I have a 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4 CVT that is vibrating (intermittantly) when accelerating. The vibration feels like it is from underneath and through accelerator. It is more prone to happen if going...


Sounds like a driveline/driveshaft issue. Either loose bolts or a bent shaft. Nut & bolt the shaft. If it continues after that, you may have a bent shaft.

Vibration on acceleration


Mitsubishi's have always had problems with their throttle bodys carboning up, Magnas and Pajeros especially. Clean the throttle body with a can of carburettor cleaner, don't forget to open the butterfly and get right in behind it. Also check your ignition leads with a multimeter, any more resistance than 4000 ohms per foot of lead length, replace the lead. The misfiring may also have now damaged your oxygen sensor, check this with an analog multimeter, the O2 sensor output should vary between 0 and 1 volt as the needle moves between these readings (to vary the mixture) if not then replace the O2 sensor also. This problem is not related to your tyres.

Vehicle vibrates under acceleration but when you back off vibration disappears - saab 2.2 tdi


If this happens when acceleration in a straight line, it indicates either a cylinder misfire, in which case the MIL lamp will be lit or, you have worn CV joints at each end of the drive shafts to the driven wheels.

Outer CV wear is usually manifest by a 'rhythmic clicking' on turns under load. Vibration usually is inner CV wear.

From a stand still if you accelerate hard vehicle starts vibra


Well, kind of short on description, issues typical in this complaint are misfiring and U joints.

To emininate the engine, does the vibration happen on power braking, without the vehicle moving?

Begin to accelerate vehicle sputters and vibrates


The vibration could be caused by regular misfiring of the engine. I'd check for vacuum leaks, failed ignition wiring; check at night for sparks under the hood where they don't belong. If the wiring hasn't been changed since the truck was new, it's probably overdue. Bad wiring can also become sensitive to high ambient moisture too.

check your upper control arms, does it happen when you step on the brakes or just when driving, you might need a balance of all your wheels or the tires you have could be bad.

Have your tires and wheels checked. Sometimes they throw a weight and then you get a vibration. Other times you can have a bad tire and catch it before it blows.

Vibration on the floor underneath gas pedal


I would venture to say your exhaust is hitting your frame, or, you may need new motor mounts. The exhaust is what I would lean toward. If you can imagine your exhaust sitting under your vehicle, and the fact that the vehicle has a little age, the motor mounts probably give a little, causing the motor to move slightly on acceleration and deceleration, thus your exhaust is going to move, and may be vibrating on whatever its touching. Good luck.

Vibration on fuel pedal of 1999 suburvan


This may be caused by bad motor mounts. Lift your hood and then start the engine. Put it in reverse and hold the brake. Push on the gas peddle and watch the engine. If it trys to roll over they may be bad. Be careful.
