Driving and was passing at 65 miles an hour. Honda civic 2001 started to shake and the check engine light came on. Pulled over and stopped the car. Turned it back on and it drove fine except the check engine light is still on. Also earlier this week had it in for inspection and mechanic put on A new timing belt and water pump. Could it be related.

I have 2000 Avalon xls. i faced several problems with the check engine light. It came on and my engine started shacking hardly for several seconds and sometimes minutes. i did a check and the computer came with many problems; oxygen sensor; miss fire. I did clean the injectors and replaced the air filter and the problem was solved but the check engine light did not stop. Recently the engine started shaking again and the check engine light now is flashing. What should I do to solve this problem?

I have a Mazda MPV 2004 van that recently had the check engine light come on. Over time, the van started to **** and shake whenever idling in Drive. It shakes for few seconds, idles smoothly, then starts shaking again over a continuous cycle. Anytime we drop it down to third or throw it in park, the shaking instantly stops. We took it up to Autozone and it came back with a P0102 code. They recommended try cleaning out the MAF sensor with some canned cleaner and also changing the air filter. We d

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy Sedan and my check engine light is on. Sometimes when I pull out into traffic and push on the gas too hard then stop at a red light, my check engine light starts blinking and the car starts shaking. If I pull over and sit for a minute the car goes back to normal and drives fine after. If I don't let off the gas to let it change gear (and this is Auto trans) it shoots up to 4 or 5k rpms and the shaking starts again and the light starts blinking again, etc. Had the sens

The check engine light comes on and off on my 06 stratus. the first time it came on was about 2 months ago. I took it to the shop and they said I had steped on the gas to hard and had forced the vacuum, but that the car did not have any problems. The light was off. After 2 months, on a 6 hour trip, the light came back on and this time the car started to shake. at first it shook every 20 mins or so, after a while it was like every 5 mins. The next morning i started the car, check engine light was

Hi! Just bought a 99 jeep grand Cherokee, 4.7 V8. The day after I drove it off the lot it stalled as I was braking approaching a stop light. It started right back up but noticed it missing at stop lights afterwards. On the way home from work that same day, the check engine light came on. I went to autozone to check, I was told it was the pre converter oxygen sensor. I replaced that sensor yesterday morning, started it up, engine light was gone & she idled nice & smooth, no missing or fluctuating

I have a 2004 Stratus that has an intermittent issue while accelerating. The check engine light comes on and the car starts to stutter. If I turn off the engine and turn it back on the engine light remains, but the stuttering stops. About two days later the check engine light goes off, and then the next day it starts all over again. The code for the engine light is the cam sensor, but that has been replaced twice now, the pcv valve has been replace, and the timing belt has also been changed.


With what you changed and the fact that it is a 2004, have you had a tune up in awhile? Little things like a clogged fuel filter or plugged air filter cause this too. Make sure you have no vaccum leaks on your hoses. Visually check the coil wires and ... 2004 Dodge Stratus

I have a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. One and a hlaf years ago had the MAF & EGR valve replaced, 1 month later another MAF put in.

Engine light came back on next day and it ws the intake manifold & gasket...had them replaced. Engine light came on yesterday on my way home, I made one stop and could not g

Two weeks ago when i went to drive my 2004 Oldsmobile Alero..it was hesitating and started to shake if i went above 25. Then the service engine light came on and was blinking at me. I kept it under 20 and was able to go about a mile before it shut off. The light went off for like 30 seconds then came back on again just before it shut off. After sitting for a day it did start back up and was blowing a little bit of black smoke and ran long enough to get it on a car trailer. We hooked it up to a c

My 2000 Dodge Neon had the Check Engine light go on last night. And it was still on this morning. When I started driving it, it would shake when I came to a stop. I also noticed that the longer I drove it the light started flashing. I took it to Jiffy Lube to see if they knew what was wrong. They ran a check and it came up with Error Code P0202.
