ABS shoots on all the time

Yes, it can be a potentially serious safety problem. If the ABS system is not working properly it can cause the brakes to work erratically. Unplugging any part of the brake system is definitely not recommended, because that will produce more problems than solve any problems. You should have the brake system inspected and diagnosed by a certified repair shop.

you need to check your fluids there. You could have run it with out transmission oil and cooked your clitch pack in your transmission. Good luck. You should check all your flids, that means oil too.

When accelerating (aprox 30-60km only) rumbling happens. If you let up on the gas it stops, but as soon as you re-press the gas it rumbles again. Shakes entire vehicle. Help!

If the noise also occur when the car is at full stop while reving it high then have the engine observed while the hood is up. See if there is excess shaking it may be a bad engine support. If it only occurs when the car is running it may be the drive shaft or the transmission. You may need to raise the car and inspect the drive shaft down to the transmission. At times it could also be just the wheels depending on the noise and the shaking. Check first the wheel, have the front swapped with the back and see if there is a significant change. Your wheel may just need balancing. While at it inspect the thread for uneven wear. You may need to do some alignment of the wheels.

At 40 mph the car starts to shake. It last to 5o

I have this same car with exactly the same problem. Begins shaking at 40mph and stops shaking as soon as you let off the gas, but then begins again as soon as you press on the gas and smooths out as you get over 50. And the shaking is not felt through the steering wheel. Solution: Replace the transmission mounts. There are two of them, one on each side mounted on the frame right next to the shock strut. There is also a front and rear engine mount, but I replaced the two as described and shaking is gone.

2000 Chevy Lumina shakes forward and backwards when its stopped

Seems to me the transmission is locking up. Have the tranny oil replaced by a reputable workshop or good friend :-) just remember to replace the filter, located inside the tranny. For this the tranny sump plate need to be removed, and the work area must be very clean.

Holy **** you need a new transmission or check the fluid in it. Cus that shaking means the trans is locking up and doesnt want to move get that checked out soon. Or the mounts could be gone also. But either way thats not safe. Hope that helps
