2001 Focus Vibrates Inexplicably!

The mechanics say that nothing is wrong with my focus but it is super annoying. It's been vibrating the dash board for over a year and I want to sell it so I need to fix this. DOes anything know if I can fix this ever?

    It's not the motor mounts, i had them check for that. And I got three opinions!

    The tires were new when the issue started and I've had them balanced since.

    Yes it does!

    Thanks! Sounds great... :(

    I had the same problem with my 2001 Ford Focus. The dealer couldn't fix it. I took it to a different dealer, they changed one of the motor mounts, and that fixed it.

Vibrations while driving are usually caused by missing/broken motor mounts, wheel bearings, unbalanced tires, or worn/bent 1/2 axles.
Improper tires (or winter tires) may also contribute.
Get a second opinion!
There are too many things on a 2001 that could be wrong.

    i suspect wheel bearings then.

    Does the noise/vibration go away at higher speeds?

    Your wheel bearings are then the culprit.

    One or both may be bad, but both should be replaced at the same time.

    not cheap BTW. Looking around $600.+

Vibration in dash of 2005 ford focus


Is it the dash vibrating or is because of wheel vibration? Generally the dash is pretty sturdy and unless its been in a major prang and the panel beaters have missed putting some of the screws back, it shouldn't vibrate. If the vibration starts at a certain speed and the steering wheel vibrates too, I would say its a wheel balance problem. Any Tyre place should be able to rebalance the wheels and sort this out for you. There is a possibility of a drive shaft vibration but im not sure how you check that out. If it is the dash, then good luck... There are many screws, bolts etc that hold the dash together, You will have to by trial and error , see which one is loose or missing. Before you do anything though, check that nothing is loose and rattling or vibrating in your glove box, ashtray or tissue holder. . There used to be this ad on TV showing a Guy who stripped his entire dashboard down to fix an annoying rattle. When he was looking at the hundred parts or so lying on the driveway, he found a couple of spare coins nuts and bolts rattling around in the ashtray which was the cause of the rattle!

My manuel trans. 2001 for focus has a rattle sound and vibrates a bit when starting. It seems to go away after it warms up a bit, but it is getting progressively worse and the vibration is lasting lon


I had a 1984 Mustang 4 cylinder that match the symptoms of your Ford Focus. I found that it was the core inside the catalytic converter had broke up and started to rattle. Not saying this is your problem but a possibility. Another possiblity, exhaust bumping the body of the car.
The wer wer wer sound you hear going over uneven ground is probably not related to the other mentioned. It sounds like the four wheel independent suspension adjusting to the terrain. Cool temperatures help promote this noise due to rubber bushing that your vehicle has in the suspension areas. Annoying, but considered normal. Hope this points you in the right direction and helps. Let me know what you found. Later, Todd

I have a 2005 ford focus 2.0L it has a mis at idle but runs fine going down the road.PS I changed the control air vavle


are you sure it is a miss or a vibration? Focuses are famous for a vibration at idle because of the upper motor mounts. some get so bad that the whole dash vibrates at stop lights.
