[DML] Re: Trans problem-voilent shake

If it shakes that bad my guess is the engine is not running correctly
at idle so when you start out you have no power unless you rev it up
and slip the clutch. The clutch itself and the transmission would not
cause the shake. Maybe the brakes are dragging or the e-brake drags,
that would make it hard for the motor to get the car moving! Put it in
neutral and see if you can roll the car on a flat, level driveway. If
nothing is dragging you have to go over the motor and find out why it
doesn't have enough power. Start with the mechanical and vacuum
advance and the base timing. Make sure both advance mechanisms are
working and the base timing is right.
