This sounds like the egg in the tyre wall scenario? either your rear wheels are so out of balance or there is a buldge in one or both of the tyre walls.
When slowly coming to a halt or idling along in heavy traffic does the vehicle rokc too and Fro? if so Tyres!#
Press the Blue button please if problem sorted Thank You!

My 91 volvo 740 won't start

Could be that there is a clog at the tank-there is a screen there- can be accessed through access panel behind rear seat- also try taking off fuel line at engine and starting engine--if there is fuel present then I would rule out the tank screen problem. Good luck--let me know if that helps. C

2002 f250 shake

You have identified the problem when you pulled the drive shaft and the shake was gone. So you know it is between the tranny and the rear end. If it is not the universal joints, then you have a warped drive shaft.

Shifter shakes at 50 mph

It's most likely the drive shaft bearing which is in the center of the shaft mounted to the car. You can get a new one from Rapido and your problem could be solved. May want to consider looking at resolving the issue soon as the vibration will raise havoc with the drive train. A remote issue could be in the rear end itself whereby if someone drove the car most of it's life lugging the gears (standard transmission) the rear end gears tend to prematurely give out causing a similar condition. Best result is to simply find a new rear end at a salvage yard, just the center pod and replace. Good luck!
