Default 2002 Prius Warning Lights and Vibrations

I'm having some kind of violent vibration when I turn right (and sometimes left). It doesn't happen every time, but it's becoming more frequent especially since it's colder (Nashville). We had it towed in as it kept dying on a warm start--a different problem--and the dealer could find no reason for the vibration. They said they checked the tires for broken belts and the CV joint, and nothing was wrong. We just got the car back after 10 days in the shop for the warning light/ stalling problem and the vibration is still there. They even drove it cold to see if it would happen--no luck. They felt that it probably was related to the air flow sensor they replaced (which did not prevent the stalling), and now they have cleaned the fuel injectors hoping to stop the warning light/warm start problem. It's a 2002 Prius. Is anyone else dealing with these 2 problems?

Did your car have the steering rack replaced? I have a 2002, and I had a slight occasional shudder during the first year of ownership. I think the problem was fixed in mid to late 2002, so yours might not be affected. The dealer replaced it free, under warranty.

Good luck, and let us know what it turns out to be.

That free replacement under the special 5 year warranty may have expired, or is very close to doing so.

Default violent shaking

To me this sounds somewhat similar to how my 2001 was after I accidentally disconnected #4 ignitor wire. If so there will be a stored DTC related to the misfiring cylinder(s).
