I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.I'm sorry for the delay, there aren't slot of mechanics on at this time.So if you still need help I'll try.No don't use starting fluid. Throttle body cleaner, brake cleaner or carb cleaner can be used tho.
Does it only vibrate and shimmy at low speed or rpm? Or high speed/rpm?And has the cap and rotor and plugs been changed along with the wires?Let me knowThanks
Expert:  Master Auto Tech. replied 1 year ago.
Sorry just Reread your post. Plugs and wires were done. And yours has a coil not cap and rotor.So let me know about when it does it most.Also have you been able to check the fuel pressure?
