I can start up my engine and try to drive but will only go 10 mph with the pedal to the floor.. and will cont. shaking until i stop and goes dead. We took off the c. converter and cleaned the debris out and put back on but still wont work. It will sometimes rev up really high while trying to drive and take off for about 2 seconds then cont. shaking and dropping speed.

try the simple solution first put your front tires on back and back tires on front. check your air pressure then take it for a drive and see if any thing has changed. if so you probably have a badly worn tire. if no change have someone move the steering wheel back and forth wyle you are under the fornt of the car (dont forget to chalk the wheels) and see if any of your steering components are loose/moving. if nothing is loose and your tires are good try to bounce the front end. if you can really get the front of the car going up and down pretty easy you havce bad struts/shocks.

This can be your Idle control valve, when you turn the air on it puts the engine under load and your computer will increase the idle automatically to prevent the engine from cutting out.
When you are standing still and the car is shaking, by touching the accelerator very softly does the shaking stop? If so check the idle control valve.
I hope this will help.
