Q: Car shaking after Check Engine light came on.

asked by on

My Check Engine light came on and the car is shaking.

It sounds like you have a cylinder misfiring. I would recommend having a technician come out and check the code on the car to determine what is causing the misfire. It could be a wide range of things such as spark plugs, wires, coil pack, fuel pump or fuel injectors or you could have a vacuum leak. The engine code will determine where the problem will be found.
