    Abnormal vibration when starting

    My car shakes when i start it in the morning or anytime when i can take longtime without starting it.The engine warning light will appear immediately when it shakes but the shaking does not last for more than 15 minutes after starting.The engine warning light appears for hours or a day and disappear.I once diagnosed it and got this code as the result P1353, so i want to know what this code mean and what will i need to do to arrest this condition?

    Hi Stuta , error code P1353 is "missfire on cylinder no.6 with fuel cut off"

    1st you can try swapping the coil pack from cylinder no.6 with another cylinder and see if the fault travels with the coil pack ?

    If the fault and same error code P1353 persists swap the park plug from no.6 cylinder with another spark plug & if still the same the injector can also be swapped out.

    Doing the above should identify the faulty part thats causing the missfire, please let us know how you get on?
