That problem is because a malfunction in the electronic injection system, it is not normal... The electronic parameters, if not right, tend to fail due to overheating and injection system(more fuel used than usual). First you should check the fuel injectors and the oxigen sensor, because the problem is presented when the RPM are at 600-700 or near, this means that the low cycle of the car is NOT OK, don`t try a fuel injector cleaner in the fuel tank, simply it wont work.
You have to clean the entire fuel injection system from the pump to the output of the injector and then clean all the cooling system( this causes the car to work on high temperature conditions and with time it will damage the fuel injection system)

It depends, is the engine just vibrating or is it causing the whole car to shudder?

I bought a 94 cavalier yesterday and when i turn the headlights on the wiper fluid comes out, also loud vibration when in drive and stopped


The vibration is more than likely a bad motor mount located on the front of the engine towards the passenger side.

Vibration when in gear, and stalling.


The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.
