Shaking, What in the heck is it?

OK, asked the question before but still can't pin point the answer. When I go out and start my baby in the morning, and put it in gear with my foot still on the break it starts to shake, in the rear end. I try lettin it warm up and go away btit don't. When I get up to speed it goes away but when sittin at stoplight it comes back. U Bolts are fine. Just checked em yesterday. Thanks everbody for pitchin in.

GO BIG OR GO HOME!!!!!!!!!!!

Tranny fluid? Its an auto and all of them I've ever seen that really shook was because the tranny was toast or low on fluid.

Re: Shaking, What in the heck is it?

I go with the motor or trans mount.

Put the hood up and put it in gear (both forward and reverse). Look for movement.

The prefered way to do this is with another person behind the wheel ...but since you haven't already done this I assume that you're in somewhat of a "solo" situation.
Does your parkng brake hold? If so (with extreme confidence) put it in gear (it's shaking now, right?) ..apply brake and get out and look from behind the vehicle (it's in drive - have it against a parking curb or something). You've got to be able to see what's wobbling around.
