Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central. Please make sure to let me know exactly what is needed from me so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service. The shimmy so far seems to be a possible torque converter clutch slipping concern. For the warning lights maybe a wheel speed sensor wiring that is damaged or a sensor not seated well or a tone ring cracked and making a wheel speed sensor read wrong. Do you have access to a scan tool? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button. Please make sure to select one and press submit. I am not compensated by the website unless a customer rates. Rating only pays me from the deposit you have already made, it does not charge you more, nor close the post. Also all follow ups are free and welcome.Thanks Chris

I dont have a scan tool. But i need one. Do you have any suggestions? Im not much of a mechanic but i try to do it myself if it seems within my skill set. Skill set is youtube.

A good scan tool is preferred, but used would be okay. There are many on ebay. A high level Bosch brand can do all of these checks and they are under 500$ new.
