in order for car to turn on the engin shakes real hard
im wondering if im damaging my car by driving it. I can only get one good start out of
it first thing in the morning. after that i can turn the key and u hear the poping going
and the sound like its about to turn on and it dont. 2nd time i add gass when i hear it
about to kick on and it catches and dies. then this always works and its scary, i turn
the key and just hold it i hear it catching and it sounds like its about to choke engine
shakes real hard and the car starts and stays on. am i damaging my car doing that?
You could be hurting it,have you serviced it lately,meaning plug,s wire,s?
yes we did very recent they changed the wires also
Did it run this way before replacing the plug,s and wire,s ?
yes, it had issue starting but not to the point the engine must shake to start. maybe i have a loose belt or something .
No lose belt wont do this,could be bad fuel in tank,or weak fuel pump,meaning not getting good fuel pressure at fuel rail,or could be a bad fuel injector.
If your engine light is on,go have it scanned,will give you and ides of the issue you are having.
theres no engine light , but ill get it checked anyways i dont want any more damage in it if its hurting it. thank u so much for all the advice it helps alot.
You are welcome.
