Car shacks when its in park and rpm goes high then low also coolant is leaking every time I drive it check engine light flashes its been five days like this
Only when its in park it does that for a few seconds and then it stops
Car died while driving would not restart change timing chain test spark and fuel I have it it sounds like no compression 1999 3.4 Alero no light come on no codes
Installed water pump and thermostat now car idles fast and tries to die when you stop also sounds rough when idling. Could i have the timing off? It didn't sound this way before,although it would idle rough at stop lights but never die.The only time it did was when it over heated and it shut itself down.
Turns of the key for it to start
When I switch from park to drive, it revs up like I am in park, my car moves a little bit when I do it but I do not want to blow up my engine, what could it be?
In neutral its just a little vibration , but when in drive it shakes pretty bad , thr motor mounts look ok amd intact , there is a hissing sound coming from underneath , could this be a small vacuum leak and that is the reason for shaking?
I have pictures
Dealer I bought it from years ago said the bushings were bad on it, but I feel like there could be more than that (dealer was kinda... scummy). Has gotten worse over the years (haven't been able to afford a repair yet, but I may soon).
