Have the tires checked asap, also it might have some front end linkage wear .. you can check the tires yourself by jacking the car and checking them one at a time and spinning it and checking it to be round.. cady shocks are costly and the tires must be in good shape to stop excessive wear and a out of round tire will destroy a shock absorber in no time can take it to several tire shops and ask for a estimate ..jay the pool motor repair guy florida .. did you vote for your favorite fixya guy ?

Why is it shaking?

I bet it shakes under light/moderate acceleration and will also stop shaking if you let off the gas?

If so your best bet is to bring it to someone who is very good with driveline. It is fairly common for worn drive axles to cause this symptom however an engine misfire will also cause a similar symptom.

at 45 miles an hour overdrive engages putting a lot of load on the engine. Weak ignition components can cause a misfire that only shows up under this extreme load. It is very important to have somebody who is very good at solving these issues take a look at it and determine exactly what it is. I have literately had customers admit defeat after installing every ignition component, every sensor, and even transmissions only to find out a few hundred dollar drive axle was the problem.

2000 Cadillac Deville DTS Shaking!

Sounds like a timing issue. Same thing happened to me. Drove car to work, drove fine, went to go home and it just shook. Had to replace timing chain.

Right front tire seems to wobble, shaking. Engine area of car shaking over 55. Mech friend says it's the rotor. Worried about driving.

A bad rotor would only cause a shake when you are using the brakes. A bad tire could shake at 55mph and above.
I would get a second opinion to make sure.
The shop could rotate the tires and see if the vibration moves to a different area of the car.

Replaceing timming belts A, and B,

If I understand you correctly it seems like belt "b" came off. If in deed it came off it is possible that it did som damage to the crank sensor and now since the computer doest have an rpm reference the vehicle won't start. You may have to revisit the work done and make sure everything is in order. Keep in mind this is an interference engine. Meaning that misalignment of the cam and crank or a belt coming off or breaking while everything is in motion will cause internal damage to the engine. Good luck.

I have a 1994 Cadillac Concours. When I left the store the motor started shaking, then it quit. Then right before I got home it started shaking again.

If the car is running well, the issue could be a motor mount. A bad motor mount will give you the symptom of vibrating or shaking.

What have people, or Ford, done to fix the shaking that happens on the Ford f_250 when traveling at high speeds?

shaking may be caused by unbalanced tires or separation on belts inside the tire. A tire shop should be able to determine if it is your tires. Hope this helps Tim

The timing belt is not easy but the regular tune up anyone with basic hand tools can do.Plugs and wires,fuel and air filter and perhaps an oil change and your good to go.Timing belt should be done by som eone with experiance.

Kia Sedona 2003 shaking motor

Have a cylinder leakdown test done...likely they missed another bent valve. I'm betting it's an exahust, because it would be less drivable if it was an intake, but regardless, I'll bet that is your problem.
