Hello there, many faults will cause your 2004 Ford Taurus to have a vibration in the gas pedal. It is good that you referenced where the vibration is coming from, as this varies what will cause it. The most likely faults are the CV axle, throttle linkage, engine mounts, wheel bearings, or a misfire condition.
