What really is happening is the bushings in the transmission are wore. Yes new oil and Lucas will help for a while, but the time is coming when the tranny will a rebuild.

Good day. My neighbor had the same issue. Now what we did was drained as much of the gear oil we could and replaced it with fresh. We also added some Lucas gear oil conditioner. No more shimmy or shake. Even shifted smoother. Hope this helps. Have plenty of rags and please recycle used oil or grease.

Try shifting into first without pressing the gas. If it is a slow decline before engine dies this is normal. If its a dramatic engine death, your clutch is to blame, if it still makes noise then its the gearbox. If you have a Mr. Clutch Autocentre near you they will test your gearbox for free as will many reputable transmission shops.
