What can cause engine sputtering in a car that makes the engine shake so bad that it vibrates the entire car?

A cylinder misfiring can cause this sympton, check/replace spark plugs and plug wires. Also, sputtering and shaking can be caused by engine timing, have the timing checked. Another cause can be fouled fuel injectors on fuel injected vehicles.

The reason why it is vibrating is cause of the Engine Mounts. You have to get the Engine Mounting changed ! cheers.

Anything that vibrates can cause a sound.

If a car is sputtering at high RPMs, the fuel pressure needs to be checked. If the fuel pump can't keep up, this will cause sputtering. Also, the car should be checked to make sure the valves are adjusted properly.
