Many things could cause an engine to shake. One, for example, would be low coolant or oil levels.

Most definitely. Any miss will cause the engine to shake. A vacuum leak will also cause this.

I would check the air filter first. If the filter is clean you need to clean the throttle body.

There are several things that can cause your 1995 Chevrolet Blazer to shake when accelerating. Bad spark plugs and spark plug wires can cause the vehicle to shake. Tuning up the engine may eliminate the problem.

Start with a good tuneup and injector cleaning. A compression test would tell you the condition of th valves and rings.

No. It would cause the check engine light to illuminate and fail an emissions test but it would start and run.

No,but tires out of balance will cause this. Have them balanced and rotated.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

If the check engine light is illuminated, start with scanning for codes.

User Avatar

It would cause light to refract differently because the angle at which the light hits the glass block would alter and there for the way the light refracts would also alter.

The light should be on before starting, and for 3 seconds after starting, as a bulb check.

I have a 2000 olds alero and the signal light only work sometimes, What would cause that?

User Avatar

A faulty gas cap could cause the check engine light to come on but it would not cause a rough idle or engine noises. Start with having your local auto parts store read the codes. The codes will help determine why the check engine light is on.

your throttle body could be sticking i'd start by cleaning that
