My trucks belt recently began squeaking when I started it. It has just begun to get cool where I live. Also, when I am idling, it shudders. It feels like it is from the engine and there has been bluish smoke emitting and an occasional scent of burning oil. Also, the rpm's are higher to switch gears. There is also a shaking in the wheel when I accelerate past fifty mph. I do not have much money and I am worried I wont be able to afford to fix it.
Do you

Belt and tensioner are recommended replacement at 60,000 miles it may be the source of the shaking. Disconnect belt and start engine if shake goes away it may be in accessories. Then scan for codes auto parts does for free. For shaking past fifty mph check all u-joints if you see rust around seals then they need replacing.
