Hi Habitsi1982,
make sure that it's firing on all cylinders....Has any one played around with the firing order of the spark plugs?....I'm not sure what vehicle it is that you have.....If the engine check light comes on, the onboard management computer has picked up a fault....take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and that will tell you very quickly what the problem really is.

Regards

Is it an automatic or manual trans ?
An automatic should downshift when you push on the gas pedal. The shaking could be a miss-fire or lack of fuel. The noise could be a knock from the engine or something in the exhaust system.
The freaking jet noise could be an exhaust leak or something going on with the air cleaner or a vac leak.

My 2003 Dodge neon shakes pretty violently while in idle. The acceleration is also off, yesterday I tried to pull out of a gas station and it wouldn't accelerate past 10mph until i hit the brake a


Before you start checking and touching sesitive parts such as map sensors, and 02sensors, or even think of buying $40.00 - $100.00 parts, I'd suggest you scan over all of your vacume lines(hoses), just in case one of them has a hole,cut, or torn. That's what I experienced. My 84 GMC pick-up didn't pass inspection because the check engine light on, and idle was rough and shaking. Everyone was suggesting same parts as here, on my expense. I was a little sceptical on guessing $40.00-$100.00 parts. So the next day I was looking at my engine, and heard a small hissing noise. I followed the noise, and low and behold! A torn 1/2"x 3"-90 digree, $5.00 vacume hose, that was resting above the hot valve cover. Had a small burnt hole. I replaced it,disconnected battery,drove the truck about 45 miles. No ckeck eng. light,smooth idle, and past inspection. Good luck, Frank.

Acceleration problem with 93 toyota


I've had this happen more than once and it always turned out the the timing belt was off by one tooth.
I bought a used car in the 80s that had had its belt improperly replaced, told the dealer that the car had a problem, wouldn't tell them what was wrong and after ~ 20 minutes, they dropped the price to one I had offered, saving 34% off their price.I brought a couple of wrenches with me when I picked it up and drove two blocks and corrected the belt in <10 minutes.I drove it for 10 years and 150K miles before selling it.
Have the belt checked again.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

Check your spark plugs. or your distributer., You may have a fouled plug or faulty/worn cap and rotor. The spark plug wires too can cause probs.

You need to have your engine flushed and cleaned out. One or more of your spark plugs aint firing. You need to replace them all to include the wires as well. If you dont get your engine flushed, you could blow your engine up.

Shakes side2side under acceleration at 38-48 mpn only


Talked to Buick/GMC mechanic at the dealership claiming everyone was giving me different answers/things to replace. He said undoubtedly it was cv joint/half shaft. Changed driver's side, that fixed it. Another give away was it wasn't as bad when car was cold, but got worse as it drove a few minutes, i.e. everything got hot, expanded and therefore was looser.

The main clue was it wasn't RPM specific, bearings were okay and I didn't feel it in steering wheel so much as the whole car in a given RPM range despite gear (not the engine or front end of tranny, i.e. torque converter. Rotating tires had no effect.
