Q: My engine is shaking, how do I fix it? Something is also leaking from the bottom of the car.

asked by on

Everytime I turn on my car, the engine because to shake furiously, and it leaks oil from the bottom. How can I stop it from continuing just until I get home?

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Until you find where the oil leak is you will not make it very far before the engine seizes. Have one of our local mobile mechanics come to you and check the engine for you and pinpoint the oil leak. From what you’ve described it sounds like you have thrown a piston rod through the block. This is where the oil is coming from.
