Why does a 2012 civic shake when it's not moving and I change the gear? Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the [transmission](/topics-transmission-honda/)? Have you checked the brake switch? It's about 8 years old with 177000 miles. Not yet. Where would I check? Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Civic yourself? What have you tried so far? Yes. I changed the spark plugs and coils. Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? When it's in park, it feels a bit accelerated. The rpm lower when I put it in gear. Thanks.

Hi. Not that I can tell.

Have your vehicle scanned for trouble codes, even if the light is not on a code can be stored in the computer's memory. Also check the throttle body and see if it is dirty with carbon. Clean as needed.

Ok, thank you.
