Why is my 01 Chevy Malibu shaking real bad when I am stopped?

Asked by Sep 27, 2016 at 11:49 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Malibu Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Shakes bad like I am a bobble head when stopped.
Drives fine but when stopped no have to put it in
neutral or park to make it stop. It has had a tune
up. O2 sensor and mass air flow sensor replaced.
Code p0412 came up but car does not have air
pump. Also no exhaust leak and new muffler.

You said you had a tuneup done was it shaking before or after the tuneup ?

Motor mounts?

Before tune up then my dad put a new coil pack and he checked all plugs

Mounts are good.
