Sounds like a broken engine mount I'll tell you how to check for this...

1. Have a friend sit in the vehicle pop the hood and keep it up.

2. Start vehicle engine will pop up an back.

3. Put in a gear and the same will happen.

4. Put in reverse and the same will happen as well...

5. Place in neutral, hand brake up and press acclerator right down engine will move violently....

6. In neutral lock steering all the way to the right and hold, it will start to rock in the next direction for itself...

Now that's how to check for a broken mount. Basically what I think is hhappening is that one of the mounnts have broken so when u add the extra weight it stressen the mount and bends the engine so it causes the vibration

Why does it shake whenever i let off the gas and shakes real bad when i apply my brakes


If when applying the brakes the steering wheel shakes then your front rotors are warped and at the least need resurfaced and most likely the brake pads replaced. But more likely the rotors are too thin which has allowed them to overheat and warp which causes the shaking. In this case new rotors and pads are in order. If when braking tou feel the shaking in the seat of your pants then most likely the rear brakes are the issue. Same problem as the front, warpage, but your rear brakes are most likely drums. Again, possible resurfacing and new shoes; but more likely new drums and brake shoes.

But I wonder? Did this vibrating just start all of a sudden or maybe after a near accident requiring you to brake very heavily and possibly overheat the brakes. Or my main concern, to keep this from happening again, after pulling some type of trailer that you intend on pulling again. Pulling a trailer without its own brakes puts a much heavier load on your trucks brakes and just repairing them won't keep it from happening again if you ARE pulling a trailer. Higher quality rotors/pads/drums/ and brake shoes can help but if the trailer is too heavy for the truck nothing but installing brakes on the trailer or a lighter trailer will stop you from warping them again.

Lastly, in general when you let off the gas and the whole vehicle shakes the driveshaft/u-joints are common causes. Same with the steering wheel if it shakes when letting off the gas, but only on a 4x4 or AWD vehicle. So check your driveshafts and u-joints and make sure they are tight. But unless you find something obvious there I would wait until you have the brakes sorted out and see if that doesn't stop all the shaking.

Good luck!

My 1989 Chevey Celebrity started shaking the other day the front part of the car, not like the front end is messed up but it shakes.


Could be a wheel, tire, or axle shaft.
You could rotate the tires front to back and see if the vibration moves.
If it does the problem is one of the tires or wheels.
If it stays in the front, its probably one of the axle shafts. It could also be a hub bearing or something loose in the suspension. But a loose suspension part would normally show up when you hit a bump rather than on a smooth road.

Wheel making a noise and shaking...


indicates another failed wheel bearing
I would seek an accredited service shop to have the job done as most back yard mechanics will damage a wheel bearing on assembly especially if there is a set preload requirement in the adjustment
in normal operations a new wheel bearing will last well over 100,000 miles but if incorrectly installed using incorrect press and adjustments , will last less that 20,000 miles

My 02 Ford expedition started to shake when I turn it on what should I do


If your vehicle is a 4 wheel drive, than you are probably driving in 4low or 4 high on dry pavement. Put it back in a4wd (automatic 4 wheel drive) position and this shaking when turning should stop.

A few possibilities.... bent rim, broken steel belt in tire, or a wheel weight that keeps the tire/wheel combination in balance has fallen off. Not sure how big the bump was, so other options would be suspension related. I would check the tire and/or wheel first.

Unfortunately this model of saturn is known for this problem. Try tapping the head of the key lightly with a small hammer and then while shaking the wheel back and forth try to turn the key. The only known permanent fix is key cylinder repalacement.

Steeing wheel vibrates when i turn to the left from a stop


Does it feel like it's trying to pull back straight? if so, I would say you have a seized strut bearing on the right side.
