    hey guys figure your the best to give me some advice was headed to Nashville and my truck started to shack under a load if I backed out of it it was baby smooth like always. I had stopped to let the girl take some pics and it started to rev up only thing I was thinking is please don't be running away I ran back to the truck but then it just went back to normal idle so I'm at a truck stop on 40 I'm all out of ideas on what it could be I'm driving a Ken worth with a Cummins in it

    Bad seal on the turbo, oil gets blown into cylinders, kind of like an avalanche effect; one possibility.

    Fuel pressure problem of some sort?????

    My 07 cat always did it when hot. Fan temp hot.. Fuel pump, lines, and finally injectors. She's golden. Only when the throttle was needed did it SHAKE.

    Sense its a 97 N14 I would go with what @snowwy said above. Its going to be a fuel delivery problem. Could be as simple as filters but I doubt it.
