Q: It sometimes shakes while driving.

asked by on

It doesn't always do this, but sometimes as I'm driving and the car shifts into 2nd. The car will start shaking it feels as it comes from the engine bay area but I shakes the whole car. It stops when I was off the gas. When I re-apply the gas it doesn't shake again. My check engine light isn't on when the car is started, but it comes on after a bit of driving. Sometimes it comes on as the car starts shaking or before it shakes. The code it gives is for a bad 02 sensor. Other than that shake the car is perfect
