Hi stephaniewsh,

Thank you for the donation.

Symptoms of the vibration indicates you have a possible fault with the cooling fans. Get them check.

If the gas cap is not fully closed or is leaking it can cause the CEL to indicate and no pressure when cap is opened. To find out if the CEL is related to the gas cap, the trouble codes should be retrieved.

GHet a free scan done at Autozone and come back with the EXCAT trouble code. DO NOT replace anything recommended after the scan without testing and confirming the part is faulty to avoid unnecessary replacement of parts.
