Default Acura vibration & gas milage help?

So i own a 2005 Acura Tsx 6-Speed Manual Transmission, it is salvage title, im having two problems, one is as i pick up my speed, when im in 4th gear (between 3,500-4,500 RPM) going to fifth gear, my car starts vibrating in the front, as if my engine is moving sideways left & right, i know the motor mounts are good, my struts should be good, it feels as if something has too much tension, im assuming it could be my cv axles? Now problem two, this car is supposed to get me atleast 21 mpg, my job is 11.1 mpg, i had my gas tank about half & when i arrive to work itz near a quater tank, there's no leak signs of gas, i guess that means i need a tune up right? Like spark plugs & cables, please help me out my knowledge about cars is limited & want to fix this myself, thank you for your time

Why on earth would you buy a car with a salvage title? It's only good for scrap. Instead sell that piece of junk for scrap and get one with a clear title. In the end, you will be saving money.

actually it's your front axle....the front axles on the 2004-2005 TSX's were bad and they had a 'recall/notice' for fixing it, Acura doesn't fix axles, but they'd pay to have yours fixed at an axle/tire shop...but that was for then and you bought a salvage car, the recall/notice doesn't apply to you.

Like Henry said, you did a bad thing. You can't FIX a salvage's probably been in water (floods), accidents (one or many where the frame was bent and not fixed). When the car has been in a flood, there is NOTHING that will fix it. The wiring is bad, the engine was full of water and the body is already rusting out, there is a LOT of salt in water on the roads. (even without snow). To sell the salvage they buy a car and let it 'air' dry...maybe shampoo the carpets to make it 'smell and look''s not. They may clean the engine, it's NOT a good thing to have an engine CLEANED...

It was apparent that you know nothing about cars, when you said, 'tension' on the front end...

Now you're stuck with a lemon...

Next time, don't buy a salvage, used (without taking it to a REPUTABLE mechanic.)..
