shaking/ shuttering

Asked by Jan 17, 2014 at 12:22 PM about the 2002 Ford Focus ZX5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 ford Focus auto. Every time i come to a stop the car shutters/shakes. it
gets worse when it warms up. It doesnt really do it if i put the car in neutral. but ss
soon as i put it into drive its starts shaking again. I also notice that when i turn my
head lights on it shakes or if i turn the heat on. is there anyone who can help and figure
out why it does this?

I think you have some broken mounts. Engine or transmission. Raise the hood,start it and put it in drive and reverse giving it gas while pushing the brake.See if the engine lunges forward or back. It will move a little when going back and forth but not a lot when normal.

yes it does. It does overheat if im in stop and go traffic. the fan is on, so not sure on that...
