Shakes or Wobbles problem
1998 Honda Accord 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 128000 miles
My 1998 Honda Accord LX has a bad vibration which is worse when accelerating or decelerating. It is noticable between 30-70 but virtually non-existent at 70mph or above. As soon as I take my foot off the gas and start to coast, it shakes like I have a broken belt in one of my tires (my tires were checked and they're fine). I've had every item replaced in the front end; struts, all bushings, ball joints, tie-rod ends, and end links, rotors, pads, 4 brand new wheels. A 4-wheel alignment was done, tires were balanced not once but twice while I stood by and watched (all good). First I suspected struts so I replaced those. Then I thought the frontend components were just worn out so I installed an entire new frontend kit (Honda parts). Then I was told that I had 1 bent rim so I bought a whole new set. After all of this, I STILL have bad vibration as described above! I sure hope some sharp Honda mechanic can tell me what's drastically wrong with an otherwise wonderful moneypit. Er. Car.
