    2002 F150 - thought I had a flat tire the shake was so bad, stopped to look and saw nothing so I took off again and no shake. This wasn't a broken belt or wheel balance problem.

2000 Ford Mustang V6 shaking uncontrollably. Most likely culprits, transmission or power steering, but could be something else. Please help!


more detail, please. Does it shake at idle in neutral? If yes, not likely transmission.
Does it shake while sitting still? Only while driving? If while moving, check wheels/tires/brakes.

Fornt end shakes when going down the road, gets worse whrn the brakes are applied


If the steering wheel shakes while applying the brakes, you have warped brake rotors, and they need to be replaced. A shake all of the time may also be another issue, as in tires out of round, out of balance, or bad tie rod ends.

It sounds like somethhing is grinding when going down the road, and gets worse when i make a curve in the road. Also when i come to a stop my anti lock brakes kick in on a dry road. What could this be?


Sounds like you have a wheel bearing starting to go bad. If it gets worse when you turn left than the right side is usually bad. If it gets worse when turning right than the left is usually bad. Sometimes you can jack up the vehicle and spin the wheels by hand and hear/feel the bad wheel bearing. Also sometimes you can grab the tire at the 12 and 6 position and push/pull and feel the tire move. Another indication that the wheel bearing is bad.

Wheel shaking?


There are many things that can cause front end vibrations, I will give you a list and hopefully the information provided will allow you to narrow it down. Usaully front end shake is caused by a tire that either has a shifted belt in the tire or the tire weights could have falled off and the tire and wheel must be rebalanced, another reason for shake is if the shake occurs when applying the brakes it is a warped rotor and the brakes must be replace in the front end along with new rotor installed, the last thing that it could be is a loose or worn out front end part perhaps a tierod end. If i was you I would try rotating the tires from the front to the back and see if the shaking goes away if it does it is most likely a bad tire (shifted belt) or the tire needs to be rebalanced at a auto garage. after checking that first then jack up the front and grab the wheel and move it back and forth up the down to check for play or loosness, as I said if the shaking occurs while applying the brakes replace the brakes and rotors.

When i brake at 50mph the vihicle shakes real bad It doesnt feel like warped rotors it feels like the abs is not working properly. Is there a quick fix like pulling the fuse for the anti lock system so i...


If your fuse box has a fuse for the ABS system, then you can pull it out and retest your vehicle. If shaking continues, have your tires and wheels properly balanced. Check tires for humps or deformations, better yet, ask if possible to borrow a couple of tires and rims (that fit your car) from someone that you know has no shaking problems and retest your vehicle. Warped rotors are the last thing to look at when problems like this arise, but are not uncommon.
