Q: Car shaking with power loss

asked by on

My car shakes when I drive it and it hardly has any power.

It sounds like your vehicle is experiencing noticeable drivability problems. As drivability problems can often be some of the most complex to diagnose, due to the fact that a single problem in one or more of the engine’s systems can cause the vehicle to suffer from drivability problems. I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the vehicle’s power loss issue, as there is a wide range of problems that can cause this condition.
