I hear and feel a thump when accelerating too fast from a stop. No thump if starting slowly. No problems accelerating once car is going. What could be causing this? Thump seems to be in the rear.


Transmission mounts are worn out and most likely your motor mounts too. Pretty straight forward job to replace but sometimes the bolts holding the motor mounts will be stuck requiring an impact wrench. Problem is that there is no room to get the impact near these bolts making a lift necessary.

What is the cause of continual thumping (appears to be coming from back of car) and violently shaking?


Many times, rear tires that are out of round or severely cupped or feathered, or that are out of balance can create this type of issue. My first recommendation would be to have them and the wheels on the rear of the car inspected. There may not seem like there is much wrong visibly if you look at just the tread of the tires, but a good tire tech can spin them up and give you some solutions, and the inspection itself is inexpensive. Hope this helps.

I have a 2004 F150 with 103000 miles. Recently I have experienced a "clunk" or "thump" sound and sensation coming from the rear end when accelerating from a dead stop or from a slow coast...like in a...


if it is the pinion bearing located near the drive shaft it could cause slack and thump the drive shaft. with the truck jacked up the driveshaft would be sloppy near the rear up and down.

When I take off from a dead stop the vehicle jerks 3 times consistantly. I've tried manually shifting,accelerating slowly, accelerating quickly and it still jerks 3 times nearly every time


i think this is impossible to tell you without being able to drive the car.things are more complicated then we would like. the fact that taking off slowly also causes this jerking seems to eliminate an enginge missfire which would be the first thing that would probably cause jerking. does it feel like the rear prakes are sticking on thi can be a problem with the parking brake cables rusted inside ther casing.four wheel drive problems could be a u jouint or drive shaft issue. have a mechanic at least drive it to get som feel for where the problem is.

Thumping coming from front end all speeds.


IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS

Rough idle, Car shakes, sputters and misfires upon acceleration


It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.
