my car is starting to shake alot before its shuts off,it happens when i stop at a traffic check engine light came on.

The car has 97,000 miles and has been well maintained. I made a trip of about 220 miles this weekend and half way through the trip I now hear a rattling noise at 1,500 rpm as it goes from gear to gear as I speed up. At about 1,800 RPM it stops making any rattling noise. Any thoughts what might be causing this? I drove half of this trip and stopped for about 3 hours and when I continued on it started making that noise. Car seems to run fine but makes the noise. If I am sitting still without the transmission engaged it does not make that noise but the trans seems to be shifting ok.

after starting car when attempting to stop or turn the steering wheel there is a clunking noise that sounds as if it is coming from the steering colum.This occurs daily.

Just bought the car.A mechanic ran a jumper wire from the pink wire on the coil to the fuse block to make it start and stay running.Door locks have a random clicking to them like they are trying to unlock.Pink wire drops to 3 volts when car its trying to start so the jumper wire gives it constant 12 volts.Ignition switch and key have both been replaced.Now today the windows won't roll up.I have pulled op the wires to the BCM.Someone said it could be the pins on the BCM.How do i fix that
