    My 2002 tls has a wobble in the front as well, I have replaced every part possible ( upper control arms, engine mounts, half shaft, tires, rims so on and so on. The wobble happens at about 40km, 70 its bad, 90 it is almost gone. now the wierd thing is that it only happens under acceloration. Im on my 5th trany as of 10000 km ago. you have any ideas?

    Thanks Tyler

    If possible, take the vehicle to a parts store, somewhere where they can check the OBD-II code for free. That will help narrow down what might be causing the shaking.

    Without any information on what DTC (diagnostic trouble code), my best guess is that your engine is misfiring. Which would cause a vibration at idle or while driving. A common misfire problem on 3.2 TL's and CL's is a bad ignition coil.

    If you have a misfire DTC stored, that it is where I would start.

I think it's a bad ignition coil. u should take ur car to mechanic and have him check to see if ur car is misfiring.

My front end shakes sometimes over 55mph

There could be multiple possibilities to why this is happening. If by front end you mean your bumper, check the connection that connect the bumper to the frame. If you are missing some bolts, it will definately change the way your vehical drives. Your suspension may also be shot. Your car if fairly old, so that is not too unlikely. You may be in need of new shocks. I would also check your tires. If your tires are worn and lopsided, it will shake at high speeds as well. I hope this helps!

When I start my 92 acura legend the front end shakes quite a bit then settles into a normal idling. Next, I notice that when I place the car in reverse this shaking noise is also evident. the engine light...

get the check engine light code first. this should give u a good direction of where to start. could also be multiple other problems but start with the obvious check engine light first.

you may want to check the ground wire for the engine; if the car just shut down it's possibly an electrical. if the ends are corroded replace.
