Are you getting any codes from the Check Engine Light? This sounds like it could have something to do with a sensor. Check your air filter and make sure it's clean. The tach on my 1999 doesn't really work, but it hasn't coincided with other driveability problems. The engine doesn't change in it's RPM's, the tachometer just stops working. Have your charging system checked. The shaking might be coming from bad fuel pump operation, clogged fuel filter, or dirty fuel injectors. Try putting an additive into your gastank to clean the injectors (a bottle of Seafoam is great for this). Try calling your local Autozone and see if they do free trouble code scanning. This might help lead you in a better direction.

If the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any faulty codes that it has stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. It sounds like a faulty idle air control valve, but getting the codes will identify what faults the computer has noted and in what systems. Hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: 96 f-150 idles really high
I just solved this problem on my truck after fighting with it for 2 yrs. Mine is the 5.0 though, check your PVC valve and replace if it is bad. After that Take off your IAC and spray down with carb or brake cleaner and scrape all the carbon build up out of it and work the spring inside. you gotta really clean it out though! After that if it's opening and closing easily put it back together and it should work! you might have to adjust the idle a bit to get it all the way. But after doing this my truck went from a 2000 rpm idle down to about a 700! I hope this helps you!!
