Car Shaking Problems

Car shaking problems are usually the results of mechanical problems. Out of adjustment tires or suspension will make the car shake after reaching a certain speed. Warped brake rotors will also make the car shake when it’s slowing down.

Car shakes then stops when at a light it is worse when AC is on what could it be?

Possible cause poor fuel pressure. Replace fuel filter first. Doesn't solve problem check fuel presure. Need to know what kind of car you have for futher diagnostics. You're fuel pump may be bad. There are other things that can cause this but need more information.

Your car may be equipped with an Air Conditioning Idle Valve which increases idle speed when the air conditioning compressor engages to compensate for the greater power required to run it. If the A/C Idle Valve is not functioning properly and switching on, then the A/C compressor needs more rpms than your motor is producing at standard idle, and pulling power from the engine itself.

my car does the same 93 maxima se manual transmission. I checked and found out that two of the cylinders are not working so the car is running on 4 cylinders. And that's why the car shakes when the a/c is on not enough power. I plan to either wait till the car gives up or buy a rebuilt engine.

Clean the IAC valve. I had the same problem and I did tune up, changed fuel filter but it still remained same. Then I opened the IAC valve from the throttle body and cleaned it's dust using a Carb cleaner (walmart) and from the very next ride, the AC went normal.. even when idle.

It could be your idle control motor (or servo kit), it's part of the fuel induction system and basically regulates air intake. (A new idle control motor should run you about about $200). I had to replace this on my Mitsubishi it cost me $183 to do it myself, which is alot better than what the mechanic wanted ($670.00!!!!)

What causes a car to vibrate when idling and moving?

Car engines are demanding and require proper care to be taken. Failure to do so can result in problems with fuel, ignition, emissions, and other various systems. A vehicle is said to be idling when it has sufficient power to work the steering or other components but not enough to move the vehicle itself.

What are Symptoms bad ignition coil?

Sadly this as it happened to me yesterday after I took my son to school!! :(


The whole of car will shake and the engine will rattle (open your bonnet and you will see it shake violently all over the place) also your engine will be very noisy, it will struggle up a hill or any slight incline and will not go over the speed of 25mph no matter how much you press the accelerator!


*REMEMBER* when replacing ignition coils make sure you replace it's pair!

for example

number 1 went so you need to replace number 4
number 2 you'll have to replace number 3

with mine number 4 went so I had to replace number 1 too and it's possible that 2 and 3 are going to follow :(


***I believe the previous answer was referring to spark plugs, not sure.
But I recently had to replace the ignition coil in my 92 Chevy Blazer. It really didn't give any signs of failure except that now and again the vehicle would shut off and take a few minutes to restart. I just bought the truck about 3 weeks ago and am still workin on it as there are a few things that are still not right, for example when i got it none of the vacuum hoses were hooked up.
Anyway, back to your question...the day my ignition coil went out and left me stranded I was lucky to have a Haynes repair manual in the truck with me. So after 30 mins of doodling under the hood I decided to check the coil pack. The Haynes manual gives a walk through for checking your ignition coil. Besides the few tools required to remove the coil you will need an ohm meter. There are 4 different test that can be performed with a meter. I was also lucky to have a meter with me and an Advance Auto a block away. $28.00 and 20 mins later, I had it reinstalled and haven't had any issues with the truck not starting.
*Tip: if you have to replace the ignition coil, and if it's like mine- the replacement will not come with a mounting bracket. You will have to reuse the one off the original. The new one will come with small bolts though. The original mounting bracket is usually fixed onto the coil pack via 2 pins that are pressed on. I simply used a sturdy screwdriver and hammer to break the head of the pins off and it will slide free.

Hope that helped.

Why does your car shake when you turn it off?

Movements in your car's motor causes your car to move slightly from side to side. When the engine is running, the movements are so fast that the car is balanced - it doesn't have a chance to move to one side before the opposite force moves it back the other way. When you turn the engine off, these forces slow down and as the engine stops running the forces from side to side get slower until they actually move the car for a moment - and it shakes from one side to the other until the engine stops.

What problem with my tires can cause my car to be unlevel?

The tires could be unevenly inflated from one another. Also you could have 'shimmy' where your brakes or axle cause the car to veer slightly, which could also affect tire wear and steering, alignment and vertical balance. Start with properly inflating your tires, then get them rotated and balanced-- with any luck that could be all that you require.

Where can I get my tires balanced, rotated and aligned?

If you are going to get your tires rotated you should also align and balance them. The reason for this is to make sure nothing is out of place. You can get this done at places like AutoZone.

Can a bent rim be repaired easily?

It depends how badly the rim is bent; you do not want to heat the rim to shape it correctly as that will cause weakening in the durability. Some dents can be taken out at the location you purchased the wheel from initially.

How is a steering box stabilizer a diesel performance product?

The steering stabilizer helps prevent your car from wandering all over the road at high speeds. The wobble on your car is typically from the excessive shaft play in the steering box, so its mainly a precaution.

What should I know before having the rotors on my car replaced?

When having the rotors on your car replaced, ask for a higher quality metal type of rotor. Inferior types can squeak and not dissipate heat well, causing problems sooner than you'd expect them to.

A rotor must be replaced, instead of resurfaced, once the thickness specifications for the automobile and rotor brand are not being met. In Addition, if a rotor is cracked, warped, already resurfaced, or otherwise damaged it must be replaced. Many times drums, pads, and other automobile parts will have to be replaced if the mechanic sees problems once the old rotor is removed. A rotor replacement should not take more than one day and should not cost more than $100 for parts and labor at home, or over $400 at a repair shop.

How much to fix it the shaky wheel?

From my experience with this problem it isn't the steering wheel that is shaking but your U joints could be bad or something else under the car. Get it to a mechanic. Can't give a cost for this.

When stopped my 2003 Corolla makes a rough vibration. If I shift into neutral the vibration stops. Is this a transmission problem (It's an automatic)?

I doubt it is a transmission problem. It sounds like the engine is in need of some attention maybe even some motor mounts.
