Shaky Hyundai Lantra

Asked by Sharon Coote

I had the gearbox in my 1996 Hyundai Lantra serviced recently and brackets placed front and back on the motor, but the engine still shakes at idle. I've been told there is not much that can be done to fix it, is this true? Is it a fault with the Hyundai?

It's not a particular problem of the Lantra, and I would expect it could be fixed. I had a recent case where the engine in a car of another make was shaking at idle; that turned out to be the PCV valve. The valve was replaced and the car ran fine. So check the engine for things that could cause an air leak at idle.
