Well, I am just really glad I was able to help someone, but if you are ever in Alabama!

Time to bump this post.

I've noticed vibration in my gas pedal at times as well. However after test driving a 2016 Titanium with DCT, it also had some degree of vibration there. However mine felt worse so I changed the PMM, and it got better a little temporarily. My car is a 2016 SE, DCT.

It's strange. Gas pedal will be smooth as butter a lot, then I'll feel more vibration.

Anyone have thoughts?

Jason

If the mount was not a Ford one then a common complaint. Aftermarket mounts simply do not work well or long there, the Chinese companies making them simply refuse to do the due diligence it takes to make them correctly.

It's a Motorcraft mount. I don't think what I'm feeling has anything to do with the mount. I have no clue what it could be. Could be just normal but seems just a wee bit excessive.

I replaced my pmm yesterday at 35k miles. Old mount was original, and I was feeling some vibes at idle and in the gas pedal. Worse was between 15-2100 rpm, it makes a buzz vibration in the dash at 2k rpm. The mount wasn't failed but the new mount smoothed it out some. I still have a vibration almost like an exhaust leak. I replaced RMM as well at the same time. Can the transmission mount cause the lound vibration noises as well?
