Today I was driving, and went about 45 or so miles, and pulled off the highway to stop to let the kids use the restroom, and when I got back into the vehicle, put it in reverse, it started shaking, through it in drive and it seemed fine till I stopped at a stop sign. Drove a couple more miles, and whenever I idled at a stop light or sign, it shook really bad until I made it out of first gear. I let it sit for about 3.5 hours, and then started it back up, worked and sounded fine, drove the 45 miles back home, and the second I made it back, it started the problem again. And now it seems to shake on idle, and when I accelerate, it shakes and is rough until I get out of first gear. But then I can't fully accelerate, it seems to almost, "max out"(if you will) at 30 to 40mph.
Someone said it might be the coilpack.
I am not sure, but to me it seems to be a timed problem. I know it doesn't take 45 miles to get the car heated up, but that is somewhat when the problem starts.
Any ideas so I know where to begin would be great.
have the same problem?
