light and brack light flash wen u drive it

ABS sensor fault. This can be tested with a multimeter. There is a pick up sensor at each wheel on the car, usually reading off a castlated ring. Find the plugs for the sensor and set your multimeter to AC (the wiggly symbol) Use your test probes into the wires on the sensor side, and spin the wheel as fast as you can. The multimeter should read 0.2-2.0 volts ac. If nothing, then thats a faulty sensor.
Although i have given you a guide to doing this, it is better taken to a reputable garage with correct tools to have this test carried out.
