Unhappy 2000 v6 shakes when i fully stop - help!

WHENEVER I COME TO A FULL STOP MY CAR SHAKES AND THE RPM DROPS TO ABOUT 600/700.

I DID A TUNE UP TWO DAYS AGO - AFTER I CHANGED THE SPARK PLUGS AND THE WIRES IT WAS FINE FOR THAT WHOLE DAY NO SHAKING. TODAY IT STARTED SHAKING AGAIN AND I DONT KNOW WHAT IT COULD BE. IT ONLY DOES IT WHEN I COME TO A STOP.

CAN ANYONE GIVE ME ANY IDEAS ON WHAT IT COULD BE?

Is it while your are stoping? or after you stop? If its after u stop, it could be a vacuum leak. Check all your lines. If it's while you are stopping its most likely warped rotors or an abs prob.

Re: 2000 v6 shakes when i fully stop - help!

clean your MAF air sensor really good (especially if you have a K&N or other oiled air filter element) and clean/replace your IAC (round cylinder thing near the throttle body on the upper intake) if the car wont idle very good, it should idle around 650-700 rpms, if the AC is on it might dip down now and again when sitting still.

Double check the spark plug wires, it may be a coil pack messed up and a couple cylinders are not firing

see if the rpms drop right as it shakes~ I am willing to bet they do (seems if they go unver 600-550 my old 01 v6 car would shake)

let me know

you can alter the idle of the car if that turns out to be the problem (as a temp fix I think your car has an idle screw that you can turn to make the car take a bit more gas, its near the throttle body) but it all points to the maf/iac~ sensors that control the idle~
