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

'97 volvo 960, Orange W-mode arrow blinking, then lost power. What is wrong?


The usual cause of this is a bad PNP switch or gear position sensor.
The "W" is flashing because the transmission control module is stuck in the Winter mode. If you are not familiar with sensor, I suggest you go and have the transmission codes read and reset to begin with and then post back the results.

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.

Hi R, As the vehicle started after replacing the oxygen sensor I don't believe the two problems are linked. Have your mechanic carry out a diagnostic scan and we'll go on from there. As a matter of interest, why did you replace the oxygen sensor? Regards John

Distributor sensor replaced but car started to shake


If the sensor is in the dist, the dist shaft could be worn and slowly damaging the new sensor.
Could also be a new problem.

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.
