An automobile engine usually shakes when it is being revved due the crank rotation. When revved in neutral, a torque is produced due to the reaction of the motor.

I had the same noise, but in diesel one, the problem was in rubber between engine and frame where engine bolted down.actually engine wasnot bolted down tight enough, that's way when i pressed accelerator it was noise. engine just shakes against the frame.

If your car shakes while underway, your tires have worn incorrectly from misalignment. If it shakes while in park or not moving, your engine is misfiring.

When the engine light comes on and the car shakes at the same time, it could be the spark plugs or ignition coils are faulty. Misfiring is causing the car to shake.

Probably a misfire, it could be in need of a tune up.

sounds like you have a bad motor mount

If your engine shakes when you accelerate, you may have a broken motor mount. You need to get it fixed before your engine falls out of your car as you drive along.

If a Vortec engine shakes or rumbles at low RPMs it likely needs a timing adjustment. It would also simply need a tuneup.
