Question about 1990 Honda Accord
First one is when i go from first to second gear the car revs up like it's in the wrong gear and when im driving and i go to stop my steering wheel vibrates and shakes a lot when i step on the brakes. could someone please help im a female and i feel like i get taken advantage of by the mechanics just because they know that i dont know much.
The majority of braking comes from your front brakes and this is likely the cause to the shaking when applying the brakes. I agree with fenrias, most likely the rotors. To replace the rotors and brake pads on these cars is cheap. If you plan on keeping the car for more than a few months, I would go ahead and change the rotors and pads for the front wheels. If you've changed them recently, than you may want to consider other options like alignment, including control arms or ball joints. Either way, braking is important and you should get it fixed for sure.

First one, your clutch might be slipping and need adjusting/replacement(I'm assuming it's a manual transmission), try getting it adjusted first. If you have an automatic, your fluid might be low or filter clogged.
Second one, most common cause of the vibration is warped or rough brake rotors. Sometimes a wheel alignment will help(you would be able to tell- if your front tires are worn unevenly)
