YOU COULD HAVE CLOGGED FUEL FILTER AND FUEL INJECTORS.ALSO CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID.IF LOW TRANSMISSION WILL SLIP GOING UP HILL.NOT ENOUGH FLUID TO BUILD UP PRESSURE FOR OVER DRIVE.

SOURCE: Honda Accord 2003 - Engine and steering vibration

You might to have a tire shop check the wheel for roundness, not balance. A tire can be balanced and be out of round, causing the shaking you describe. On front wheel drive cars, the wheel/hub assembly may be bad, which a good tire shop can tell you if it is. Can't say if it will be expensive, the hub is relatively inexpensive. Labor will probably be the deal-breaker.

SOURCE: shaking when accelerating

Check the driveshafts/ Universal joints in the driveline.

SOURCE: Hesitation / missing / car shakes

Hello;
The problem is most likely break down of the spark plug wires. The demands on the spark during acceleration and load destroy the wires as they age. I would start there. Hope this helps.
Thanks;

What are the signs of bad spark plug in toyota avalon 2000 model


Vibration while braking usually points towards warped rotors which you will probably have to replace along with pads at the same time. As far as engine performance, you probably want to get a full tune-up. A good tune-up consists of spark plugs, wires(when applicable), induction cleaning service, and a new fuel filter.

Van shakes accelerating


Sounds like a miss under load, either a weak spark or fuel injector issue.
Is the check engine light on ?

1990 Cadillac deville was running fine today, then after a long drive uphill it began to vibrate/shudder when accelerating from stop or low speed if gas applied strongly. No problem at high speed, just...


I would check the fuel pressure, sounds like a fuel delivery problem...possible dirty fuel filter. The vibration is probably due to a missfire. Have you had had a tune up lately? Check for vacuum leaks. I hope this helps.

Sounds like the wheel balance is out on the new tyres, if the rears are out of balance expect the car to shake, if the fronts are out expect the steering to shake.
Best thing is to take it back and have the balance checked. Also good idea to stay with the same make and type of tyres all round.

1995 Nissan Quest - 110,000 miles, engine light has come on, engine runs rough, steering wheel seems to vibrate, shake, or shudder, does not want to accelerate, smell of burning plastic.


Have your engine mounts checked. I was experiencing the same type if things, and it turned out all 5 were cracked! (I also have the 1995).
