Engine shudder during freeway acceleration

Hi and help please.
A. During freeway acceleration only the engine, steering wheel shudders until I let off on the accelerator. After that it rides smooth. Any ideas on what this may be?
B. Right front wheel under regular acceleration non freeway steering wheel shakes.

Thanks
2001 Prelude 122,000 miles. Transmission replaced under warrenty at about 50K.

Re: Engine shudder during freeway acceleration

Either suspension issues... tie rods, outta balance tire or motor mount...
Or a combo of them is my guess.

But me thinks it's suspension related. Go to an alignment shop and have them check it.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Engine shudder during freeway acceleration

Check the upper engine mount (upper engine, driver's side, black rubber bushing). If that's not it then lift the front end, remove the plastic catch pan (12mm IIRC), and check the lower transmission mount. As soon as you drop the pan you will see a bushing similar to the picture. Both of these are common failures for the s60. Shudder would likely be worst in low gears and bad shifts with the transmission, and would vibrate at idle if the engine mount. Any sort of cracking, or breakage at all would mean new ones are needed.

Drivers side/left side motor mount
Transmission/right side motor mount
rear motor mount
front motor mount

We don't have a lower transmission mount... etc. The shuddering you may be thinking of comes from shifting too early. With these cars, vibrations at idle are not as noticeable when stock. But considering this may be an auto due to the 50k replacement mentioned- anything failing in the trans would be possible lol

"tray" beneath the bumper/crossmember is all 10mm and it does not need to be removed to check any motor mount.

Some cracking is normal wear on 5th gen mounts. Front mount is known to be the first to fail followed by the drivers side. Cracking does not mean it needs to be replaced - only a rip/break would mean it needs to be replaced. You will usually hear a "thud" from the motor moving, when one fails.
