Feeling a Little Trembling on Driving

Hi, I'm driving a pretty old car. All has been fine, but just recenty, I discovered that the car was a little trembling on driving. The feel was more obvious when I stop the car for trafic or so. And resuming from the stop was not as smooth as before. Also the temperature gauge tends to swing up to the high level when I suddenly have to hit breaks a few times on an otherwise normal highway drive.

Could any one tell me what these signs might possibly indicate?

Thanks a lot!

trembling could be as simple as a out of balnce wheel , coiuld be a tire seperating. could be loose lugnuts , could be lots of things more info would help.

temp gauge sounds like poor electrical contact or gauge fgoing bad.

my wifes 84 bmw you have to tap hard on the top of the dash to get a temp reading then the guage goes back to 0 after a few miles

Thanks, guys.

The car is '91 Toyota Corrolla one. The trembling feeling is more obvious when I stop my car. And resuming from the stop won't go as smooth as before. I first suspected that it might be transmission problem and, if it is, whether it's worth of repairing.

Rotate your tires front to back, see if there is any difference
Check for any play in the front wheels, any wiggle when holding it at 12 and 6 o'clock ("up & down"), or 9 and 3 o'clock ("side to side")
