Try checking your engine mounts and bolts. On my Engine was it a misfire condition,the sparkplugwire from cyl #6 came loose I have a 96 Camaro RS 3.8 L.The other time it was a small Vac Line by the Throttle body,that caused a bad shake

The fact that it's a piece of junk chevy, get a mustang. Ford all day.

if this happens at a certain speed it's probably the alignment of the tires.

Could be a broken motor mount.

YES it can, but the engine would vibrate and shake if it did.

Cylinder misfire. Possibly failed or failing engine mounts.

Misfire, bad spark timing, bad engine mountings.

Can be engine miss or broken motor mount.

Does it do it when you take it up to about 50 to 60 and then let off. If so then it could be your u-joints on your drive shaft.

Here are some possible causes: 1. Warped flywheel. 2. Engine out of time. 3. Engine misfiring.

A miss or A collapsed engine mount or A imbalance caused by a failing component, harmonic balancers and torque converters are common.

There are many possible causes, the top few are in order:Engine misfireSlipped harmonic balancer weightCollapsed or damaged engine mountSlipping or chattering clutch inside the transmissionDamaged or failing AC compressor.

The engine of the car may need to be cleaned or your oil may need to be changed.

Sounds like an engine misfire. Can be bad spark plug, plug wire, fuel injector, or bad coil on plug.

either the idle is set too high or your timing is advanced too far.

Bad CV joint. Bent rim. Needs alignment. anything relating to your wheels could be the cause.

check your timing and motor mounts and make sure all cylinders are igniting when needed these will most likely be the answer to your problems!

Thankfully mine does not shake, thanks for asking. This is really not enough information to diagnose the problem. Does it shake the same every time or does it not shake or shake less sometimes? Is the "check engine" light on? Is there a speed where the shake is more pronounced? Does it have to be full throttle acceleration or does it shake under light acceleration too? Is there a noise accompanying the shake? If you accelerate around a corner is the shake any different? Left or right turn make a difference?

Not running on all cylinders? Bad spark plug or wire? Bad ignition coil (if C.O.P.)? Bad valve? etc.?

Engine Misfire? check engine light on? If so have vehicle scanned to determine the problem

The car has a problem with the engine. My first and probably correct guess would be a blown head gasket. The symptoms are exactly what you mention.

Bad engine cushions can make the engine shake. bad spark plugs cause malfunction as the car starts running.

What causes a dog to shake can be for various reasons. One common reason would be that a dog might be scared of something or someone. In addition, if the temperature is cold, a dog would shake since it is cold.

Most definitely. Any miss will cause the engine to shake. A vacuum leak will also cause this.
