Why My car shakes when I accelerate but stops once I let off the gas?

There are a few reasons your car may shake when accelerating but not coasting. The most common reason is that the engine is misfiring. When the engine misfires, it doesn't run as smoothly as it should and can cause the car to shake. Another possible reason is that the spark plugs or ignition coils are dirty or damaged. This can also cause the engine to misfire and shake. If your car is shaking when accelerating, it's best to take it to a mechanic of FixMyCar to have it checked out. We can help you diagnose the problem and get your car running smoothly again.
