Question about Ford Explorer
Posted by Anonymous on
Have to decide if the vibration is engine or transmission sourced
Is the vibration there in neutral at the rpm of 55 mph or better Taking that at 55mph you would be in over drive and the rpm would be around the 2600 mark
hold the rpm steady and see if the vibration is apparent
raise the rpm to see if it comes in
if it does , it is an engine problem and probably a balance shaft timing out
If not then it is a transmission problem and as it would be in over drive and the indications would be a failing bearing in the rear of the transmission of transfer case

Yes it is very possible.Lift the hood ,have someone stand to one side and watch the engine.Put left foot on the brake,and press the accelerater with the car in DRIVEand bring up the revs slowly.Then repeat with the car in REVERSE.The engine should not move more than an inch or so in either direction.I have seen bad engine mounts let an engine move back and forth six inches by doing the above .BE CAREFULL!!! make sure your foot is down on the brake 100%. Good Luck

SOURCE: rotated & balanced tires. new
You will need to check things logically. Run the truck in the air and note where the vibration is at. Take the wheels OFF and put a few lug nuts to hold the rotors on, take the truck to 45mph or whatever the vibration is the worst. is it still there? if its gone, check wheels/ tires. if its still there, check rotors, axles. A drive shaft will make a rapid vibration at low speeds since it turns 3 to 4 times faster than the wheels. does it vibrate on or off the gas? Can you power through the vibration like go 60 and then coast back through? You have replaced a lot of parts that would not cause vibrations. Are you just changing parts willy nilly or is someone actually checking and verifying that these parts really bad?
