Hello, I'm Danny.

It sounds like you might be having clutch chatter. You say it goes away when you depress the clutch when shaking? Is this the original clutch that came with the car or has it been replaced? Let us know and we'll go from there. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Hello! Thank you in advance for your answer. So at fast speed when I push the clutch the vibration goes away, and when pushing gas pedal it starts vibrating the more you push gas the bigger vibration. I don't know about the original clutch because I bought the car 3 days ago. Another question is, it dangerous to drive with this problem? Thanks

It sounds like the clutch may be falling apart. To be sure here is a guide to help see what's going on:
