when car is in drive it starts shaking and vibrating on 2002 Kia Spectra

2002 kia spectra automatic trans when on the highway , shift good, but when I stop and try to go it doesnt have any power unless I shift to park raise the rpm and then it goes?

Asked by for the 2002 Kia Spectra
UNFORTUNATLY YOU DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH INFO TO DIAG. THIS WAY,HOWEVER THE FIRST THING I WOULD CHECK IS YOUR CATALITIC CONVERTER. A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE CAN START WITH SIMALAR SYMPTOMS. THE ACT OF REVING UP THE RPM WHILE THE ENGINE IS NOT UNDER A LOAD CAN BLOW OUT SMALL PARTICALS THUS ELIMINATING SOME OF THE BLOCKAGE TEMPORARALY. GOOD LUCK.
