car shaking when stopped

Not actually a civic problem, but people tend to respond quickly here.

I did a tune up on my moms 89 accord lxi (automatic tranny) today and one of the problems she is having is when she comes to a complete stop the car shakes (dash, windows, everything). If you shift to park or neutral it instantly stops shaking. It doesn't always shake when you stop, but it does it more often than not.

I changed the tranny fluid (it looked pretty nasty) and that helped the tranny shift better, but did nothing for the shake. Aside from the shake, the tranny seems to be fine. After changing the fluid, it shifts just fine, consistent and as smooth as you could expect from a 14yr old car.

i think this is normal...my 90 civic does the same when i come to a stop sometimes, it doesn't shake hard, but if i have something in the glove box besides my papers, you can hear it rattling in there. my friend's mom's 90 accord also does the same, i'm not sure if it's something to really worry about.

Q:__When I put it out of park, or neutral, the whole car shakes. Also when I do that, it idles about 750 rpm. What do you suggest.


A:__Sounds a lot like an engine miss.... Possible spark plug wires or spark plugs.... Also check the dist cap for cracks.....Ed"

This guy gets it when he takes it out of park or neutral but I would check the same thing on mine to see if its a bad plug a wire or there is a crack on the dist cap.

could the torque converter be part of the problem?

Yeah, someone suggested that. However I changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap & rotor as part of the tune-up. It didn't make a difference. However the timing is probably off...

If it was the mounts, wouldn't the car shake all of the time? And wouldn't it be worse the higher the engine revved?

Thats what I'm thinking, but I don't know much about auto tranmissions.
