Asked by Aug 10, 2016 at 11:45 PM about the 2003 Toyota ECHO 2 Dr STD Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi All,

As title says, my car that has 146k and had no major problem so far. Today
afternoon I went to the grocery, drove 3 miles, did a shopping for 10-15
minutes, came back, started to drive a car, and noticed a fine shaking. I
stopped at the red light, then at a 4-way stop, and put the stick shift into
neutral. Regardless the shift was in neutral or anything between 1 and 4,
the car continued to shake (it was like a fine tremor). I parked my car for
about 1-2 hours, went outside, restarted, same issue, and now the Check
Engine light came up. Any idea? I am taking my car to AutoZone to check
for the codes, but want to have some idea in advance what could cause the
problem. Is it possible that I have to change battery? The last time I
changed it was in November 2012, and I live in Texas (I know, I know...) :-(

Thank you in advance for your time and reply.

I wanted to add, I took my car to state inspection on 7/15/16, and no problem found.

Sounds like spark plugs. Have you changed them before?
