Altima (2002) will not accelerate past 60 mph and shakes

Altima (2002) will not accelerate past 60 mph (pedal is to the floor). When it gets up to that speed the whole car shakes, especially the gas pedal. This issue is worse when it comes to driving up small inclines or hills. This car has only been in slight accidents (only outer damage). It has body modifications (unknown types other than the observable) from a previous owner. Car has been in my possession since 2007 (only accidents known to occur was during this period), hill issue started in 2010, but it is now getting significantly worse. It also takes some time to shift (delayed). This issue has been brought up to the dealer during maintenance, but they say they cannot find anything wrong. What can I mention to the dealer so the issue can be properly dealt with?

SOURCE: prado jerking while going up hill or jerking when accelerating

Hi,
When was the last tune-up done? Should be done every 30-45KM, or depending on what your owner's manual maintenance book states.
1. Spark plugs
2. Spark plug wires
3. Fuel Filter
4. Air filter
5. Oxygen Sensor

If these have recently been replaced then do you have Check Engine Light (CEL)? If so, you'll need to get that checked by a mechanic.

When I get past 60 mph my gas pedal shakes really bad


It's probably more than just the gas pedal shaking. Have the wheels balanced and see if that helps.
