Hi I have a lancer 2002 and my car is shaking when I am stop and when I drive. I change both sensor and fuel injector now and it's still doing the same thing. Do you kno what it could be? I was told it was a hairline crack on my head gasket but my car is not overheating?

What codes? What sensors did you change and why? Is it the motor or when you are stopping?

One code came out for slow leak on catolic converter and two came out for heated sensor and another came out for fuel injector 1-4. I change it bc that what I was told to do. It's the motor the my exhaust is shaking in the back. It's when the car is still and when I press the petal and it's shakes and hesate.

There is no code for leak at cat.
The heated o2 sensor, which one? Did you check the fuses as they are common when you have 1 bad sensor.

Once again, what were the code numbers? We need them to further help you. A code never identifes an bad part, just a failed system

I would go on what a real shop tells you. They are the pros and they will tell you the failure instead of guessing the failure and spending money you dont need to spend.
