ONCE THAT NEEDLE WOULD DROP TO 0 MY CAR WOULD SHAKE REALLY BAD AND COMPLETELY SHUT OFF.AFTER 3 MECHANICS AND ALOT OF MONEY SPENT, THEY WERE ABLE TO FIX IT. NOW 3 MONTHS LATER,IM STILL HAVING THE PROBLEM LAST WEEK IT STARTED DOING THE SAME THING WITH THE DIFFRENCE THAT IT HAS NOT SHUT OFF.

What did the mechanics do to fix it, they may have just fixed the symptom not the problem. When my car broke earlier this year it would slow down and shake bad but once it cut off it didn't come back on. My mechanic said my car had jumped time and something inside broke and knocked the piston out of place. You may just need a new timing or balance belt.
