    Did you check your axles to see if the boots are ripped? Also, you might want to check your motor mounts to see if it's torn..

      a torn motor mount would do that?

        Yes sir.. especially I believe the rear motor mount will cause vibration if it's torn or cracked.

        But I would check the axles first.. vibration on acceleration is most likely caused by axles.

            so i checked today under the car today after class and the boots on the axels are fine and the rear motor is fine too. but i was look at my front strut rods and i think the bushings are going out. could this be my problem cuz the vibration is like a hoping from the front.

              Axles !!! Don't buy reman's like me ! I'm on my 2nd set and so far so good(Its been a day), I don't expect them to last too long though, the 1st set lasted maybe 4-5 months.

                  i went through the same problem for six months. 8 sets of napa and autozone axels. replaced all motor mounts with solid innovative, all new radius rod bushings, tires, different wheel, only thing that fixed it was honda remans. little pricey but i have not had a vibration since then.

                    Teg Youngin - sometimes the boot on the axles doesn't have to rip for it to vibrate. What you can do is jack the front end up and put the car in gear and see if the wheel wobbles when it's spinning.

                    OR while the front end is jacked up.. grab and shake the axle and see/feel if there's any major play. As for the radius rod bushing.. those hardly tend to go out.. just get a socket in there and try to tighten the bushing mounts.. when those get loose, they can cause wobbles or clunking..

                    But like most said.. it might just turn out to be your axles if you're getting vibration on takeoff...

                      well today i was looking at the car and was looking at my motor mounts and saw the my driver side mount was broken so i replaced that and a little bit of vibration went away but i will still jack the car up and check the axels.

                        Ive had this problem numerous times and its always been bad axles in my case. These axles can look perfect but in my case they never were perfect. bought new ones, solved my problem. Bad motor mounts are normally more like...Vibration at idle and wheel hop IMO. im no expert tho, just have had this problem more than once.

                        And yeah liek the other guy said, dont get remanufactured ones. Just asking for trouble and headaches...i cant count how many of them i went through before just buying new ones and solving the problems once and for all.

                        Do you have any problems with vibration at highway speeds?..again a sure sign.

                        problem is with vibrations it can be anything as simple as a loose bolt too so make sure you pull and push and check each side very thoroughly.

                          the vibration is only like during accleration like 0-50 and then it quits. and i went through all my stuff today and checks the axels out again and jacked the car up and ran started it up and drove through gears and had no vibrations. so i think it was my motor mount cuz most of the vibrating is gone since i fixed it.
