Being the target of recurring problems on your car is especially bothersome, furthermore the financial side that these complications represent, one must also add the time lost with a non-functional Lexus GX and the time spent to identify and solve the breakdown. However, some problems are less significant than others, which is not to say that they do not worry us. In this article we are going to check out a issue that can affect all of us, perceiving vibrations at acceleration on Lexus GX. This issue can often be difficult to perceive but it must be looked after. We will therefore start our article with the sources of these vibrations on Lexus GX, then, with the solutions you have to reduce or stop these tremors.


Why does my Lexus GX produce vibrations when accelerating?

So let’s start our article with the sources of this form of issue on your car. You should already know that an engine, specifically if it is ancient or if it has been driven quite a bit, can naturally vibrate without being a issue behind it. Large diesel engines, specifically those with a lot of torque, can generate this form of feeling, both at idle and when accelerating.

I feel vibrations on my Lexus GX only when accelerating

Let’s take the most interesting case for us in this article. The simple fact that you suffer trembling on your Lexus GX during your acceleration phases, in this scenario you will have to examine the state of different parts because many of elements can be at the origin of these vibrations and regardless if you are unlucky a mix of several of them may also be possible, here is the list of components that can be involved.

  • Turbo: If the turbo of your Lexus GX is defective, it may generate vibrations that you will come to feel when you accelerate at the moment it is turned on.
  • The turbo pressure sensor: This sensor will control the pressure exerted in the turbo of your car, if it fails it may disrupt the behavior of your turbo and create vibrations that you may experience during acceleration of your Lexus GX.
  • .

  • If the turbo is punctured or ruined, the result will be similar, the power supply of your turbo will be disrupted and its behavior too. Make sure you visually check their state.

I’m getting vibrations on my Lexus GX at acceleration and deceleration

We will now look into the situation where you experience vibrations on your Lexus GX when you are accelerating but also when you are idling. If you only experience vibrations when you are idling on your Lexus GX, please consult our article focused on this issue to fix your problem. If, on the other hand, you notice that your Lexus GX vibrates when accelerating but also when it is stopped, here is the list of things to check:

  • EGR valve: Indeed this valve which manages the return of exhaust gases for pollution standards can become dirty and disturb the evacuation of exhaust gases which can generate Lexus GX vibrates when accelerating but also when stopped.
  • Injectors: Your injectors that control the fuel/air mixture flow may be dirty or damaged, which will generate the wrong amount of mixture and thus prevent your engine block from working correctly, it is even possible that one or more of your cylinders are not running properly.
  • Fuel Filter: Like the injectors, if the filter is blocked it will not let the fuel pass properly and therefore disturb the operation of your Lexus GX, up to the point of generating vibrations during acceleration.

Here are the most important triggers of a Lexus GX that vibrates at acceleration

What can I do to stop the vibration when I accelerate on my Lexus GX? What can I do?

To finish , in this last section, we will give you the possibilities available to you to overcome these tremors on your car when you accelerate. Here is the best attitude to adopt based on the part that is concerned:

  • Turbo: If your turbo starts all these vibrations when you accelerate your Lexus GX, it will be good for you to control all the components associated with it because changing a complete turbo is a big budget and typically the issue does not come directly from the turbo. So remember to check out your turbo pressure sensor, your flowmeter, the EGR valve and the hoses of your turbo. Otherwise take your Lexus GX to your garage.
  • EGR valve: The EGR valve has the benefit that it is generally easy to access and simple to take apart/clean. You can always look into it and clean it, for this see our article on cleaning the EGR valve of an Lexus GX.
  • Injectors: Injectors are very sensitive components and a few impurities may be enough to disturb their operation. Use a fuel additive to simply clean the injectors, if this is not enough you will have to go to a expert.
  • Fuel Filter: If it is the fuel filter, just change it. A fuel filter doesn’t clean itself, so if it is clogged you will only have to replace it with a new one.

Now you have all the information you need to locate the source of the vibrations at acceleration on your Lexus GX. If you don’t feel able to conduct certain procedures don’t hesitate to go to your mechanic.
