A bit of a problem

Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you would have an idea about a problem I ran into yesterday...

Driving back from school in Vermont, I made it to Massachusetts and all of a sudden, whenever i tried to accelerate, my car would start shaking but would cruise down the highway just fine. I made it to Connecticut and then my Check Engine light started blinking and the shaking got worse. So I had it towed.

I was thinking it might be a fuel problem like the filter or injectors, but if any of you guys had any ideas on what i'm looking at here it would be a great help. Thanks...

Re: A bit of a problem

Use your tuner, and see what the code is from the check engine light

I would, but its not throwing a code anymore, but the problem is still there. I've never had anything like this before.

I think you'll find a blinking light will be bad plug wires.

Re: A bit of a problem

i have somewhat of a similar problem except its not the whole car its coming from like the clutch pedal or somewhere down there. when i brake it starts shaking underneath and it does this loud rattling sound. i thought it might be the front rotors but it wasnt. what could it be? would it be something thats lose and it only does it when my car is warmed up already but not before. if ya got any ideas it would help me alot thanks
