Question about Ford F-150

Open Question

I am have problems with vibration with my 93 ford F150?

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.

SOURCE: 93 cavalier vibrating

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 for play in the steering rack and tie rod ends.

SOURCE: 2004 ford f150 4x2 4.6 drive shaft has vibration

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.

SOURCE: S10 Extreme has drive shaft vibration and shop

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.

I am still having vibration problems with my 93 ford F150 4.9L

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.

I have a Ford 1995 Ford F150 4x4 with 5.8L and E4OD trans.My problem is a vibration occurs at approx. 60,80 and 100 kph.I have changed all wheel shaft,transfer box,rear end overhauled--so think...

I also have a 95 Ford F150 4x4 5.0l, extended cab two piece drive shaft. E40d trany in fourth gear accelerating or not it will vibrate badly but only slightly in any other gears. The first thing I did was rebuild the trany, no luck same exact conditions. All clutchs and bands replaced, synthic fluid, new torque converter, and a shift kit from TCI. Still does the same thing.

Vibrations in stering

Did you have a vibration prior to the tires and brakes?

Have the tire shop rebalance your tires and or check to see if any of the wheel weights have fallen off. Did the shop take the brake rotors off and turn them?

check the #3 spark plug. I have one of these "gems", and my trouble started out similarly. I had the vibration and then an exhaust leak. What it was, is the #3 plug blew out of the motor. The threads, in the head, are too weak to hold the plug in. It is a common (and can be expensive) problem to fix.
