AdoreGSX is an unknown quantity at this point
Alright, well my car has been shaking for a while, first it was just under acceleration, how it is both that and idle. I'm thinking its the motor mounts but am not sure. What else could this be.

Also, my car has cut off randomly about 4 different times. It seemed to do it when I applied the brake. I have no clue what this could be. I was thinking mass air flow, or a vacuum leak or something, but I really need suggestions. Also are any of these problems easily fixable by me? I have an engine lift.

hmm with my car when it was about to stall I would just tap the brakes. Umm nothing to do with the clutch right? Like you don't put it in enough or something?

And the shaking, could be dirty fuel injectors perhaps, what octane of gas do you use? What I would try doing is pour some of that fuel injector cleaner in next time u get gas or if you have about a full tank of gas you can do now.

It could be AIr Mass Meter that needs changing or Fuel Injectors, Valves or Sensors need cleaning.
