2 Answers

Have you checked your fluid levels "full hot" on the coolant, oil nice honey color and not over the top. transmission fluid "in the zone" with the motor runnin'...the belt or belts should not be smokin' a worn tensioner bearing can cause this to happen....aside from coolant bake (kinda smells like popcorn) going to go with tensioner bearing and subsequent misalignment of your accessories belt~

think the belt may be tryin' to fold over on top of itself, causing the shaking~
