    Is it only doing it with the new set of rims/tires, or is it also doing it with your old ones?

The problem sounds like a bad axle shaft or cv joint especially if the shaking stops when there is added weight to the back because this is taking some of the load off the front of the car where the axle shafts are located

Dear Adam, You have a rear wheel drive auto. I suggest you have the differential pinion bearing checked for lateral movement. That means grabbing the drive shaft near the diff and try to move it up & down and side to side and in and out. If you get any movement"at all" the pinion bearings are wearing or the crush sleeve has lost its tension. If this is the problem, the diff has to be disassembled and parts replaced. Good luck. It can get expensive so ask around.
Yours Moe

My 2002 chevy impala shakes whem i accelerate the gas between 40-60 mph. I changed the tires and 2 motor mounts but it still shakes

When you changed your tires were the wheels inspected to make sure they weren't bent. If on of your wheels is bent even just a little it could cause your shake. You could try rotating the front ones to the back and see if it makes a difference. I would inspect your wheel bearings and front CV axles and joints. If one of those it bad it will cause your shake.

Chevy Impala 2002 when accelerating shudders very badly until you hit around 65 mph and then smooths out, does not shudder when coasting just when giving gas?

I had the same problem with my 2002 Impala w/ 3.8L.
No check engine light.
My problem turned out to be the MAF sensor. I replaced mine, but you could try to clean it first. I've done that on a few other cars.
Here's a picture of where the sensor is located. I took the picture when I had the radiator out, so it may be confusing. It's located on the big tube going from the air filter to the engine. I recall that you have to pull the engine cover off first.
Unplug the connector.
There are two screws holding it in. They may be special security screws that require a special torx drive.

zeevert_25.jpg After you get it out, you can try to clean the small, small sensor with MAF cleaner from the parts store. Spray, soak, spray, soak... until it gets shiny clean. Do not use a brush. It has a super fine wire that can be broken. In this picture, you're trying to clean that little thing in the central window suspended between the two posts.

My 2000 chevy impala shakes while driving.i let

It sounds like you might need to replace your motor mounts, or get a tier allignement done. The allignment you cannot do yourself but the motor mounts you can this requires you to place a jack under you engine and undoing the motor mounts then replace them and take away jack.

2003 chevy impala impala shakes when brakes applied

If it only happens when braking, then it is definately you brake system. Most likely you rotors and pads need replacement. If you can do car work, then this is not a difficult job, but requires some wrenches. The parts can be purchased a lot cheaper on-line. A shop will get you for $300-$800. I bought all my parts for my 2001 VW passat for $200 shipped to my door. Good Luck.

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.

2002 Chevy Impala Radio Doesn't Work

Check the radio fuse? Box is drivers side end of dash(drivers door open)or pass side end of dash(passenger door open)
police models have a connection for the speakers (passenger floorboard under floor mat) to connect the speakers to the police radios.
If they had the speakers connected to their radios,they may have unhooked them and not connected them back to the radio.
The wires are brown,grey,blue and light blue.All into a blue connector.
