So hard to guess at a sound with out being able to drive the vehicle first hand and experience the problem. A vibration like you describe is likely to be the exhaust rubbing due to a filed exhaust rubber hanger or engine mount that is allowing the engine to flex "too much". Vibrations on acceleration are often caused by damaged or cracked exhaust heat shields.

The vibrating is heavy and comes randomly while I'm driving any suggestions on what could be causing my problem?
A knocking noise from the upper engine area may indicate a loose intake runner. Our technicians tell us if this is the case, replacement of the upper intake clamshell will be necessary.
