There are so many sensors that will cause this. What I tell all of my customers to save them money is to take the car to Autozone. They will put the car on the scanner free of charge. Then they will give you the codes and the diagnosis of the scanner. More than likely it is going to be a sensor. This should be covered under warranty. But if you have already driven too many miles, then it won't. But the drivetrain should be covered. I hope that this helps you out!

My car makes loud sound when i drive and the car shakes and vibrates when i stop at a red light and still keeps making the loud stound . any idea whats the problem and how much it will cost me around


Have the sound investigated immediately as from your description it may be a major engine failure in the making. If it is then the fix will be another engine and that will be expensive.;

2010 mustang air conditioner blowing warm air and hesitating


Very strange.
Usually the ac compressor cuts off if the computer detects a major problem with the engine such as a power loss on more than one cylinder.
And if that happens the computer should store trouble codes for the issues.
Is the check engine light staying on ? Will the ac work if the engine idles ?

Front end and steering wheel shakes


when slowing to make right turn is it more like a clicking noise, does it do it while turning or just when slowing down. If it is while you are turning it is most likely the right cv axle drive shaft popping. When at a stop with ac on does it shake if you put it in park and how do the rpms read in park or in drive. Did they change the trans mount also dont thank that is it just trying to get a better understanding so I can better assist you.

1999 New Beetle. PLEASE HELP! SHAKES REALLY BAD!


A shake with the engine running (known in the vernacular as a "shimmy") can be caused by several things. In this case, since it's at idle, I'd wager either a.) timing went off, which in an EC (electronic control) vehicle means you should be asking "why me?" or b.) could be a miss. Chances are, whatever the problem, that check engine code that got tripped will tell you what happened. It might be a simple thing like a sensor malfunctioned and now is telling the engine to fire wrong, dwell wrong, too much gas...etc, or it might be something went seriously wrong (broken engine mount, bad distributor...etc). Either way, get that code read and you should be able to get back on the road.
