Shaking while accelerating

Hi everyone,

New to the forum here.

I have a question regarding my shaking car (Toyota Avensis Diesel 2.0 1999) while accelerating.

The shaking occurs when I accelerate, especially within the range of 45-75 miles per hour (70-120km/h). It's at it's worst around 60 mph. Whenever I release the gas pedal it stops. It also stops whenever I go faster than 75 mph. When I drive at a constant speed between 45-75 mph, the car stills shakes, but a bit less than when I accelerate. It doesn't seem like there is any specific location from where the shaking originates. It's all over, but there's no shaking of the steering wheel itself. The tyres are ok. After some suggestions I recently put some injection cleaner into a full tank, but with no results.

Does anyone have a clue about the cause of this?

Thanks in advance!!!!!

    Welcome - we didn't get that model here in the US (and we still don't have many diesel models, and few, if any Toyota diesels here).

    Maybe it's time to look beyond the engine to the driveshaft, check for balance problems etc.
