It maybe a leak in the intake manifold gasket.



if it shakes while your braking your front roters could be warped or if it shakes while your driving try balancing the tires at a tire shop.


You may have a ball joint going out or your wheels are unbalanced


you will need a front wheel alignment


while driving yur car reduces speed then pulls off with speed and backfires what can cause that


Carburator problems -- dirty gas -- water in gas


If it backfires while you are driving, the intake manifold bolts may be loose or the gasket may need to be replaced. If it backfires when you turn off the ignition, the fuel mixture is a little on the rich side.



If a Kawasaki 650 Prairie backfires and bogs down while driving, this may be due to old battery. It is best to change the battery and clean the filters, too.


Usually when the steering wheel shakes badly while driving it could mean a few things. If it shakes only when you are applying the brakes, this means you have warped rotors and they will need to be turned or replaced. If it shakes just while driving, it could be that you have 1 or more tires that are unbalanced. Check this first before proceeding. It can also indicate that a wheel alignment and perhaps steering linkage repairs are necessary.


Rotors are warped. Have them trued or replaced as necessary. Also replace the brake pads at the same time.


Could be a number of reasons: Worn-out shocks, wheels out of balance, worn-out tires (or all of the above)


Shakes and shimmies? Try getting your tires balanced and your front end aligned. That might help.


That is not advised. That would be similar to texting while driving, which is dangerous and generally illegal.


If your car shakes while underway, your tires have worn incorrectly from misalignment. If it shakes while in park or not moving, your engine is misfiring.


It normally means you have a bent wheel or tire out of balance. Have your tires rotated and balanced.


AnswerMore likely...if it shakes from side to side while driving I would strongly suspect a frozen upper or lower link in the rear suspension. Alignment issues will cause vibration but not side to side shaking.



If used correctly you may lose weight while taking diet shakes, but only if used in place and not along with meals. These shakes are considered by many as sugary milk shakes.


Does it have a miss? check plugs and wires. Also a possibility of a bad throttle position sensor.


Tire out of balance or a bent wheel. Also check the motor mounts; this model had problems with them.


Tire out of balance, bent wheel, defective tire, or loose lug nuts. Have the tires/wheels inspected, rotated, and balanced.
