This sounds like a blown headgasket, which is not good. Pull the spark plugs and look to see if any are wet after the motor has run for a minute or so with coolant in it, or have a compression check done, that will find the problem. If it isn't the headgasket, it could be the intake manifold cracked, or the gasket there.

Either way, good luck.

My 2000 ford Expedition XLT just started shaking & Engine light came on. I checked the Oil ,Transmission Oil , Anti freeze, brake fluid, power steering oil, & all that was good. Still shakes what now?

That's good you checked all that, everyone who owns a car should check that on a regular basis. Now you need to listen to the check engine light, and it's a free service. Autozone, O'Reilleys, maybe all the national auto parts stores will scan your vehicle's engine computer for trouble codes as a free service. When the check engine light comes on with the engine running, it means the computer has identified a problem or fault and turned on the light. A scanner will retrieve the trouble codes when it is plugged into the vehicle's diagnostic port-fancy name for an electrical plug-in.

It's almost certain that the shaking and rough running are linked to the fault codes. Sometimes it takes a bit of knowledgeable detective work to figure out and get to the underlying cause. But you have to travel the electronic highway with today's vehicles, so get the trouble codes first. You can post them here on fixya for help, or just google the entire code number and be inundated with information.

5.9 Lt 2001 dodge durango has 20 percent compression on cylinder 7, ran really luggish and engine shakes alot, was told could drive on 7 out of 8 cylinders after a couple weeks of driving it, i started it...

it sounds to me that #7 has a valve train problem, wiped cam to broken rocker arm,bent pushrod,broken spring,bent valve or burnt bad! Or it has broken ring on piston. shouldnt have kept driving,very bad idea. pull valve cover to check valve train. I would start there before going deeper into motor.

Engine kept on stalling and blew oil all over the engine and leaking oil of the filter and now knocking sound when it cranks and shakes crazy? how can this fixed on a 1991 Buick riviera

Sounds like you have a front or rear oil seal gone.......A loss of oil will cause knocking and your crank bearings to go which will really knock....Hope this helps.

I have a 1994 Toyota Tercel that shakes alot when idling at stop light. I put it in nuetral to stop shaking, but it seems to be shaking alittle now in nuetral. What can it be?

sounds like bad spark plug wires, with the engine running in neutral and emergency brake on, spray the top of the engine over the spark plug wires with a spray bottle of water, if the engine runs worse or stalls, or you see small sparks, then its the spark plug wires.

I was driving heard a pinging sound from engine then car died

I need more info. Any trouble lights come on? Was it low on oil? Was the engine overheated? What was the coolant level? Were you towing at the time? Give me all you know and I can give you some ideas what it might be.
