Engine shakes and makes noise while going up incline or picking up speed

Answers :

Before you spend too much time figuring it out . Put the car in a dark place with hood open engine running , allow eyes to adjust to dark for about 10 minutes then look for glow on ignition wires. Careful not to get too close to moving parts since in the dark you can't see well
( precaution) you may see the high tension leak and locate it exactly which wire or location it is. John
It will almost surely be a faulty plug or spark plug wire. It's missing on one cylinder, and that causes it to shake when it needs power.

2006 Ford Taurus-35K miles. When engine is cold, loud pop occurs when putting into gear (D & R). Sounds like frame flex or strut housing shift from engine torque? Also, whine at rear when rolling at higher speeds. Previous tires and new ones make no difference. At low speeds, struts in rear are noisy when going over jagged bumps in road. Dealer claims all noises are normal and can't claim to duplicate "pop" noise, but, of course, it did it for me immediately upon picking it up.

I have a 1997 Ford F-150 Lariat, and when pulling a trailer it makes a chattering noise when the gas pedal is pressed down to pick up speed. When going up a hill it will not go passed 40 mph and starts to shift hard when pressing the gas pedal. In normal driving without a load and getting on a highway and picking up speed the first two shifts are hard and then smoothes out. The truck has around 130K of miles on it, mainly highway miles. What could the problem be?


If tranny is manual shift you may have a bearing and or bad gear. Try changing tranny fluid. Check manual for correct fluid may use tranny fluid rather than gear oil. I recommend using Royal Purple fluid or gear oil. This very expensive but will slic ... Ford F-150

Hi, I have a 2004 Ford Fiesta Zetec and all of a sudden I have a constant buzzing noise, coming from the dashboard. You can't pick up the noise from outside due for he engine noise, but its clear from the inside of the vehicle. The noise does not change depending of speed or direction, but it does match the engine noise. The noise sounds a bit computery, if that makes sense!! Like your playing a car racing game on the computer. I've just had the car in for it's m.o.t and it has passed. The mecha

1997 mercury mountaineer: There is a loud crunching noise coming from behind the drivers side front tire only when making right turns or going straight. the faster the speed the louder the noise. left turns make no noise. sounds like metal crunching and clanking on metal and you can feel the noise rumble in the car under your feet and in the steering wheel. I am not very mechanically inclined, but I am not mechanically stupid either, so any answer needs to be thorough please...

My car shakes and is very loud when idle, and when driving it is starting to make a loud, high-pitched whistling noise. i went on a trip and when i got to about 75 mph on the highway it felt like my arms were going to go numb from the constant shake. i recently have gotten an oil change, tune up, and had my tires balanced and rotated. i have gotten rear ended a few times in the past and backed into a tree a couple months ago. there are also really big speed bumps that i have to go over every day


Oh your not a "dumb" girl. Your tires may just be bad and need to be replaced, the tires could have what they call belt separation and that's when the steel belt in the tires are bad and the tires can no longer keep there shape. Check the tire pressu ... 2003 Dodge Neon

My wife nissan sentra 1993 still runs great but yesterday when she started the engine it start to make some grinding or rattling noise. The weather is about 50 degrees F. At times it will disappear, this noise will come and go. It doesn't seem to affect the performance. I drove it and runs ok, but the noise is in the same frequency with the engine speed. Need advice....

Hi All! I have a 2000 Mercury Sable, a DOHC 24 valve engine. I have an issue with 1,2,3 cylinders. They misfire especially when the car is cold. When the car starts initially, the RPMs go under a 1000 and the car shakes badly due to engine. There is also a gas odor once the car is initiated. Once I increase speed, for instance on the highway, the car is fine, but if the speed is unsteady and I have to make stops at the lights, the engine goes off and the car dies. On this model, any spark plug h

My 1999 e320 lost power as I was driving down the freeway. The check engine light came on and it would only go about 25 mph. I stopped, shut the engine off and restarted it a few minutes later. It ran perfect for about thirty minutes, then started bogging down again. now it has no power, shakes and it makes a deep straining sound kind of like the secondaries opening up on an old four barrel carb. No power, but not making any unhealthy noises from under the hood. I have been having a problem for

While I was driving my 2000 Ford Contour - the car was lurching when I pushed down on the gas... it lost speed f rom 60 mile per hour to 40mph hour. I was on a slight incline. When the incline went away the car started going faster. Any incline can make the engine stall.

Engine problem my van was ok until i started it the other day. the engine was making noise and would want to cut out unless the throttle is pushed. i changed the oil and added some detergent additives to clean up the lifters etc.. it is better than it was but it seems to have some vibrating going on as i accelerate at higher speeds. some sort of loss of power and ruff running have continued, but i can drive it. so what is wrong? the engine has about 220,000 miles and it is otherwise running good

I would just like some ideas for why my check engine light came on in my car. I have a 2006 Mazda 3, 5 speed with 91,000 miles on it. It isn't making any unusual noises, the oil change is up to date and all of the different fuels are at appropriate levels. The check engine light just popped on this weekend while driving about 65 miles an hour on the hwy and it won't go off.

1997 HOnda CRV - 148,000 mi. when excelerating from 40 -7- mph, a loud "thump, thump, thumping" begins. When foot is taken off gas the noise stops. The car does not shake. Local mechanic did not know what was wrong (although he verified that something indeed WAS wrong). Axcels, wheels & engine mount were checked and looked good. Noise appears louder when going up a hill or incline and is not constant while driving 0-35 miles distances.

The car will not accelerate; while driving at 65 mph on highway going up hill car started to slow and stall only going about 35-40 up the hill. once over the hill the car would not resume speed and maxed out at about 40 mph. it has always taken a little while to accelerate, but since this incident it will not accelerate past 40 mph and takes a very long time to get to that point. when revving up the engine at high rpm's the car makes a grinding hissing noise while in neutral.

Today i noticed that my car (2001 Cadillac STS) started making a buzzing noise (similar to the noise made when you put a card near your bicycle wheel to make it sound like an engine) that is quite noticeable at speeds of 45-60 Mph. So i took it for a drive to listen to it closer, and i noticed that the pitch of the sound went up as my speed increased. So i got to about 60 mph and put it in neutral and let the engine idle. but the noise stayed the same pitch and loudness. which makes me think i
