Vibration when I accelerate in my 2003 Audi A4 1.8T

When I accelerate in my 2003 Audi A4 1.8T I can feel a vibration on the pedal that I had never felt before. When I get it up to 55mph the vibration is prominent and I can hear a humming sound from the engine. This happened after my min oil light came on and the oil has now been changed.

    Have exactly the same car with the same problem at the moment. Have driven it for 78k miles now and noticed that since the low oil level light has come on, which I then got 'fixed' via a service, the car is sounding a lot rougher than usual and can feel it vibrating through the throttle pedal.



    Need to take the car back as the warning light is still coming on when driven hard. Garage thought it was a oil pressure switch that was causing the problem and replaced it. Now not so sure.

If car shakes whilst acelerating and goes off when you let you foot off throttle then could well be a drive shaft cv joint

My 1999 Audi S8 feels as though the handbrake is on, trans/power


this car has a fuzzy logic gearbox.if you drive using the first 1/3 of the pedal your gear changes will be smoother and fuel consumption will improve BUT the car will feel limolike to drive.the second 1/3 of travel will accelerate/change higher up the rev range and use more fuel.and you guessed it the last third is for idiots like me that want to feel the power....also always use the highest octane fuel you can get(minimum 95ron) ecm knows good stuff...and changes knock/timing accordingly.lastly,try a dose of redexe(or a lot) to clean out fuel system/injectors works wonders....

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.

Where do you feel the vibration? if you feel it where you sit it is coming from back which is usually rear brakes. If you feel the vibration in your feet and hands it is coming from the front which could be your ABS or front brakes.

Wobbling of car while accelerating


the u joints in the drive shaft. (CV joints on front wheel drive) more strss on the joints when accelerating so they cause the vibration. no stress/load smooth run. Replace the joints and you'll feel a big difference.
