I have a 2008 Chevy Malibu 2.4l, when I'm stopped in park it runs fine. When it's in idle in Drive, it has a good shake to it. I've replaced spark plugs and wires, coil packs, did an oil change and topped fluids, and it still continues to slightly. Then there's an issue with the acceleration, it has trouble picking up speed and when I get it up to about 30mph, it gets a little jerky, and the front end will begin to shake feeling like a jeeps "death wobble". I'm not sure on any recalls about the Cats or any other recalls but I'm not too great on cars and could really use some info/help.

Full scan for failure codes in all 4 code families is needed. This way you know where to start looking.
Parts stores may only scan one to two code family's but a code scan is step one on today's vehicles as codes help point the direction to start looking in.
We need scan results to give any sort of helpful advice.

Thank you. I'll be trying to get that today and I'll inform on what I'm told.
