    im posting this here cause i saw a similar question with no responses

    thanks in advance for anyone trying to help. Maybe a month or so back id hear a vibration coming from under the hood at about 3-4 rpms in third or fourth gear. Today i heard it in all the gears at 3000 rpm. You should know i only hear this upon rapid acceleration(when im flooring it.) anyways i scheduled an appointment at the dealership for this on the 6th cause theyre "slammed" with work. I dont even have 8000 miles on the car yet and its remained stock this whole time. Sorry i didnt mention that it sounds like the vibration comes from the area right where the turbo is located.... Im about 95% sure its around there. And to make matters worse, i hear/feel another rattle coming from the exhaust when i take off in first now. everything everywhere feels sturdy and tight. thx again

    Maybe its the exhaust hangers. Does the car feel different when increasing speed?

    What year/model car is it?

    I'm not to familiar with the newer models, but I know the turbo heat shield has been the source of many concerning vibrations/rattles.
