Start with basics and do a major tune up by replacing all engine fluids and filters.
Replace the spark plugs, distributer cap, rotor and if needed wires.
While you are looking at the engine you need to check for bad motor mounts. In 1st gear let out the clutch slowely with the emergency brake on. If the motor lifts you have a bad motor mount.
