Question about 2001 Ford Explorer
My 01 explorer (105K) has a mild but noticable jolt at most speeds, sometimes 20 minutes apart other times more frequent. It feels like a rough shift would feel, but the I don't think it is the transmission because it is cruising along in overdrive (or 3rd) and is not shifting at the time. RPM's don't change at all. I think it may be front hub related? Like if the auto 4x4 is trying to engage or disengage without reason? No other bad noises, and no problems in 4x4 or low range.
Right front hub assembly is only 4K miles old, left side is original.
You might just need a good tune up. A secondary wire (spark plug wire) breaking down will cause that problem. When was your last tune up?
