Car is shaking badly when i give it gas while driving.

    I have a 1997 Pathfinder that drives well around town but when I get on the interstate it will shake at times. I have noticed that it does not shake going up hill nor on flat surfaces but when I hit a down hill slope it shakes side to side. I have realized that taking my foot off of the gas or hitting the brake will cause this shaking to stop. The shaking only happens when I am accelerating. My initial thoughts are my rear shocks on both sides have gone bad or it has something to do with my driveshaft and U-joints.



    Has anyone else had a similar expereince? OR know what make my car shake on the interstate while accelerating on downhill grades?

Sounds like some thing that holds your rive place is lose eg lose our broken bolt our bushes worn out recommend take it to the specialist.

i have never seen a damaged warped our uneven axial that is not giving off saver shacking/noise and general discomfort only on acceleration if it was the case the car would be a pig to drive at any speed at any rev range

you will realy need to put the car on the hoist to check this problem

Easy buddy! This has not happened to any of my imported cars but it is most likely a damaged, warped or uneven front and/or rear axle. When gas is applied the axles gives out, thus your problem but only at high speeds, thus the interstate. Go in the shop, and tell them this.

Jack front end. Use both hands to check driver and passenger side tires for slight wobble. If wobbles, you have a bad ball joint. Otherwise inspect tie-rod end for wear.

SOURCE: my car is running very badly.idle speed is running

This could be a lot of things, but I will guess you have a air leak in the throttle body, and/or air flow sensor issues.
Do this, get some carborator cleaner and spray it around the throttle body where it connects to the intake manifold (with the engine idling). If you immediately notice an improvement/change in the idle, you have a leak. I'm not sure about the older Aurora's but on the GEN2 this is common and not too bad to fix - about a 30.00 part for the plenum gasket. (and 2-3 hours to replace).
Other thoughts - check reading on O2 sensors, fuel trim, etc - but this is futile of you have an air leak (above) which would need to be fixed first.

WHY DOES MY CAR KEEP SHAKING WHEN I AM IN OVERDRIVE OR HAVE A FEW PEOPLE IN THE CAR????


First thing to do is check the engine plenum gasket for leaks and change the gasket at the breather to engine conection . Next check the TPS throtle position sensor and MAF , and Vacum leaks at engine . Was the car in an accident to have damaged the control arm ? check it .

Hi,
What was serviced a few weeks back? Sounds like it needs a tune-up @ least to start - spark plugs, plug wires.

At 103K miles I'd also replace the fuel filter, air filter, PCV valve. And if you look in the Owner's Manual it should have a maintenance schedule for other items that may need attention.

I have a 1995 maxima with hickup or hesitation


It sounds like a clogged catalytic converter. If you can unbolt it; try unbolted it and see how it runs. Also try unplugging the sparkplug wire one at a time and see if the shaking gets worse or stays the same. When you pull a spark plug wire and the car stops shaking then that cylinder isn't firing. Watch out though, you'll get a nasty shock if you do it without insulated pliers. It could be a stuck valve or bad ignition.

I think you may have a problem with the drive shaft angle being to steep, check with a drive line shop for the correct angle, the make special wedge shaped shims to correct this problem.
