shaking problem

Ok so I got in the jeep this morning and started, it a minute later it started shaking in the steering wheel bad and the jeep was shaking as well. This only happend while i put the jeep in drive. I put it back in park and it stopped, back in drive and it did it again. Turned the jeep off put my foot slightly on the pedal and cranked it let it rev up. Put it back in drive and no problem. What is going on here Also the jeep was not moving while this happened, it was completely at a stand still.

Maybe a vacuum leak?

While the Jeep was shaking, did you notice how the engine was acting? Did it start to idle rough and seem like it was going to stall?

Try having your fuel pressure checked to help rule out a fuel pump/regulator issue.

It did this about four weeks ago as well that time it did rough idle, all I did was rev the rpms to 2000 trying to clear anything out and it went away. Could this be a fuel pump??

Could be a fuel pump not supplying the right pressure as someone above said. Does your jeep start hard in the morning?

No it starts right up. It has only done this twice now. So is this the beginning of a fuel pump going out? If so is it hard to replace?

The reason I say vacuum leak is because when you shift into drive, the engine tilts - possibly exposing a cracked hose.
