Have a 1986 Toyota PU, 22RE engine, 5speed manual trans, 120K miles. Just started to notice a "whole car"vibration when going up a small grade. Next time I drove it, the vibration started on level surface while under acceleration. Vibration stops when release the accelerator pedal. Thought of drive shaft or U joints, but wouldn't the vibration continue even without any load? Doesn't seem to be tire or shock related, but more like driveline. Would the transmission or clutch make a vibration under circumstances like that? Also noticed the exhaust system rattling noticeably, but can't tell if it is from the vibration or excesive exhaust pressure. It does rattle when moved by hand, so I would think the vibration.
