    Was having same problem and finally lost all power on car 2 days after buying. Took back to dealer, they are replacing the idler pulley. We'll see if that helps...

Ok for mine I figured it out. It was a faulty EGR Valve and my Throttle Position Sensor was done. The EGR was around $85 and the Sensor was $30 so not too bad now it runs great. Get your codes read before doing anything though just in case.
Thanks Everyone

Go to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts - they will do a check-engine scan for any car that is model year 96 or newer for free. They'll give you the codes. Get the codes and post them up as a reply here, and we can figure out what's wrong. I'm betting you're throwing some sort of misfire code, so I'd think your problems would be among coil, spark plug, plug wire, distributor, or possibly engine timing. Get your codes and post them and we can narrow it down further from there.

2000 Ford Mustang V6 shaking uncontrollably. Most likely culprits, transmission or power steering, but could be something else. Please help!

more detail, please. Does it shake at idle in neutral? If yes, not likely transmission.
Does it shake while sitting still? Only while driving? If while moving, check wheels/tires/brakes.

1970 ford f250 shakes real bad when I let off the gas. Any ideas I'm stumped

it depends what shakes ? if it only dose it when your slowing right down without braking then it could be an engine mount. if your braking it could be many things from warped disks to track rod ends/ball joints/loose wheel bearings. try and trace the shake. front right-left/steering wheel/back right -left.checks to do are,jack car up and hold the top and bottom of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement/hold the sides of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement ( on all wheels ) grab engine and shake it while looking at both sides ( checking engine mounts ) shaking can be caused by a number of things even bad shockers. good luck

My 99 subaru legacy 2.5 feels like its going to stall when im turning at slow speeds like about to park.

if you are turning the wheel all the way until it stops then you are putting the steering pump in a bind cuasing the engine to slow down more causing the engine to stall ,,, recommend you turn the steering wheel all the way you are going until the wheel stops and then back the other way a little bit to stop this binding,, shoulsd stop your problem

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.
