1994 Dodge Shadow 2.2 from North America
Very rough idling: Please help me!
It's been reliable except the fact that the head gasket started to leak anti-freeze, which made the car overheat. I got the head gasket replaced at 103 000. It's strange because I went visiting French-Canada (Quebec), and I went in a place with many hills (Laurentides) and the head gasket failed right after I went back to New Jersey.
Other that, there's been nothing wrong, just normal maintenance.
But since I bought the car, it always idles rough. It shakes when waiting on a red-light, and then it stops when I drive. It still shakes a little bit when driving, but nothing compared to idling. I've got two engine mounts changed, cleaned the injectors, the Air idle speed motor, I've done tune-ups, changed the fuel filter, but nothing stops that shaking. CAN SOMEONE HELPS ME!!! please.
Other than that (VERY) rough idling (shaking through all the body, mostly through the steering wheel), I love my car. Because it drives good, even if it's very under-powered, it's a nice rust-free green car, and it is comfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
