I am having a problem with my 1998 Mercury Villager--whenever I press on the gas pedal there is a vibration. It is really bad/noticeable when around 30-40 mph. I am getting 5 or 6 different opinions on what could be. What do you suggest or where to take it to?

Car has about 155K

Thank you in advance
Paula

Without hearing/feeling it it is hard to say. It may be a misfire. IS the check engine light on?

You need to start a new question specific to your vehicle. Unlike other sites where anyone can chime in, here this becomes a private conversation between you and one or two experts who will stick with you to the solution. As such, when you piggyback on this post that is over ten years old, none of the other experts are going to see your addition or have a chance to reply. That won't get you the help you need. The only reason I saw your addition was I popped in to see if I could learn something.

You also didn't include a single piece of useful information that could be used to start the diagnosis, so few of us are going to bother with a reply. We don't know what "stop" means in your post. Does that mean pressing the brake pedal but the vehicle is still moving and slowing down? Does it mean you're stopped at a stop sign with the engine idling? Does it mean you turned the ignition switch off?

What does "starts to shake" mean? Do you feel it in the steering wheel? The brake pedal? The whole vehicle? Does engine speed affect the shaking?

Also be aware you need to list the engine size, transmission type, and mileage. We need to know the engine size when looking up diagrams and parts lists. We look at the mileage when making judgements as to best suspects and things to check first.
