Shakes or Wobbles problem
2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 88000 miles
My car kind of shakes and wobbles or kind of does a putt putt action when I'm at an idle or just trying to start off. It's fine when Im going at a higher speed down the road.
There are times when I'm backing up or just trying to start off my car shuts off on me at an idle.
Last few days when Im driving down the road my emergency brake light will flash on, and I know that my emergency brake is not on.
My engine light is on, but I know that's because my gas cap needs to be changed because it doesn't have a good seal.
I've had the car hooked up to the computer and it has given me several different options such as spark plugs, egr, etc. My friend says it acts like the cadillac convertor. I need to know what the possibilities would be of what is wrong so I know what to fix, I don't have money for process of elimination, since I've already done that twice now with my car. I've already eliminated the spark plugs, and that wasn't the problem, so I know it's a bigger one.
When I bought my car about 2 or so years ago, the owner I bought it from said they had fixed the egr valve already, could it have gone bad again that quickly, I have no idea. But I need an answer.
If there is anything else you need to know to provide an answer let me know.
have the same problem?
