When the car is in park,it sounds normal when i put it in drive it putter and shaking

There is likely a problem in the fuel, ignition, or air induction systems. When you put the car in drive, you are "loading" the engine and obviously due to some fault the engine lacks sufficient power at that point to continue to run smoothly. The cause could be as simple as faulty spark plugs, plugged injectors, a faulty mass air flow sensor, EGR system and quite a few other "systems". You could have a vacuum leak. Check for diagnostic troubles codes stored in the engine computer and look, too, at secondary firing patterns at idle to see if those traces (oscilloscope) hold any clues. If you want these steps performed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a sputtering diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you and get your car running smoothly again. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
