Aveo 2006 has an Engine light ON and Car is shaking when trying accelerate. Car is not been able to pick up the speed with putting full pressure on the accelerator.

Yeah, it's worth it. Probably a coil pack. But this is a guess. When you take it to a garage and they diagnose it. They tell you this is the fix. They are liable.

Transit connect keep revving up and wont pick up speed

If you mean that you are accelerating and the vehicle will not pick up speed then it is probably the clutch that is badly worn and slipping when you press the accelerator -- (unless it is an automatic gearbox)
A good test is when you come to pull away from a standstill -- does the clutch pedal come nearly all the way out before the vehicle starts to move and do you have to ride the clutch when pulling away
These are indicators that the clutch is on its way OUT -- get it changed at your earliest -- also bear in mind that the mileage of a clutch is probably only in the region of 40/50,000 miles so check you meter and do the calculations yourself

Why car wont pick up speed when i get to 40mph then jerks and pick up speed

Does it down shift appropriately when accelerating? Normally when you stomp on the gas while in a high gear (travelling at 40mph), the transmission will downshift to a lower gear giving the car much more torque. This can cause the car to jolt or jerk forward and accelerate suddenly.

If this is way off base and you\'re experiencing something else, please let me know

That is not an emergency brake, it is for parking only. Get this checked outby a brake shop or general repair shop ASAP, DO NOT DRIVE IT!
