Vibration in car when accelerating

Alan T

Recommended Posts

So the journey begins! Having only owned my 58 plate Jag xtype diesel estate auto for a couple of weeks and beginning to get the feel of it and understand it I have found that when accelerating the car vibrates. As I level off as it were then the vibration reduces. This appears to be not an uncommon occurrence. Am I right in thinking this is probably the drive shafts and if so better to replace both and have done with it? Also any idea who offers a decent price on them? Any help greatly appreciated. Loving the car btw. I did by an awesome piece of kit from Halfords for streaming music/audio books. Scosche FMT at £48. Not the cheapest but it also has an additional lead plug in so the I can continue to charge my phone as well. Aux lead also provided for those that have one. Not a huge techi but it was easy to link up. Guessing some will have found cheaper ones. Also membership and Halfords discount card only came today so I missed that one! 🤦‍♂️

Hi Alan

I have moved your (this) post into the X-Type section as more members with this model of Jaguar are likely to read the post and hopefully offer some assistance.

At first thought, it does sound like driveshaft(s) but I would definitely get it checked in a garage first to eliminate the shafts or even wheel imbalance....hopefully a much cheaper result if its just that! This could occur at around 60mph and is easily rectified by rebalancing the front wheels.

Let us know how you get on with it all.
Cheers,   Trevor

Thank you David. I've also noticed (albeit only slight at the moment) a 'knock' up the steering wheel column. It is only occasional so the the cv joint maybe a good starting point. Or is that something different? I'll post a reply when I've got to the bottom of it.
