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.

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.

My 2003 buick lesabre will start to vibrate when you get up t 45 mph and will get worse if you give it gas but will stop vibrating if you let off the gas


Sounds like a motor mount or trans mount, maybe a axle shaft worn out.To check the motor mount and trans mount start the car raise the hood have someone stand by the side of the front end put the car in drive with your foot on the brake use the other foot and press the gas pedal a little bit and see if the motor raises up on one side or the other.

i would suspect somewhere in your front end you have a compliance bushing with excessive movement. these cars front ends depend heavily on these style bushings, and as they wear you can start to see tire wear patterns, looseness in steering, and high speed vibration. make sure you have the front end inspected by a shop that is familier with these types of cars. good luck!

Vibration/Rattling on right side during high speeds


I had a similar problem. The dealer change automatic transmission and differential, but the noise continu. After research on internet i think the problem is the front galiper who create a vibration on the disc wheel and the vibration frequence follow the front axle until interior car. Just press slowly the brake pedal and if the noise stop , that's it the cause i think. I dont change my galiper, but i have a new transmission . :)))

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.

Tire Vibration


I have the same issue - but notice its worse when you accelerate hard in 5th. I have changed all the ball joints, bearings and track rod ends but its still there. From trawling the various forums I'm starting to think I need to change the suspension arms and top strut bushes. 100K
