Jumped in the car this morning and I noticed it was vibrating as I was accelarating, take my foot off the pedal and vibration stops or as I get up to 60km it seems to almost go away, I noticed the other day when driving back from Bawley Point it was vibrating a little bit at 100.
I know it's not the engine as it sounds the same as normal.

I haven't checked the tires or tale shaft yet as its dark now, anyone got an idea?

NRMA came out this morning, the bloke thought it maybe fly wheel/harmonic balencer, the mrs old man reckons it could be an engine mount, THE CAR SCRAPPED WHEN ENTERING THE DRIVE WHICH MAKES ME THINK IT COULD BE THE REAR ENGINE MOUNT.

Harmonic balancers are notorious for failing on 5.0's. The outer ring seperates and will end up falling apart.

At this stage I put it down to either the harmonic balencer or the engine mounts failing.
I haven't pulled the radiator out yet or checked the rear engine mount, I knew with the front ones the rubber had perished.
