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.

My steering wheel vibrates and shakes. I worry the steering will sieze up. What causes this problem and is it dangerous to drive while this is happening?


THE Steering wheel will only shake when either the wheels are out of balance {like weights come off or had a puncture etc} or wheel bearing worn badly,Tracking,out of alignment etc but can also be caused if only WHEN BRAKING it dose it that is the front Rotors have to be replaced and new Disc Pads also.

Getting vibration when car is put into drive. or stopped at a light idling in drive


You might have a cylinder missing, due to no spark, or a fuel issue. If it shakes, and you feel it at the steering wheel, I would get that looked into.

Steering wheel shakes above 40mph, what could be wrong 2006 f250 4x4 crew cab stock tires and wheels 100,000 miles also not much response in steering above 55mph


the wheel shaking sounds like a wheel balancing problem and the no steering response is either some loose ball joints or a bad gear it will need to go to the shop for both

Get yourself a compression tester and remove all spark plugs and proceed to check the compression for this motor the readings should all be above 110 psi, the car may have jumped a tooth on the timing belt and requires a new belt to be installed.
