I also wish someone would answer this question as my 1997 Ford contour does the same thing. It shakes and vibrates very bad when it idles and it idles really low. They set the idle up to make it so it wouldn't die so now when I start it it revs up really bad then it idles down then it idles down to low and shakes I also wish someone would answer this question as my 1997 Ford contour does the same thing.

On my Chevy truck it idles high when its low on antifreeze but if its not that more than likely its usually a vacuum line loose or cracked. good luck.
Sounds like a motor mount or a transmission problem.......
what causes a roaring sound in a 2004 pontiac sunfire after it warms up? it runs great and idles great and quiet except for this.Anonymously
A leaky, disconnected or missing vacuum hose can produce the surging you're referring to. Check your tubing.
Shakes and shimmies? Try getting your tires balanced and your front end aligned. That might help.
sounds like you have a leaky intake manifold
check your idle controle moter. it is probably crudded up or not wotking.
A 1998 Honda Civic shakes when it idles usually due to worn engine mounts. Open the hood and check the engine mounts. See if they are either cracked or brittle. Since the mounts can not absorb the vibrations it will be felt in the cabin.
You have a misfire - engine related, not tranny...get the engine checked/tuned up...etc... dave
try replacing the fuel filter
Ask this question again specifying what the car is.
I'd start with a basic tuneup if it has not been done in awhile. Then I'd clean the fuel injectors.
Replace the oil sensor. Check the price at dealer I paid $11 a couple of years ago.
My 1990 idles at about 850 and with the ac on 1100
idles at 3000 will not go down 1993 grand prix gtp
Cinnamon Idles was born on October 26, 1975, in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
It sounds like you may of mixed up plug wires when you put them back on. Oil filter will not have anything to do with the way your car idles.
a/c blows warm air when idles cold when running
Matinee Idles - 1922 was released on: USA: 4 September 1922
crankshaft sensor going.
It could be a dirty air filter or a dirty throttle body.
The cast of Matinee Idles - 1922 includes: Neely Edwards as Nervy Ned
Rebuild it. If it's a 97, it must have close to 150k miles.
If it shakes real bad after you changed it, you may wanna check to see if its on there backwards.. not to insult anybodys intelligence but its easy to get it mixed up. Most fuel filters work in a single direction flow so if its backwards the flow will be messed up.
