SHAKES

2001 Pontiac Montana • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 197,000 miles

I just bought a 2001 Pontiac Montana. It was sitting in a barn for 6 months. I got it safetied and started to drive it as I pushed on the gas it shakes. This happens if I push alittle harder on the gas at the begining of the drive it only happens between 0km/hr to 20km/hr once the speed is over 20 it is fine. What is wrong with it I have been told a few things such as transmition skipping 1st gear, fuel filter needs cleaning, air filter needs cleaning and old gas. Could you give me your thoughts? Thank You

If your having an idle issue, clean throttle-body and iac/idle air control where applicable. Isn't 20km like 10 mph?
