Q: Car acting up and it’s shaking and stallings

asked by on

My car starts shaking above 55 and when I go up a hill it shakes more and making a hmmmmmm noise. The whole passenger seat along with steering wheel vibrate and the more I accelerate the more it shakes. Also when I stop at a red light or in general stop and then I press the gas pedal the car jerks or pulls back and bit and then forward. And when I drive it feels as if I were on a bumpy road the whole time but I’m not.

My car has 127000 miles.
