could be the engine mounts. could because of early detonation, which could be caused by overheating. it also could be a rod knock, which is more likely if it keeps shaking during acceleration and higher rpm's.

first thing to check would be if its too hot, watch the temp guage, and make sure it doesnt get too high.

Im betteing one of your motor mounts is broken and making the car shake. does the engine move when you gun it in neutral? ajust the idle of the car.

Also have you intake and plentium checked and cleaned also run some fuel injector cleaner every tank full. dirt420ba BE SAFE!!!!!
