Chevy Malibu keeps shaking when idling...

Asked by Nov 22, 2015 at 01:37 PM about the 1997 Chevrolet Malibu Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Whenever I'm at a stoplight, my car shakes... It's coming from the
engine, but I'm confused as to if its going to die or something... It
has a full tank of gas, and a somewhat new battery...

I suspect you have a major ignition miss. Is the check engine light on? Check to see if a spark plug wire was pulled off. I would replace all the spark plugs as a start.

The check engine light comes on occasionally, but i don't think it's the spark plugs...

See if a code can be read. You may have a coil going bad.
