Check motor mount. This can cause vibration under acceleration.

CV shafts "look" fine even when they're not. Grinding when turning or on acceleration is almost always the the CV joint. Replace the right side CV shaft. As far as the bearing being "loose", it is a pressed-on unit. I'd probably replace that too. Make sure you torque the CV spindle nu to the proper torque value. If you don't and it's too tight or too loose you will get an early failure of the bearing.

95 Plymouth Voyager harsh vibration when accelerating

Hi Ryan

Before you go for a steering rack replacement with that much play, go back to your CV joints check the shafts by turn each wheel on its own and watch closly the axles as they turn , Do they turn true or do they wobble you may have a seized CV joint find which one wobbles thats where your problem lies if they do wobble, they should not. If not go to ball joints, control arms may not be secured to chassie. Or Steering rack as you say half inch play sounds too much play something not right.

Clicking noise down by the front tires.

check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck

It starts In 3rd and when in 5th while still accelerating, a noise which sounds like it's coming from drivers front side, the best I can describe it is it sound like a commercial paint shaker shaking a...

Noises from axles can be really deceiving. The sound is transfered throuh the transaxle and can resonate through the entire vehicle. The turning to the left thing makes it sound like a problem in the right wheel/axle area. Wheel bearings and axles tend to make worse noise when they are on the OUTSIDE of the turn. More of the vehicle weight is shifted to the outside due to centrifugal force. Thus, if the noise is louder when turning left, this puts the right axle to the outside of the turn and the most likely to be the source of the noise. (and vise-versa) The fact that the noise calms down while cruising makes me believe that it is not a wheel bearing. Wheel bearings can make more noise in turns, however, they usually make a "roaring" or loud "humming" noise that gets louder with speed. An axle is more likely to change or get louder according to engine load more than rotational speed. (Way worse while accelerating or climbing a hill) I would be taking a hard look at the right axle.

I would need to drive this to try and diagnose the issue. Take it to a tire and front end shop and ask them to drive it and give you an idea what is wrong.

I accelerate my 2000 neon, and it vibrates and get grinding noise

Check the front drive axles and boots. A bad cv (constant velocity) joint can cause this.

Front end shakes when accelerating

The desciption you gave is exactly how it feels when you have an axle with a bad inner CV joint. It won't make a "clicking" noise like when you have a bad outer CV joint, but will shake pretty bad on accel. If you crawl under the car while it's on the ground (don't lift it) and grab on to the axle close to the inner CV joint and wiggle it, there shouldn't be very much play in it. If there is play in it, replace that axle.
