I have a 1990 Chevy 1500. It is a single cab, long wheel base model housing a 350 V8-5.9L. I had allowed someone to borrow the vehicle and during that time my driver side brakes evidently locked up. I ending up replacing everything on that hub including the brake lines. I finally retrieved the truck with a flat tire and immediately had a set of 4 new tires put on and a bent idler arm replaced. Approximately 2 weeks later I noticed that when slowly speeding up the truck would randomly start to shudder. I replaed the plugs, wires, rotor button, distributor cap, U-Joints, and fuel filter. It is now about 6 months later and the truck is almost not driveable. It seems to hesitate randomly during driving ( no engine rev ) and shakes when beginning to speed up and when I take my foot off of the pedal. The truck seems to be running fine, but shakes tremendously only when I am beginning to speed up or immediately when I am letting off of the gas. Some times after I stop and the truck is running it will sit smooth and then "jump" with a thud and start shaking. It seems as if something is engaging or disengaging and shutter or hesitates wen doing so. I started the truck this morning and the Parking Brake light was on. Of course the parking brake was not engaged and I did not have any feeling of lurching while driving. Could this be related, but most importantly what is causing this shaking?
have the same problem?
