Q: Shaky engine.

asked by on

When starting first thing, my engine shakes.

How many miles are on your car? High mileage cars can have worn out ignition components causing a weak spark at startup or weak motor mounts might make vibrations more noticeable, I would recommend a mechanic from YourMechanic look into this. It seems like this happens regularly so this should be fairly easy to diagnose.
