1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette Question: Front end shake

 

Question

Visitor, Colorado Springs, CO, May 13, 2010, 21:21

Sometimes when I accelerate from a complete stop, my mini-van will "shimmy" or shake a few feet into the acceleration. IT only last about a half second. Any ideas? Is it the transmission?

    Your vehicle is front wheel drive, I would check the engine mounts, check the axles for wear, check the front suspension for wear to rule out it being a transmission related problem.
