1995 Toyota Previa LE 4 Cyl 2.4L

Engine

During acceleration, while my foot is on the petal, the car shakes rather violently. Any ideas?

The issue seems to subside when my foot is not on the accelerator petal. I definitely feel it in the steering wheel. My guesses have been drive-train? Maybe rear-wheel differential?

Check the engine motor mounts.
Motor mounts (engine mounts) are used to connect a car engine to the car frame. They are usually made of rubber and metal. The metal portion connects to the engine on one side and to the frame on the other. The rubber is in-between to provide some flexibility (so engine shake doesn't cause the car to shake)
