Shakes or Wobbles problem
2004 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 44K miles
Ok, Here is the deal.
About 2 weeks ago I noticed a problem that has developed in my Accord.
When I am driving and hit 20-35 mph zone the car wobbles. Its more noticeable from the passenger side. The car feels like a wheel is about to fall off. This wobble is pronounced while I am accelerating, just normal accelerating. As soon as I feel it, I let off the gas and it goes away, I get back on the gas and it resumes but really dissapates after it goes past 35 mph.
So, Basically its only doing it when I have my foot on the gas pedal accelerating.
I felt at first I had a slipped belt in a tire. I put new tires on it the other day and it still does it.
I have jacked up each corner of the vehicle and tried to see of there is any play in the wheels. There is no play, Its normal. I have had excellent luck with Hondas in the past.
This car only has 40K miles on it and I bought it brand new, It hasnt been abused or anything like that.
We have a couple Honda Specialist here in town so I am going to let one take a look.
My gut feeling is that it has something to do with a axle but I am not sure.
We checked the motor mounts and they were Ok also. Visual inspection on the lift whre I work revealed nothing out of the ordinary, nothing looked like it had been hit or damaged.
At first I thought this wobble was coming from the back but now I am not sure.
Any opinions would be appreciated. This is my 5th Honda and this is the first problem I have had with any I have owned in the past.
