Engine is shaking, pulsating or vibrating Inspection Service

Any unusual shaking or vibrating forces coming from the engine is cause for concern. It could be something as simple as old spark plugs producing an uneven power delivery, it could be something serious like worn or broken engine mounts, or it could be even more serious in the case of internal engine damage.

Common reasons for this to happen:

Most often, one of the following components is at fault:

  • Old and worn spark plugs and wires (most commonly the issue)

  • Loose or disconnected hoses on and around the engine (not the coolant hoses that go to and from the radiator) are frequently culprits behind intermittent engine operation.

  • Loose connections at the positive and negative battery terminals

  • Very dirty or clogged air filters can also cause your engine to underperform.

  • Loose timing belts are another likely cause. A mechanic will check these and replace them if they appear loose and worn. To check for engine-mount problems, the mechanic may try shifting from "neutral" to "drive" and back, while the engine is running. If the vibrations disappear or reduce dramatically in "neutral," it’s likely that you need new engine mounts.

What to expect:

A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the shaky engine, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs.

How important is this service?

Given the range of the severity of potential issues, from faulty spark plugs to weak motor mounts, it's important to have a mechanic provide a thorough inspection as soon as possible.

Where do I start...my engine was vibrating was a bit worried all that when away after seeing STEVE for the first 10 minutes..absolutely beyond amazing. He was on time, very polite, and extremely knowledgeable. He went WAY above and beyond with my 2015 Camry.

My experience with Steve was an excellent one. I consider him to be one of the most honest, knowledgable mechanics I've dealt with. He is very straightforward and knows what he's talking about. He will not screw you over at all and puts his attention to the issue at hand. I highly recommend you pick Steve if you are looking for a mechanic to help you with your car.

I was quite pleased, he got right on it and assessed the problem. His assessment made sense to me and if it is the correct diagnosis I will give him a 5 star rating.
