Sounds like big end [conrod] bearings
check the oil level & look for tarnish or discoloration
smell it to see if it smells burnt!
see if oil is gritty between your fingers & if it has glitter [metal particles ]
if it has any of these then further inspection is needed ASAP!
Cheers & good luck Rob.

I have a 2004 grand prix, When you are driving down the highway, and you take foot off gas, there is vibration

Hi Cheyenne:
- For the vibration, I'd be checking universal joints or CV jounts.
- Sounds like you've got your brakes figured out already. Time for some maintenance.

Car doesnt want to start after starting few minutes ago

Right discoinnect the battery then leave for half hour ,join the battery leads together with a bit of electrical wire ,then try again ,i have found that these later cars suffer from interference caused by a mobile phone lleft in the centre consul ,why i have no idea but it be something by the wiring being or having a bus line where a communial signal is sent down a wire to recievers on each unit which are activated by the frequency modulated signal ,If you can understand this jargon ,i have a earlier 94 XJ6 4litre and never have a problem but then its my sunday car as the price of petrol here in spain is not cheap

Good morning :) We recently bought a 2005 Acura

You may want to check into a recall!! If the problem occurs during accleration between 20-40 mph, Call your local dealer.

Engine rotates but will not start. I have spark and can hear the fuel pump relay click, but I don't know if the fuel pump is working. T in Georgia

the only method that work was pulling the fuel pump fuse,wait 1 minute, crank her with out your foot being on the gas for 15 sec. Put the fuse back in , and start her up normaly. 1 st attempt she started but cut off, redid the process over , got in started her up normally, but had my foot 1/4 way down on the acclerator. She started and feathered the gas til she was fully operational. Let her stay on for about 10 minutes then took her out for a good long spirited
