Uhhh well somebody told me its my alternator?? Uhhhh that doesnt make sense either. My car has recently decided that she does not want to be alive anymore. :( Just threw out $500 to some scum bag to replace my timing belt and water pump and blahhh blahhh blaaaahhhh! It has gotta better since then though so maybe you should get your timing belt checked?? If that slips youre fucked.

If the alt was going bad, you might see stumbling due to not producing enough voltage for proper ignition. But then you would also have other issues as well.

dude, you paid 500 for a single cam timing job? come on dude, thats an easy job, worst part is breaking the crank bolt loose, thsoe are always a bitch if the timing is over 100k miles old.

dude

that sucks homey, i once wanted my car to quit leaking oil so bad i took to mechanic and i told him i needed head gasket but to also replace any other gaskets or seals that might look bad on the way. so dude says okay, and calls me the next day says car's ready and said it wasn't the head gasket, just crankshaft seal, he didn't do what i asked him to do and he charged 200 bucks. 3 to 4 days later oil still leaking and oil in the coolant system. i feel your pain, just gotta be patient and make sure you get as close to 100% as possible of knowing what the problem is and don't let anyone change your mind for you once you've reached that point. but as for shaking on accel maybe check the fuel pump and its pressure, i know it can really screw things up

mine does the same thing. its not too much of a problem because it only happens if you slam on the gas really fucking hard. just punching doesnt do it in my integra but idk. i live with it.

Are the wheels balanced? Toe and camber checked? bad bushings in the suspension? alignment done? Some axles vibrate bad due to poor quality, you replace one recently?
