Question about Ford F-150
Well i am still having problems with vibration with my ford truck F150 4.9L and i have had new U joints press in to the drive shaft and have the drive shaft checked out it's self and there are nothing wrong with the drive shaft and i had the rear end checked out and there are nothing wrong with it either. But where the drive shaft goes into the Transmission i was told that it has some play in it so would that cause the vibration? Cause i really need some help please cause if i can not find the problem i am going to sale my truck and buy a Chevy truck cause i am starting to get sick of fords and a Chevy is alot more better than a ford.

Very common problem. This piece is covered by Nissan for 60000 miles or 5 years. And its most likely one of the front u-joints that failed.

your probably feeling a rough idle of the engine. need a tune up?
in park the engine is not loaded down, just idling at a low rpm=rough
in drive with brake on you have put some load on motor also at low rpm=rough
in drive on the road engine is at higher rpm, = smoother
generally 4 cylinder motors idle a bit rough, especially if one spark plug is not firing right or fouled or one bad spark plug wire. tune up may fix it. if it is not stumbling real bad or stalling then you can live with it.

check the U-joints by grabbing the drive shaft and try to make it move from side to side or top to bottom.It is much easier to do this if the vehicle is in the air and no weight on the axle.If it does move replace that U-joint,but if you are going to replace one then I would do both since you will have the drive shaft out any way.Also check to see if the shaft weight is still there,but I doubt it has came off its pretty rare.

Could be a u-joint. Check it by moving the drive shaft side to side, if no play in the u-joints then they are not bad. If you need to replace the drive shaft I would suggest you find one at a salvage yard versus paying that much for a new one.
