Troubleshoot code P1494:
A little details about my car:
1997 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl.
It shakes violently when sitting idle while in "drive".
(I was told it could be the engine mount.) I really want this fixed but I don't know what could be causing it.
Odometer and RPM gauge don't work until I drive my car for about 10-20 miles.
(I was told it could just be faulty fuses or bad wiring.)
The guy at autozone said the check engine light code he gave me could be any of the three possibilities.
1. Leak detection pump defective
2. Open or shorted circuit condition
3. Solenoid defective (I have no idea what this is or what it does, so therefore, I have no idea what it means.)
Overall, the guy at autozone said that there really isn't anything wrong with my car that will leave me stranded on the side of the road. However, if I don't get this fixed I won't have great gas milage.
I guess my questions would be with the details given about my car, what would most likely be the problem with the troubleshooting code? Also, what could be causing the violent shaking and what should I be looking at to get that fixed?
