Why does my vehicle shake when idling?

                                                                   As the vehicle is sitting at an idle and starts to shake can be frightening. One of the most common issue that causes shaking at idle is loose engine mounts. Engine mounts are the connections between the engine and the vehicle. Other causes can be faulty fuel injectors, worn out spark plugs, or even a bad timing belt. The engine troubles may be corrected by a simple fuel system cleaning however some issues may require more of an extensive repair.  Call us today to schedule an appointment for us to inspect your vehicle and get it running in tip top shape.
