Engine shake... any help greatly appreciated, first time poster Sign In

Have a 1999 Chevy Malibu, all of a sudden yesterday it started shaking while idling in traffic or at a light. When I put it in park it seems to calm down, still there but not nearly as bad. When idle it seems like it almost wants to shut the engine off, and every once in a while it seems to have trouble slightly when accelerating from idle. Already made an appointment to drop the car off tonight to be looked at, I know nothing about cars just wondering what I should be expecting price wise, or anyone's best guesses of what it could turn out to be

Pretty hard to tell you the price before you know what you are buying.

Sounds like it could be a misfire issue but they will have to determine the cause.
