You do not mention if the vehicle is manual or automatic. Whichever, you problem appears to be with the drive, if a manual the problem would most likely be the clutch which is slipping to the extent that it does not drive at all, or if an automatic, the clutches in the box are slipping or the transmission has just failed completly. Whichever it is, the transmission will have to be removed to affect repairs.

When i step on the gas the car vibrates and shakes


Is the engine running smoothly? Does it only vibrate when loaded? If so, then Yes, check the motor mounts. While you or a tech are underneath get your driveline and suspension mounts checked. A bad suspension mount could give the same symptoms. You don't say how many miles but if its anywhere near 100k then mounts are a definite possibility.

Have the engine cradle bushings checked by an alignment shop. Sleeves on these have a track record of rusting away on older cars.

A motor that shakes when you accelerate can usually be traced back to a bad motor mount. The shaking is the motor shifting around each time you step on the gas. This can also happen when you shift from Park to Drive. Any head gasket problem would have loss of coolant, white smoke, and overheating associated with it.

This vehicle does not use points, it has a solid state magnetic pick up to trigger ignition. Try changing the air filter. A dirty air filter can put the MAF ( mass airflow sensor) out of range.

I step on the gas and the engine vibrates but when i turn on the cruise control it wont shake.engine only shakes when you step on the gas


Hello there:
I would first have the motor mount bushings checked to see if they are loose or if the mount is cracked or just loose
and you may want to have the engine transmission and the driveline inspected for misaglinment

2002 f250 shake


You have identified the problem when you pulled the drive shaft and the shake was gone. So you know it is between the tranny and the rear end. If it is not the universal joints, then you have a warped drive shaft.
