My car has been having issues, shaking at idle, especially when it is in drive. It also shakes when in neutral.
Also, the acceleration from first to second gear can be rough almost like it sticks for a second. This is less of a problem if I press the gas pedal down harder and accelerate fast.
I suspect the problem has to do with my throttle body and/or air mixture in the car that affects idle speed?
Also, I noticed that pressing the shift button down on the center console stick was harder than it used to be. However, this problem was noticed months after the other problems I previously mentioned.
What is strange is that the car does not have a noticeable shake when driving and operates fine in higher gears. There is no check engine light, but I do feel I am getting lower gas mileage.
Some possibilities I am considering:
1. Throttle body being dirty.
2. Air filter being dirty.
3. Transmission issues?
4. Numerous other factors influencing idle performance and also shifting into second gear.
I would very much appreciate your help and any suggestions you may have as to the problem.
have the same problem?
