Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

I would have the engine and transmission mounts checked for any wear or broken mount issues as this can cause this fault under hard acceleration like you see here.If this is or was checked and found to be o.k. already let me know so we can continue.This is a common cause for this issue as well as worn suspension or steering components.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
