Default Gas pedal vibration gone!!!

For all you inclined, I figured out what the hell the vibration is and I'm sure it will take care of all the guys and gals with the same issue. Today turned out to be a beauty of a day, nice and warm and sunny so I started rootin' around inside under the dash tugging and pushing on things and it turns out not to be the gas pedal at all!! It always struck me as something with weight to it and sprung, so I start jerkin on the brake pedal back and forth and side to side and discovered enough movement side to side on the pivot point up by the firewall. So when I look way up by the the arm I see the fairly large return spring which explains the "sprung" feeling when it starts.....now I'm gettin excited, I hop in and go for a rip down the fishing hole road which has a fair amount of washboard. I start into the washboard and let it do its thing, same old rattle that you feel through the gas pedal until I hook my left foot behind the brake pedal and gently pull back towards me and......There it is, Gone, I repeated this several times on the washboard and absolutely no noise, I couldn't feel the vibration in the gas pedal whatsoever. Givr' a Try!! and then you can tell me I'm full of shit....lolol

So did you find a fix or just identify the culprit?

I guess I could have mentioned that, I'm going to have to figure how to get rid of the play in the pedal, would that be anything that warranty would cover? Maybe a washer to take up the slack or something. I don't know about you guys and gals but that particular ailment drove up the F####n wall, what a difference it makes when its gone.

So there's some slack there where the spring let's the pedal wobble around? Maybe a stiffer spring is the answer.

There may be an adjustment on the pushrod to the master cyclinder. Maybe that will take out the slop in the pedal. Mine doesn't vibrate enough to piss me off yet. Maybe I'll take a peek at it sometime soon. You may be on to something.

My gas pedal used to vibrate like crazy, even on smooth roads. I recently put aftermarket wheels and tires on my truck, and now the vibration is completely gone!

...Just FYI.

Hello all.
I am also having the vibration through the gas pedal. After reading many forums, I am convinced there are three types of vibrations different folks are getting through the gas pedal. First, some people feel the road vibration through the tires. Second, some people are getting a vibration/shimmy when at low RPM and the truck is in MDS mode and trying to switch from four cylinder to eight cylinder. I get both of those and those don’t bother me at all, I believe they are quite normal. The third vibration is when the engine hits about 2000 RPM’s it causes a vibration through the pedal and steering wheel that feels like an electric shaver. That third vibration is making me absolutely hate my new 2012 Ram 1500 Big Horn when I drive it on the freeway, because it cruises right at 2000 RPM, the range where the vibration occurs. I have had the truck to the dealer a number of times and they say they can’t feel it. Funny, because the Ken Towery mechanics and my friends can all feel it and say it isn’t “normal”. I have also owned a Jeep Truck, a Ford F-150, and Chevrolet Blazer, and numerous other cars and have never had this happen. I have read many Dodge forums and have not yet seen anybody that has a real solution or received a real solution from Dodge/Ram. If you are having the third issue, vibration through the gas pedal at certain RPM’s, give me an e-mail at gcgrimes@insightbb.com. If I can get enough people having the same problem, maybe we can force the dealer/manufacturer to deal with it. Thanks
