    Between 17 and about 40 mph my car shakes left to right. Not sure if it's a tire issue or a engine mount maybe. It seems that once I lay off the gas it does not shake as bad. Once over 40 mph it's smooth again. I guess it's hard to see one of the engine mounts. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!!!

    I had a bad cv axle that gave me vibration while increasing speed. It would level off at say 65 but once i hit the throttle it was a shake in the steering wheel. It did not do it in neutral coasting mainly under load. The axles did not leak grease i guess it was age.
