Check the brakes it may be a rotor distortion on front brakes. Then check for to make the lug nuts are tight on the wheel. Also check to see if the tires are out of round.

Sir
i checked the break and rotors with axle its all good.
Last night it started stalling when revs coming down at idle it goes till 400 and again at 700 and some times engine stall.
At the time of driving its all good no misfire or jerks.
This problem is usually in neutral or sometimes when stopping.

Sir I m really fed up of this issue. Not a single mechanic here knows what the problem is. One of them said change the throttle body and another said change the MAF sensor.
I already changed the Timing control solenoid.

:(

Your only choice is to scan for codes and check fuel pressure with a gauge. If you are in a foreign country it may not be to easy. Clean throttle plate with choke cleaner on both sides and check for a vacuum leak like broken line/cracked etc. Because this is a Japanese car it may need an adapter or pro model scanner to check fuel pressure. You may have a small misfire that straightens out after a few miles like a piece of carbon on spark plug so check for that.

After accelerating past 40 MPH car starts shaking but only when accelerating. I ll be going 65 MPH and the whole car will be shaking but as soon as I let go of the gas it stops shaking. Nothing is showing up on the engine light about this. What could it be?

Hello,

This could be a motor or trans axle mount. If the motor or transmission mounts become loose or malfunction the the dampering effect that they provide will no longer be there. As the RPM's and the load on the engine/transmission increase then so would the vibrations. When you let off on the accelerator pedal, the load will also go away and that could be why the vibration then smooths out.
I have included factory diagnostic troubleshooting guide for your vehicle's motor mounts in the diagrams down below. Please go through this guide and get back to us with what you find out.

Thanks.

I got my brakes replaced and my rotors smoothed out because they were warped and the car was shaking really bad. Two weeks after I got new brake pads put on it started shaking again. They said that my rotors were warped again. The brake pads I had put on were the ceramic ones so I know it couldnt have been too hard of a brake pad. I put new rotors and new ceramic pads on but i'm afraid it will do it again in a few weeks. They checked my calipers and said they are fine. The only thing they found was that my front axels have some freeplay in them. Can that be causing my pads to warp my rotors? And could that be what is causing the shaking?

Hi jabirkholz,

If the vibration occurs without the brakes being applied, then it is not the rotor that is causing it.

Bad inner CV joint can cause vibrations, especially during light acceleration at the speed mentioned.

Problem 1: You may want to check the front wheel bearings. While you are at it, it would hurt to check your suspension and steering parts: ball joints, tie rod ends, struts, sway bar links and bushings.

Problem 2: It needs to be scanned by a scan tool capable of SRS (Supplemental Restraint System). Generic OBD-II scanner won't do.

My car shakes badly when driving so much that at first I thought it was bad tires, got new ones, still shakes, then they said it was struts, got new ones, but it still rides rough and shakes even while sitting still at the light. What can this be?

Hi kpmax2001,

If it is not the mountings, then you need to check for misfiring from the engine.

Is the check engine light showing?
