I need to know how long it ran before it died, and how hard it was shaking. Just the engine, shaking the car, or just in the sound.

    Sounds like there is either a coil pack is gone or you broke a cam. A good way to check this is to pull the spark plugs one at a time and see which ones are not firing. at an idle. Another thing it could be is a backwards wire. You may have 2 plugs hooked up backwards. That will turn the passenger compartment into a martini shaker. The higher you rev the engine the smoother it gets. I would love to hear the engine so I could give you a more accurate diagnosis. But I'll keep trying as long as you keep writing. Fair enough?

    A camshaft is a rod with lobes on it which control the valves. If you broke it, then whatever cyliders are behind the break is not getting or moving any air. And what it does is causes a strain point on your engine, cylinders are dead and only compressing air. It will make the engine run so rough that it is impossible to not notice. It just sounds and performs way wrong. A dirty filter will also make it act like what your saying, but not as bad as a cam. The filter will almost always make you run hot at this stage, and will give you next to no power. And sucking up the last of the gas can get alot of sediment in there. It would definitely be a good, and least expensive place to start. My apologies, I assumed that you already tried that.

Why my 2002 kia rio stalles out everytime i step on the acceleration and keeps getting worse i changed spark pluggs and air filter and fuel filter please help me oh and everytime i go up hills i loss speed...

you need to check your fuel pressure at the rail with a gauge. But to me it sounds like the spark plug boots . If they crack or split it will cause symptoms just like yours, mostly shaking while under load. Since you already changed the plugs change the boots or wires too.

Front end shacking when I run over small bump in road.

If it is still under warranty take it to the dealer. You could have at a minimum have thrown the weights off the tires. But anything like tie rod ends or belts in the tires could be bad.

oh ---- open circuits are a headache. try take out one fuse only at night or day whenever trk will be sitting for 7 or 8 hours. once you find the circuit it is alot easier to troubleshoot each wire.
