I have no idea what might be wrong with this car. I'll tell you what it's
doing, and hopefully someone can offer some suggestions.
Well, first, the water pump broke. I stupidly never fixed it and just kept
re-filling it every time I drove it for about 4 months. Well, finally one
night, I was driving it to work, and it started to shake REALLY bad. It
never stalled, but just shook. Mainly when it was idling at a light or
when it was in park.
Well, I looked at the water level again, and it was empty by the time that
I got off work. SO, I refilled it. It drank and drank and drank the
coolant, but continuted to shake. Then I started to notice some steaming
coming from the engine. I was thinking that I just spilt some coolant on
it, but when I put some in the car when it was warm a few days later, it
did it again.
Now, the car has been sitting for about 6 months. It starts, but it still
is shaking. And when I go to put the coolant in it, it gets worse. Then
when I try to put it into drive, it stalls and all the lights come on
except the "temp" light.
The head gaskets went a year before this, and it doesn't seem to be doing
all the same things that it was then...so I dont' think that's what it is.
THANKYOU for taking the time to read this. ANY suggestions will be GREATLY
