Customer Question

i have an 2006 honda odyssey
when im crusing at 40-60mph, the rpms are at 1800rpms
so basically i am in overdrive or high gear
when i decided to slowly accelerate to a higher speed, the rpms are going up slowly, then the car shakes like its misfiring.
then i left off the gas and accelerate with a little more throttle response and the shaking is gone.

Thank you. One last question. Has the vehicle been tuned up per the maintenance requirement?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
it has
Expert:  Fixitman replied 11 months ago.

Thank you. I am sorry for the delay in getting back with you. There are a few common causes of this. The most common being a failing drive axle. The CV joint in the axle fails and causes this to occur. I have also seen engine mounts cause this as well at the valve timing actuators. If the axles are fine I usually look into these next. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I replaced both cv axles becaue it was vibrating on acceleration. Would cv axles cause a hesitation at low rpm going 45mph trying to slowly increase speed steadily?

If they were binding they could. Did this start right after they were replaced. The hesitation sounds more like the timing actuators.
