I was accelerating quickly when I heard a popping sound. It was in the right front engine area. It rattled for about 5 minutes - then stopped. Then my car started shaking. What caused this and what I should do?
The noise you heard may have been the timing chain rattling; the chain may have jumped and a valve hit the piston, so it is misfiring and running rough.
I would have a mechanic inspect your car's shaking issue to see if this is what happened, or if you are having a different problem.
