CAR SHAKES WHEN ACCELERATING

1996 Acura Integra

Shakes or Wobbles problem
1996 Acura Integra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 225000 miles

My car seems to vibrate and shake when I reach speeds between 40-50 mph. It goes away if I let off the gas. Does this seem like a alignment problem or an engine problem. I read somewhere where it could be the motor mount. How much does something like that cost?

First step to do is eliminate the wheels being an issue. It may be a dynamic imbalance (you must balance the wheel again) or the tires may be bad.

It sounds like a motor mount to me. But it could be a number of things. I cant see it being the wheels when you let of the gas and it stops. Check out rockauto. Com they usually have some pretty good prices on stuff and gives you lots of manufactures to comepare to.
