Sounds more like a bad CV Axle or universal joint.

Vibration


It absolutely can be, but anyway you should hear that noise when accelerating the engine from idle dont need to drive, just press gas pedal from idle and if there is a strange noise in exhaust then the honeycomb will be loose

1996 Cadillac deville. I am having power transfer issues. Feels like the car has a rougher and rougher idle. When I push on the accelerator I amay or may not get the power I expect and it may take a moment...


I doubt it.
Usually the CV joints make noise on turns.
You would need to figure out if the delay in moving the gas pedal is engine or trans. If the engine RPM does not change, its an engine problem.
Could be the throttle position sensor, or a fuel problem. The miss could be ignition or fuel related. The ticking could be a spark knock as if you were using cheap gas. Or an exhaust leak.
Is the check engine light on ?

Vibration in accelerator pedal


Exhaust bent and touching the frame of body is one possibility. Have it put on a lift and checked for this condition.

I have a 97 merc cougar xr7 4.6 v8 I had a weird vibrating hesitation while accelerating thru the gears. It feels like it's almost running on 7 cylinders. I opened the hood and manually reved the engine...


i've been telling people exhaust leak for their problems all night... and you know what... i think it's an exhaust leak =)

seriously check everything from the block to the manifold and look for anything not connected. If you can smell strong exhaust under the hood as opposed to standing behind the car, or if your air filter get dirty incredibly fast, or if your performance degrades (generally cuz i know cars are touchy and weird) as your foot pushes on the gas (not necessarily higher rpm, but actually burning more gas) particularly when it gets hot, that really might be it.

Vibrates when gas pedal pressed.


1. Check the ball-joint.

2. Check the Tye-rods.

3. Your shock absorbers/ struts.

4. Wheel balancing and alignment.

Good luck.

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.
