MY VAN IS SHAKING WHEN STOPPED.

1999 Chrysler Town and Country • 187,000 miles

Every time I slow down or come to a complete stop, my van shakes and has a little trouble taking off again. I've tried putting it in neutral at stop lights and it helps some but it still shakes quite a bit. Any idea what could be wrong?

If the shaking is only felt while the van is still moving and you're pressing the brake pedal, that is due to warped brake rotors. They can be machined or replaced. If the shaking even occurs while the van is standing still, that is an engine misfire condition. Spark plugs and wires are the most common cause of that.
