Sounds to me that you have a pluged cat. One way to tell is at night start the car and let it run for about 20 min. Look at the exhaust manifold to see it is a bright or dull red. If so then your cat is pluged.

SOURCE: car shake

if its from the engine shaking from a rough idle or transmission having problems...then yes. BUT if its from a problem with your tires, suspension or steering. then likely no. you can check the OBDII on your car then if nothing shows up then look into your suspension/steering. hope this helps you out

You have a engine ignition miss, poss defective coil, get the trouble code out of memory to find out which cylinder is the problem, Kragen does the trouble code test for free.

SOURCE: I have 1998 Chevy Suburban 4wheel drive half ton.

If it slips in reverse and 3rd gear the direct clutches are damaged or the 3rd gear /direct piston is cracked. If 3rd is solid but you lost reverse instantly then the reverse servo or band broke. If this is the case you can tell by putting the truck in manual low one,take off and get up to about 25 mph,normally when you let off the gas your truck would compression brake,with the low reverse band inop truck will coast like its in neutral. If this is the case before pulling the trans,drop the pan and pull the low servo cover (round with 6 bolts w/10 mm heads) If it is broken you can easily fix it by buying a new one for under 30$ from the dealer.

It is very common for the reverse band to break. Probably time for a rebuild.

190,000+ miles. Engine shakes while running and driving. Seems to shake less while revving and accelerating. I replaced the spark plugs. Any suggestions?


Check your engine mounts. It's an easy check. With the hood up, have a friend jump in the car and crank the engine. Look for the engine to "shake" or "jump" when he shifts the vehicle from park to reverse and back to park again.

More than likely it is your engine mounts. If you have cracked or deteriorated mounts, the engine will vibrate with the symptoms you have posted.
