any broken motor mounts? automatic? manual?

and how do you know its wasting gas if you're not keeping track of the mileage?
also, your driving habits will affect your mileage the most.

Shaking, check alignment. If we don't know your actual mathematical miles driven per 'gallon' or litres used per 100 kilometers, it could just be the stock fuel gauge being inaccurate as always.

Start by checking/replacing the spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor.

caps only is for fgts. this is your first issue. Do you know if its misfiring? do you know how to do math? fill up tank and drive miles. use the fkn odometer. We cant help you with no information. Shakes and uses fuel, ya ok thats so much info rofl. When did u last do oil change? how much do you drive a day? is the car stock? etc.

well i had this happen to me, it was idleing at a little over 100rpms, (and i dont mean 1000) it was shaking like hell,(timing was good) and my mpgs sucked ***. so i swapped the engine, the took the old one apart.... it had bad rings, and the head was cracked, but thats what happens when you get a d15b2 for $100, id say it was worth the money cuz it lasted 2 months, 3k mils

i have a 94 eg and i also had the same problem. i found out my engine was running on two cylinders, and had that fixed right away. mechanics told me my engine timing was off which made me burn extra gas.

I had this issue before. just a great thing to put on your carb engine, "enging support" it helps you get no shaking feeling. works 100% also check the timing if its advance or delay, it consumes more gas, its like having a 1.8L engine for a d15 non Vtec engine. :D good luck!

Almost 5 year-old thread closed. The OP has probably moved on.
