Question about Ford F-150
I am still having vibration problems with my 93 ford F-150 short bed truck cause i had the rear end checked out and it is good and i had new U joints press in to the drive shaft and the drive shaft is good as well. But it is still has vibration problems cause it was doing it around 40 or 45 mph but now it is doing it at any speed now and it is starting to drive me crazy and i would like to know what else could cause it to have the vibration and could it be in the motor or what could it be cause i could sure use some help please!!!

This sounds crazy but I had it happen once. Have your wheels balanced. On my truck, I had a slight bend in one of my wheels. I never felt it at low speed but as I approached highway speeds, it could feel a vibration. I had everything checked out and it ended up being a slightly bent wheel.
I hope that helps.

It is possible your O/drive plates inside your transmission are getting worn/burnt. The speed you are discribing is the same speed that the torque convertor "locks up" that puts extra load on the gear that is applied & if it is weak it will slip/viabrate.
I'm not sure it will work but you could go to your local parts store & pick up a can of trasmission seal conditioner & follow the instructions on the can. some times this helps, also make sure you fluid is quite fresh, you might want to have youtransmission fluid "flushed" as this will replace nearly all the fluid in the transmission, this quite often helps any transmission isues with dodges, they are quite particular about the fluid being in good shape. I was a transmission tech for dodge for 4 years & saw a lot of these issues. unfortunatly if it has gone for a while you may need to overhaul your trans.
I also noticed the picture didn't go through for the EGR valve so I am resending it on this comment.
Good luck I hope this helps.
Please keep me posted.

Sounds like the passing gear cable is out of adjustment. Get a shop manual and see what the specs are on how to adjust it properly. It is a pretty simple fix.

Hello there, Most of the upper ball joints on the Fords have to be pressed out and a new one pressed in. You can save your self alot of frustration if you take off the upper control arm and take it and have someone press it such as a local automotive machine shop. you also might be suprised that buying an upper control arm assembly from your ford dealer it comes with a new ball joint installed and in most cases comes with new bushings as well, and it really isn't that much more money. and it will save you alot of aggrevation.
Good Luck and I hope this helps.

there should 4 little bolts remove theme,from both end theres no seals on either side just be careful when u pull from tranny side youll loose some fluid (all over u if your not careful)the u joints r pretty simple if u have a vise they have little round clips you pop out then put a socket on the end of the joint hammer away or vise it will pop out one side at a time its hard for me to expain but if u know basic mech it will come to you while your down there loosen the little bolts the shaft will slide right outta the tranny,if u got vibration it might b the weight fell off or off balance you may need to get it machined and rebalanced
