Default 90 honda accord shaking during acceleration only?

Doesn't matter what gear or how fast really car will shake when I get on the gas but stops as soon as I let off the gas. car is a 5spd. runs and idles fine no problems with the motor at all and the car shifts perfectly fine also.

fuel filter wouldn't cause my problem plugs are new and filter is new which neither one of those would cause my problem either its only during acceleration in any gear and car runs and cruises fine. as for the motor mounts I checked them they seem to be fine no cracks or anything also the front torque mount is a polyurethane mount. only mount im unsure of the condition is the rear mount. but I recently put a new one in it about two months ago.

Ok so I replaced my axles and still get the same vibration its not as violent as before though. Also I noted it is mostly doing this in second gear around 20-30 mph after 30mph in second its barely noticeable third has it a little around 40 to 45 driving normally If i stay on it in third its noticeable all the way up to 90mph but still not as bad as second running 20-30mph also all suspension parts asides from the front traction bar are new and in great condition. I have done some research and people say that you can buy bad axles new or that there is a specific kind like or the OEM ones that are good Quality parts that people have replaced advance axles with and their vibration is gone is this true

Due to the age of your vehicle you may have a motor or transmission mount that is bad...they have rubber bushings inside and they may be cracked ..have someone look into that

I had a similar problem over 55 mph. Shaking in the steering wheel was most noticeable during acceleration. Balancing the tires fixed it. But you say it happens in any gear, so maybe you have a different problem. Could be bad CV joints. Do you notice any clicking sounds on sharp turns?

Most of the time mysterious torque-sensitive vibrations show up on Honda vehicles it turns out to be a bad CV joint. Diagnosis is very difficult if the boot isn't torn (not so mysterious if the boot is torn!). I have not seen a Honda vibrate under torque because of a bad engine mount, but it could happen.

There are mechanics these days that will try & rip you off. Take it in to someone you trust. Or if you have a friend who knows about cars, let them take a look at it. But you should really have it checked out. Because it could be a number of things that is wrong. Everything from cv joints, axles, bad motor mounts and even bad tires will make your car shake.
