You don't say what vehicle you have so I'll just give the usual answers. Drive shafts worn. Prop shaft joint worn. Suspension bushes. Engine mounts. Subframe mounts. Get all this checked by a tech or good DIY mechanic. Get a knowledgeable person to drive it, they may get a feel of what's wrong. If its an auto, check the trans oil level is correct. Vibration can come from trans if low on oil.

Balance tires, check wheel bearings, if that does not work its probably idle arms or tie rod bushings that need replaced...good luck

SOURCE: front end vibration

It sounds as though your car has two seperate problems. The first problem with the vibration that goes away when you let off the gas pedal is caused by a bad INNER CV joint. It only vibrates when you are accelerating because that is when the joint is under stress. Your vehicle has two axles, each with an inner and an outer joint. My suggestion is to have a competent shop determine which is the bad side and replace the entire axle. The second vibration which occurs at any speed is most likely cause by either a bad tire, or a bent rim.

SOURCE: I have 2003 Dodge Durango and when I accelerate

How many miles on your Durango? This could be a failing U joint on either driveshaft. Could also be a ties out of balance or going bad.

Since the vibration goes away when coasting, I am voting for a driveline issue.

SOURCE: vibration from somewhere when coasting at high speed

Check centre bearing on tail shaft, for excessive up and down movement.

Pathfinder vibration


check the "u" joints for looseness and wear especially the front drive shaft . check sliding splines . The vibration is a harmonic vibration normally associated with worn "U" joints --bent or out of balanced ---worn /seizing slip joints or being excited by a failing drive thrust bearing in the diff. ( big bearing directly behind the pinion gear that takes all the load on drive) check the magnet on the diff drain plug for metal bits.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner, 2WD, 4.0L V6, 5-speed Automatic has a severe vibration from the speed of 20 mph to 50 mph, then the vibration will slightly deminish.


Is it the engine vibrating or the car? If its the car itself it sounds like u need to have the tires checked & balanced.

I have a bad vibration that appears to be coming from the rearend. Started out only at certain speeds now it's all the time. Stops when you let off the gas. Shakes the entire vehicle.


A couple of things to check. It may be a wheel bearing, shock, cv joint, or a very common cause is that one or both of your back tires are worn irregularly. This causes the car to shimmy and get progressively worse as you have explained. It usually happens on the front end of the car, but can occur in the back.

1990 Cadillac deville was running fine today, then after a long drive uphill it began to vibrate/shudder when accelerating from stop or low speed if gas applied strongly. No problem at high speed, just...


I would check the fuel pressure, sounds like a fuel delivery problem...possible dirty fuel filter. The vibration is probably due to a missfire. Have you had had a tune up lately? Check for vacuum leaks. I hope this helps.

2006 gmc 2500 vibration around 60 mph stops when I let off gas


Usually a vibration is due to one or more parts that have become worn or damaged. I'm not sure why you mentioned the tires but don't disregard them unless you know that they are fine. Check for correct inflation (on the door jam), for uneven tread wear, or bubbles and damage.
Other things that can cause a vibration is the front-end needing an alignment, a tire that is unbalanced, worn out steering components (like a wheel-bearing), defective u-joints and/or an unbalanced drive-shaft, or low gear-oil level in the drive-axle can cause damage to the ring & pinion gear. The damage would primarily be on one side. So when you let off the gas pedal the sound goes away. Check as much as you can and let me know how it is going.

Front end vibration


on both my Camrys, i had this problem. You could really notice it when you were driving down the road going 40-60 mph and punch the gas - car would vibrate, let off the gas - vibration stops, punch the gas - car vibrates...... On both, it was the CV joints. It is much easier to just replace the drive axles (with the new cv joints and boots already installed). For my last replacement, i think thy were only around $65 each.
