My car vibrates when in idle or stopped. I notice that this happens after the car has been running for a while.

The check engine light came on so I took it to Auto Zone to read the codes. They printed me a report with no error codes. I asked them to repeat it and still nothing.

There are few messages that displays across my radio when I start up my car.
1. Service stability system
2. Service brake assist - ABS light is on. Is this a cause or effect of the stability system failure?
3. Service tire monitor -when I got my car, it had the wrong sized tires. I have since replaced the two rear tires with P255 60R17 but the two front tires are still incorrect. They are P245 60R17 and should be P235 65R17. Is it possible the previous owner disconnected the sensor to install the wrong tires?

Your help and advice is much appreciated!

Also when I feel my car it does not inmediately crank even when it still has gas in it. And for a v6 engine I think the gas consumption is too high.

I am noticing that the vibration gets worse when I turn my heat or air conditioning. It's more subtle than it sitting in idle without the air condition running. Sometimes it vibrates so hard that I have to hold the steering wheel to prevent it from shaking and sounding so loudly.

Will do. Do you think that's the issue with the fuel as well? When I fuel up for some reason my car will not crank. Could it be the O2 sensor?

It sounds like a weak fuel pump, have you had it replaced recently?

As it turns out the mass air flow sensor needed to be replaced.

As it turns out the mass air flow sensor needed to be replaced. It was causing the issue with the fuel tank pressure sensor performance.
