Hi Cyle, it sounds like there is either an imbalance in the tire pressures or your vehicle is out of alignment. I would assume that it is out of alignment, which can be fixed. The best thing to do would be to take it to a local mechanic or trusted tire store. Only they can fix the alignment and give you your smooth ride back. Good luck and take care. If you are uncertain of costs, call them ahead of time and ask for an estimate to check your tires and alignment. No one likes unpleasant surprises. Also check their consumer ratings through sources like the BBB (Better Business Bureau) or through one of the many available through a quick "Google" search. All the best. JD

My 1995 Ranger began a loud vibration coming from the drive train.


Yes indeed.

You want to get the vehicle drive shaft (torque tube) checked for any loose end play... paying particular attention to the "U-joint" area.

As bad as you are describing it it sounds like you are really close to dropping your drive shaft...

DO NOT work on this yourself if you are not TOTALLY familiar with good jacks... jack stands... wheel chocks and have a level work area available... also keep in mind that while your TRUCK may be in PARK... that is only as stable as your drive-shaft.

Don't get between your truck and a hard place until you get that DRIVE-SHAFT fixed...

Another hot tip... if you are going to the trouble of removing the drive shaft... replacing both "U-joints" would save money and time in the long run.

Be safe... work safe!

UN-Edited response via comment line:
Oh yes indeed.

It appears that the Ranger can come in many different configurations... but the rules of home trouble shooting are to go after the cheap and obvious probabilities FIRST, (loose lug nuts) then on to the rear-end... CV-joints (if you have them)... wheel bearings... finally back up into the transmission.

Seriously... look that drive-shaft over:

Have an assistant hold one wheel while you move your rear wheel... while you are watching the drive-line... the offending u-joint should reveal itself by showing some free-play.

These should be very tight...

Perhaps then when you look more closely you will see the HORRIBLE (chocolate) brown color of oxidized iron... ALWAYS an imminent sign of DANGER anywhere on your vehicle.

The u-joints can be pretty bad... and the vehicle still run... but once that drive-shaft drops your parts costs will escalate vigorously (assuming everybody survives (my drive-shaft didn't... but mine did NOT warn me (silent failure)).

Please do have a look at the URL I posted with my first reply.

Be safe!

My 94 yukon shifts hard from park to drive an reverse. Also terrible vibrations while driving


The vibration is coming from your drive shaft, sounds like your U joints are just about to play out.. take it to your local mechanic and let him inspect before it falls out the truck and can cause serious damage to your truck or some one else's car... Yes !! It can come out from under your truck or even flip it over

Vibration while accelerating


Hi:
You didn't say if your truck is a 4 wheel drive or not, but some areas that are worth looking at would be having your universal joints checked for wear, or CV joints if you have a 4 wheel drive truck.
Often they will cause a vibration, or make noise while turning.

Fh16 Volvo truck vibrating


There are many things that can induce a vibration in the truck, but it seems that most of the common vibration problems are centered in two areas, balance and wheel/tire defects.

I have a 2000 gmc sonoma and while driving down


Probably the CV joint. When you put it in 4x4 that puts extra torque on it so it wont vibrate so much.

Front End noise and vibration


Check the U-joints and axle baerings. But its most likely because the truck is in four wheel drive.
