I will never buy another ford again and if I didn't still owe on this piece of junk I would get rid of it right now. They can be cracked or something like that. A lot of them get an intake manifold vacuum leaks. No hesitation whatsoever in the engine any more. This vehicle has been nickel and diming me. I agree it should be much better.
Smooths out when you accelerate. It took almost two weeks for them to discover the harmonic balancer was worn. Installed 4 new O2 sensors this week, and it's running like a champ again. I had my mechanic take a look at the problem and he told me that it was the torque sensor. I was going to bring it to another mechanic for a second opinion. .
When it is damp or raining it chirps alot more. I cleared the computer by pulling the battery cable over night this was about a month ago and I now have no codes that come up. It can be a broken or at times even a worn out motor mount which can cause the engine to move around way too much and cause the sensation of vibration. Also they have to be indexed into the wheel bearing housing. Now, if you exchange the chair seat with the seat of a car, the result will not be all the good for your nerves.
The main thing on those things when they do this, you should try the obvious. Nothing beats the experience of sitting in a vibrating chair, it is soothing and deeply relaxing for your nerves. However, I did get some money back for the misdiagnosis from the Ford dealer. Usually the parts will not go back together if they are not indexed correctly, so I would look into the tranaxle for broken pieces, low fluid, etc. But it's shaking the truck like it has a dead miss on one cylinder, but when you listen through the tail pipe, it is smooth. They suggested to replace the seals, plugs and wires.
It's just a piece of thin metal that is not absolutely necessary to the operation of your vehicle. I have changed the plugs and wires initially had a code of 6 misfire, but I now have no codes after clearing the computer. The converter has a heat shield over it. I called the local Ford Dealership and they ran a diagnostic test on it and said it showed the Steering Torque Sensor is bad. I also feel that with the bail out of the car manufactures they should be fixing these defective problems, but is seems bad behavior or in this case bad manufacturing designs keep getting rewarded. Had the same problems with rough idle, idle rpms dropping, and even stalling as the problem got worse.
After 3000 miles, I ran a second bottle of the gumout through the tank. That's caused by either mud don't forget to check the inside of the wheels! Thanks for all the responses. Not missing when you listen at the rear of the truck, but the engine is shaking noticeably. After that my ex started and idled better. At the time of the recall I was not having any issues with the steering so guessed the module update was to take care of the defective torque sensor. It was a little dirty, but not too bad.
Mine was giving the P0506 low idle code. It didn't do it all the time. Both a friend and I, each driving 1995 Ford Explorers with the 4. I'm going to clean it anyway as has been recommended because I know it's never been cleaned. Wheels Get Out Of Balance.
Actually, the Harmonic Balancer cost the least to replace. This happens to a lot of car owners who have been driving their car for a really long time. My car only has around 65,500 miles. This can be fixed with a minor or a major repair all depending upon the condition of the car. Then when you accelerate, it rattles like a piece of light metal hitting heavier metal. I had already put new plugs and a throttle position sensor on before cleaning and new fuel filter. You need to see what is exactly wrong with the vehicle and get it repaired immediately to avoid any mishappening in the future: 1.
I wish I could explain the problem better, as it is running extremely smooth when you listen at the tail pipe. The engine shakes at idle and I can't figure it out. I would think that if it was the balancer, it would get worse with acceleration, correct? So now I have no check engine light but a vibration like you. The noise drives me nuts!!! I'd changed the plugs and wires thinking t it would be the least expensive way to solve the rough idle. I have a '91 ford explorer and I had that problem. Sounds like it should still be at that shop, something is not installed correctly, the cv shafts are splined on each end and must be fully indexed into the transmission axle.
