96 Camaro, Car shakes in higher rpms

I have a 96 camaro that i bought off of my buddy for cheap becuase he didnt know what to do with it. The whole car shakes when it starts going into higher rpms. I checked the basic stuff but it still does it. I have been told it could either be the harmonic balancer, the motor mounts are bad, or the balance shaft could be off. It seems to not shake at all when i am going to 65 but its also cause its at 1500 rpms. I just want some info before i start ripping into the motor. Thanks.

Hook up a fuel pressure gauge to rule out a failing fuel pump/ regulator and filter and report back with the pressure readings we start here. Also check the injector/s -have helper crank engine over and you listen to it if its clicking in a uniformity manner or use a noid lite.
The fuel pressure should be 41-47psi yours is on the low side, Fuel injector solenoid resistance is 11.8-12.6 ohms. If the fuel filter has not been replaced, try with that also and add some fuel injector cleaner every time you fill up with gas for the next three fill ups. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100%

I have a 1995 camaro, should I drive it in overdrive or regular drive.

Overdrive will use more gas and put the car in a higher set of gears for more performance out of the transmission. Drive will just put the car in a regular set of gears for highway and road performance and save you a little bit of MPG, depending on whether you have a 3.4L V6, LT1, or a 5.7L V8 you'll notice a slight difference in power only out of the V6.

Testing fuel pressure an flow , engine managment sensor input's to the PCM - engine computer .

Did you check for vacuum leaks? Get a can of some flammable brake cleaner and start spraying it near all of the vacuum lines and see if it idles down. Also spray it around the intake when you hit the right spot it should idle down. Then you know where your problem is.

When I shift my 96 camaro from it starts shaking and no power.

The "blinking" service engine light is indicating an over fueling problem that can damage the catalytic converter.
You will need to have the codes read to narrow the problem down.
I would suggest you not drive the vehicle as you may cause unnecessary damage to the emission system (convertor) and added expense to repair.
Good luck.
Let me know.
