My 2000 Plymouth Neon shakes when I try to take off fast, like it feels like the engine is jumping. Usually happens around 20mph, i can prevent it usually by starting off slow Someone said it could be someone with a vacuum (by the way i know nothing about cars) Also said might be some cables How do I check my vacuum or whatever? And is this really bad for my car? its been going on for a long time now

fuel line has a sludge blockage, check the line for dents you will have to get the line replaced if there are any dents that could be the problem - if there is a fuel line filter remove it blow out the line with compressed air, there may also be sludge in the gas tank this is best cleaned out by a mechanic who has the time and patience and knows what he is doing. Its a sign your gas tank is slowly corroding and will soon have to be replaced...
If it does this when you are stopping it could be a strut or a caliper locking up. If it does this when it is idling then it is most likely the Master cylinder or more precisely that vacuum line that runs to the top of the booster having a leak or having too much vacuum. The 2000 had the option of ABS and if you are feeling it in the brake pedal then it could just be the ABS acting up. It was Optional in 2000 and not installed on all models.
This is to Funny cause i have done all the same things and also changed the struts and still have this clunking noise , Now there is a creeeeeking noise when the car turns .lol . Now the sterring wheel shakes at low and high speeds . I am now thinking that it might need new wheel bearings

sounds like poor circulation of engine coolant. When stationary, if you increase the engine revs, does it blow hot ? if so, then i think it may be the water pump, that needs to be replaced. Have you lost any engine coolant, low level would also cause this problem. If so, then you need to see where you are losing the water and rectify that. Hope this helps
I'm pretty sure you would have service engine light on if you had vacuum leak! any how these cars are usually pretty good solid air hoses etc!if you have eng light OBD 2 scan for fault codes don't play the ge$$ing game!don't worry if you have idle problem that engine light will soon appear then scan if you do have air leak you will hear a whistle sound listen closely but keep in mind 10 switches can cause rough idle!air vent stuck open locate the intake park some times rodents make nests!!!seen it before or perhaps cable jumped off?linkage good places to start hope this helped
You may have an engine vacuum leak/bad fuel system or electrical fault.With the loud whistling sound id go with vacuum leak.find where that noise is coming from and block it off to stop it leaking if it is a vacuum hose or other leak,Make sure your air box and tube to the throttle body are not loose and correctly mounted.Is the air filter clean and air box properly locked down so it can only get air from the intake tube and to the throttle body ?
