Q: Car shakes and when I accerlerate, it shakes even more

asked by on

I had this problem for 3 days already. I was driving 25 mph and when I tried going faster, it wouldn't go, it would just shake. So when I pressed the gas pedal slowly, it would go but then I stopped and it kept shaking. I changed the mass airflow sensor yet it keeps doing the same thing. I dont know what else could it be, can you help?

My car has 245723 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
