F150 2003 5.4L Vibration throughout truck with acceleration

Noticeable vibration grows when vehicle speed increases. Doesn't change with engine RPM only with vehicle speed. Same vibration whether in 4x4 or 2 wheel drive. Steering is fine.

When you say "throughout" that would indicate that it is coming from the rear of the truck..

There could be a number things causing this..

It could be a bad tire or a broken belt on a tire..
A test for this is - roll along at 3 miles per hour.. If you feel a wobble - that is probably a broken belt in a tire..
Or maybe even a bent axle..

It could be a bad universal in the drive shaft..

It could be a broken shock/strut or mount or both..

Best of luck !

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.

1994 Camaro rough oepration and reduced power


I have a 94, and mine ran rough until I had a new computer control chip put in. The dealer doesnt sell then anymore, so you would need to get a reconditioned one (is that the right word?) from an auto parts store. I had to get this done twice because the first one was bad so they swapped it out. There was one more thing the former owner did to fix a rough run situation, I will post it when I find the receipt. Also, it smoothed out even more when I changed out the motor mounts. WAY less vibration. I love to drive this car now!

Bad vibration when in gear but idle speed


I'm not sure exactly which vehicle you have so I'll try to be genera yet as specific as possible to help you determine the problem. I'm assuming here its a Gas Fuel engine.

1.) if its a carburetor type engine, You may need to adjust the RPM to increase or lower the Idle. Its commonly called the Ideal screw and adjust the air fuel ratio to stabilize the engine fuel mixture to increase the RPM.. its found on the Carburetor.

2.) ts fuel injected you will need to adjust the throttle body position to archive the same effect.

if it has a distributor , you can turn the distributor as well to adjust the RPM.


rough idling is usually caused by Mounts, since you changed yours the next most likely issue is the RPM itself or idling speed / rpm. If its to low you ill have that issue.

other possible cause is the distributor points (if any).. bad plugs, bad plug wires.. but those cause other issues while driving as well.

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?

2000 Dodge Dakota vibration while driving


sound like the u-joints in the driveshaft. Lay under the truck and where the u-joints are try moving the driveshaft up and down. If it moves then the u-joints are bed. This will cause a tremendous vibration under a load and the faster it spins it will smooth out.

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.

1998 honda crv vibrates when starting out


Increased vibration from a vehicle indicates worn out engine supports. This vibration often disappears when revving the engine high, but is very noticeable at low revs.

You can have these inspected and possibly replaced to reduce the vibration cominf from your engine.

Hope this helps.

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.
