Have the front control arm bushings replaced and check the ball joints for excessive wear as well as the tie rod ends, the problem lies there. Also check for a cracked frame.

check your ground cables for corrosion or looseness- it starts slow bwcause everything is still cold, after a few seconds of cranking the voltage heats the cables up and makes a better connection... also check your positive cables.

SOURCE: my 1998 ford explorer engine is shaking why is

How old are your spark plugs? Raise the hood with the motor running in a pitch black location, no light any where, and see if the plug wires are jumping spark outside of the wires. If they are, replace them too.

SOURCE: 98 Ford Explorer won't move in reverse

Sometimes it may just be the fluid level, if you have drive , drive it around the block a few times, then park it on level ground and hold the brake and go through all the gears slowley, two times. put it in park, open the hood and check the fluid level, the dip stick in the back by the fire wall, take it out and clean it, read the stick. SOME need to be checked in Nutral, if this is the case do so but be carefull that the truck has stopped moving when put in nutral!!! if it is low only put in the right fluid, and a little at a time, while it is still running DO NOT OVER FILL !!!!!!!! Also sometimes it is a SENSOR problem, and in most cases not to hard or costly to replace.

Shackes and cuts out


What do you mean by it "shakes & cuts out while driving"? The vehicle literally shakes, or just the engine shakes at an idle or while driving? and it cuts out when, at idle, driving? Let me know when specifically it has this problem, it might help me on giving you a better suggestion(s) on what problem(s) might be causing this.

Something out-of-balance somewhere. Start with the tires, check the wheels, then have the driveshaft balance checked. Do any off-roading?
