Hey all,

I was hoping someone could give me some direction in diagnosing what is wrong with my sonoma.

The truck will start and then will idle for 5-10 seconds and then the engine just starts shaking violently. If I try to put it into gear 1st, reverse, or whatever it won't catch. But then after I try that I hit the clutch again and it idles really high rpm and then after the 5-10 seconds the shaking occurs again.

Another thing to note is I just had the transmission rebuilt and the clutch replaced about 9 months ago and I have only driven about 6000 miles with the replacements.

thanks for any and all help!
