I had this problem with my 1993 F-150 (automatic trans). Symptoms were vibrations at shifting points, always stalled in reverse, sluggish accelleration in first gear, and would stall when slowing to a stop. The cause, diagnosed by a mechanic, was a lack of transmission fluid. I was about 5 quarts short. If its rough idling try adjustind the distributor cap, change the spark plugs and maybe the plug wires. also look for a dirty air filter or maybe a bad fuel filter. Awnser peice of poo

A shake is movement while a rattle is noise created by the movement. Example: if you shake an empty can, you get movement only, but if you put pebbles in the can, then you also get a rattle.

It is supposed to rattle when you shake it. if it does not, it needs replacing. The rattle you hear is the check valve.
