fuel regulator

I was explaining to my dad about my car shaking. If going under 40mph, everytime it downshifts, it felt and sounded like it would hit the floor under your feet real hard. When your sitting at an idle the car would make a rocking motion.........he said that its more than likely a broke motor mount. Wont know till i inspect it tomorrow tho.

Also the reason it idle a little low sometimes, was because its a little out of time. It had a new dist put on it,(before i bought it) was never timed properly i guess.

And on top of that....new dist.....ORIGINAL PLUG WIRES!!. haha

Well good luck finding out yes a motor mount would cause some pretty bad shaking. I dont know if i mentioned vacume hoses or not but you can try those to. Getting your car timed right will make a huge differance...

RE: fuel regulator

Where is the fuel pressure regulator on my car? Or does it have something similiar? I bought new motor mounts and no more shaking or knocking in idle:) But it still idles to low, to where it almost dies. It idles so low it lets the volts drop below normal. Wich doesnt give it a good response and lets everything dim. It still shakes sometimes, but now you can tell its because it idles to low. Someone said the fuel pump might be going out.
