Question about 2006 Lexus Is 250

1 Answer

Shaking when in Drive, but Idle

Over the past few months, every now and then when I come to a stop at a red light and sit idle for anywhere from 20 seconds to a few minutes, something in the engine causes a vibration to travel from the engine down through the car. This is only when I am not moving (i.e. not pushing on the accelerator) so I am thinking that there may be a problem with the pressure in the fuel line.

You may just need the throttle body cleaned.I have seen this quite a few times on Toyotas and it could transfer to the cousin.

Zack, did the Engine light come on?? If you can get it over to one of the big-box auto parts stores, get them to check for any codes. May be Throttle position sensor (TPS), cracked hoses at connections.

Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly


If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.

I have a 2006 jetta gli turbo with about 82000 miles on it about four months ago the check engine light came on but nothing noticeable was going on with my car or the drive. recently when it started...


Hi

You need to go to a shop with a code reader. The check engine light was telling you something and you need a code reader. Depending on which country you are in, if in the states autozone may have it for free.

Whatever initiated the light is now messing up the other parts of the car.

Hope that helps.

I have a 1994 with vortec 4.3 that shakes sometimes


Shakes how? While stopping? Or solely while idle, Engine light on?

If if shakes while stopping you need to check you're wheel hubs and or Suspension ,

Shakes at a light, You may have a bad fuel Injector, Check you're psi in you're fuel pump, A TPS would cause low idle or sometimes high idle, With low idle and a bad motor mount it would shake,

I know theres a few things I'm missing but,.. I have a major Headache atm so I'll get back to you with some more, when i can think better. :)
