1994 nissan maxima - car shaking and engine light on

Over the weekend, my car started to shake and my engine light came on. The car is also a bit louder than usual. WHen i put the car on neutral, it wouldn't shake as much. My car is pretty old and has a lot of mileage (171K) on it.

Someone told me to bring it in for a tune up, would that solve the problem? how much does the tune up usually cost so i would know what to expect?

thanks!!

A rough running engine is a good sign for a tune up (plugs and wires) but the plugs could get expensive.I do not recomend using any other plug but a platnium NGK.You might also want to add a very good dose of techron injector cleaner to the tank before adding gas to clean your injectors.

1995 nissan maxima. When starting the car I have to count to 3 then it turns over and makes a screeching noise for 1 or 2 min (especially when it's cold). The last time i was at the shop they said it may...


the screeching noise may be your belts beeing loose or cracked and dry. the fact that the check engine light is on and the car smells like gas may mean that you are not firing on all 6 cylinders and thats why it shakes and also you are just dumping the fuel into the cylined but its not getting burned. you may need plugs or maybe a coil. you need to find out what is the code number and start from there.

Enigine shaking and rough take off


If the plug wires were off there's a good chance that you have fouled a spark plug or two causing the engine to misfire making it shake. It sounds like a good tune-up might be in order.

It sounds as if you have a cylinder missfire. It may be caused from a bad spark plug or plug wire, it may also be a faulty coil. I would start by having these items checked, if they check out ok then proceed with a compression test on all cylinders.
