Hey guys, Just wondering- Does your Accelerator pedal vibrate when you are driving? Mine has done it since i got the truck back in jan! And i think it is becoming worse! Today i cracked the hood to see what was up and it looks like my harmonic balancer seems to be wobbling a little bit? Do the harmonic balancers tend to fail on these vehicles? Or has anyone had any experience with what i am dealing with? It shakes while driving, if i put it in neutral and rev the engine the pedal still shakes.

Any info would be great! Thanks guys
Evan

Don't know if this will help your situation... but I have the 70mph vibe, and through the go pedal is were I fist noticed it... also felt it in the steering wheel. Does it shake in park while you rev the motor ???

Where can you see the harmonic balancer when looking under the hood?

The balancer is on the crank. Bottom pulley on the belt also.

Found my problem it is a broken power steering pump bracket that is attached to the back of the vacuum pump. Any one else with this problem?
