Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that you have a faulty MAF (mass air flow) sensor. If the MAF is faulty, erratic idle can be expected and shaking usually occurs. The MAF is located on the throttle body and replacement will surely be helpful.

Have a good one and thank you for using FixYa!

How to save fuel and make your vehicle last longer, too


Improving fuel economy is easy - just take it easy. It willmake your vehicle last longer, too. Here are some specific tips on how to savemoney on both fuel and repairs.
  • Keep your tires inflated at the correct pressure. Under-inflation causes tire wear and wastes fuel.
  • Do not carry unneeded weight in your vehicle. Excess weight puts a heavier load on the engine, causing greater fuel consumption.
  • Avoid lengthy warm-up idling. Once the engine is running smoothly, begin driving - but gently. Remember, however, that on cold winder days this may take a little longer.
  • Keep automatic transmission selector lever into "D" when engine breaking is not required. Driver with the selector lever in "4" will reduce the fuel economy. (This is referring to vehicles with Automatic drive)
  • Accelerate slowly and smoothly. Avoid jackrabbit starts. Get into the high gear as quickly as possible.
  • Avoid long engine idling. If your have a long wait and you are not in traffic, it is better to turn off the engine and start again later.
  • Avoid engine lugging or over-reversing. Use a gear position suitable for the road on which you are traveling.
  • Avoid continuous speeding up and slowing down. Stop-and-go driving wastes fuel.
  • Avoid unnecessary stopping and braking. Maintain a steady pace. Try to time the traffic signals so you only need to stop as little as possible or take advantage of through streets to avoid traffic lights. Keep a proper distance from other vehicle to avoid sudden breaking. This will also reduce wear on your breaks.
  • Avoid heaving traffic or traffic jams whenever possible.
  • Do not rest your foot on the clutch or break pedal. This causes premature wear, overheating and poor fuel economy.
  • Maintain a moderate speed on high ways. The faster you drive, the greater the fuel consumption. By reducing your speed, you will cut down on fuel consumption.
  • Keep the front wheels in proper alignment. Avoid hitting the curb and slow on rough roads. Improper alignment not only causes faster tire wear, but also puts an extra load on the engine, which, in turn, wastes fuel.
  • Keep the bottom of your vehicle free from mud, etc. This not only lessens weight but also helps prevent corrosion.
  • Keep your vehicle tuned-up and in top shape. A dirty air cleaner, carburetor out of adjustment, improper valve clearance, dirty plugs, dirty oil and grease, breaks not adjusted, etc. all lower engine performance and contribute to poor fuel economy. For longer life of all parts and lower operating costs, keep all maintenance work on schedule, and if you often drive under severe conditions, see that your vehicle receives more frequent maintenance.
Good luck.

Why does my engine vibrate really bad when idling or at stop light and during take off?


Possible causes are issues with the fuel system (question does not show what vehicle, so could be carb or fuel injection), low idle speed, dirty fuel filter or issues with the engine mounts.

Steering wheel vibrates when Im stopped at a light


You may have front brake rotors which are slightly warped. The ABS only comes into play under very hard brakeing conditions. Typically you may also feel a slight pulse in the brake pedal as you slow down.That would be my best guess.If you have a vibration when you are stopped, that may be a motor mount issue. Either the front and/or rear mount may be weak.They are designed to isolate small engine vibrations you might feel when the car is at a stand still The motor mounts are designed to isolate small engine vibrations at a stand still at idle as well as limit the amount of travel the engine can make under a load. As a car gets older, the rubber which is what the mounts are made of get harder and often collapse slightly and can cause your condition because they are no longer plyable.Maybe this might shed some light on your problem. Good luck.

Rough idle when stopped in drive

Idle , lever on 'drive'' - vibration


if your vehicle isn't a convertible and the newer model (E90) the idle speed should be able to be increased. your vehicle has valvetronic. It doesn't use a throttle valve in the typical manner. there is a motor that changes the valve lift of the intake valve (this system takes the place of how a typical throttle works); if you have an E46 the older style 3 series the idle speed cannot be changed. An easy way to tell if you have an E46 or an E90 is that you have a start-stop button with the E90 and the key is a remote that pushed into the dash.
