Have you checked for vacuum leaks?
Have you checked the vacuum hose going to the brake power booster? Does it get worse when you step on the brakes?
Does it only shake at an idle or also at high speeds?
Was there any indication of this gradually getting worse over time?
Have you done a cylinder compression check lately?
Have you checked your fuel pressure?
A fuel pump may work to start the engine but may be worn to the point that it can no longer supply volume. Even checking the psi could normally rule it out. But if you run a flow volume check over 30 seconds you can see if the fuel pump is failing. I would suggest doing this after checking checking for vacuum leaks.
This problem has gotten worse over time, and no I have not checked for vacuum leaks yet.
The running problem is intermittent some times it runs good and others it is rough at idle and no power on acceleration.
