Does anyone else have this problem? When car is in idle, the entire car shakes (not to mention it is extremely loud). Diagnostic tests have shown nothing is wrong. I can't imagine this is normal for a 3 year old car. It seems to be getting worse as well. Is there anything I could check that a diagnostic test does not look for?
I think they are just poorly put together, I rode in a couple that had the shakes and they were all newer
That is what I get for going cheap! Thanks!
Ive never experienced that with those cars. :doh:
Have your plugs and plug wires changed.
yes. have a compression/leakdown test done. those 1.9 and 2.0 ford 4 cyl's have had lots of problems w/ the powdered steel valve seats cracking and falling into the cylinder. that has the potential to make it idle crappy and not set a code. if this is the problem and you catch it early (before the seat drops into the cylinder and kills the piston and valve) you can have stainless seats put in and save the motor...
I have the same problem with my 2002 Ford ZX2 with the rough idle. Except mine has been like that since day one when there were only 8 miles on the car. Do you have an automatic transmission? If so, do you have problems when your car is driving in reverse?
I don't think he's gonna answer you bud.
