Hey Amy==It depends on the make, and which engine you have. I would check the bolts on the a/c compressor, and the belt for correct tension and if it is a serpentine belt check it for cracks and brittelness. Goodluck. Joe

Yes, bad spark pugs or plug wires can cause the engine cylinder to misfire which will cause the engine to vibrate.

I believe it's called sympathetic vibration.

Running out of gas my certainly be a cause for the check engine light to come on. It could also be an assortment of other issues.

An engine usually has a higher idle speed when the ac is running. If the high speed idle does not operate then the ac will cause the engine to stall.

The upper engine mount is collapsed. On the passenger side by the coolant reservoir look at the mount If you see 1/4 inch or more gap the mount is collapsed and will cause the whole car to vibrate

Not having one, will allow particles in and effect your engine and cause damage and cause your engine to stop running. It can also be dangerous and cause an engine fire.

Moisture in the exhaust, or a cold running engine.

No it will not. YOU have another problem.

No, but it can cause severe engine damage if you keep running the engine.

Yes, and disconnecting the battery while the engine is running can severely damage the computers

Smaller tires should not cause the check engine light to come on. Smaller tires will cause the speedometer to be off.

A bad compressor belt can cause a whistling noise while running the air conditioner. A bad engine can also cause this noise.

User Avatar

No, but you need to make sure that whenever you decide to run that engine in a car you have oil in it.

No, but if the gap is to large. the engine will not start.... You may have a problem with you carborator. You can get a gap measurment from Orileys, Auto Zone. The cost Mabye 2 dollars.

That would cause a forced vibration; the tuning fork will make the table vibrate, or part of it, and thus, there is more surface to make the air vibrate.That would cause a forced vibration; the tuning fork will make the table vibrate, or part of it, and thus, there is more surface to make the air vibrate.That would cause a forced vibration; the tuning fork will make the table vibrate, or part of it, and thus, there is more surface to make the air vibrate.That would cause a forced vibration; the tuning fork will make the table vibrate, or part of it, and thus, there is more surface to make the air vibrate.

It would not be a good idea. First it is illegal, second it can actually cause the computer to over adjust fuel and ignition timing and cause running issues.It would not be a good idea.

A bad EGR valve should not cause the engine to not start. There is most likely another problem that is causing the engine to not start.

You can feel the engine running inside the car not necessarily vibration but it can cause vibration but for sure you can feel the engine running at your foot.

A bad fuel injector can cause an engine to continue running, for a few seconds, after the engine to shut off. The engine continues to run because of excessive fuel in a piston.
