Cylinder misfire on #5 on 2001 ford windstar


I've been having this same problem, it's been bugging me for months, then it came to me out of the blue this afternoon. The DPFE sensor which replaces the MAP sensor on new vehicles. If it goes bad it can cause misfires and a lean situation. So I unplugged it this afternoon, no misfire sense

1993 f-150 4x4 very hard to turn to the right. I've replace the steering box, pump, and front axle u-joints. When it's off the ground it steers easy. Back on the ground, Hard??


Either ball joints or alignment come to mind.
Ball joints will often bind and grab in one direction but not necessarily in the other, when they are really bad.
You don't notice it jacked up because the control arms pivot down to put you on a different location on the ball joint.
You should be able to see which side and whether upper or lower, by seeing the pressure causing flex and jerks.
Although it is usually either one with a rubber rip or the lowers.
But alignment can do it also, especially of jacked up.
The camber or caster can be too great on one side, where turning the steering has to lift the whole truck up on one side more than the other, or it can strongly pull to one side.

Jerking from take off


It could be that you have some free play from wear and tear in the universal joints that are located at both ends of your main driveshaft. My 2001 ranger 4x4 does the same thing; it also starts to shake pretty hard if I go more than 65 mph. My U-joints definitely need replacing. I would have the universal joints on the main driveshaft checked or replaced. It could also be an excessively worn pressure plate ( automatic clutch). If it's idling higher than around 600 rpm after the engine is warmed up I would check the idle air control valve or for a vacume leak elsewhere near the intake manifold. I hope this helps : )

How to re-install lower ball joints on 2001 ford f150 4x4.


A "ball joint seperator" and a "ball joint press" is what you will need to do this. A castle nut will be holding the ball joint in place, remove the pin, drop the joint, press in the new one.

Truck has a noise vibration when hubs are locked in. Noise is stronger in 4 wheel drive. 95 F150 supecab


Could be a few different things. I really doubt the carrier is bad on the truck. I would be looking at the axle half shaft u joints on both sides, and or the cv and u joints on the drive shaft to the front differential. If one of these u joints are bad it can make all kinds of noise and cause vibrations. Especially when under a load. Good luck.

Shaking badly


My '97 F-150 started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. Took it to the Ford garage yesterday. They found a bad spark plug wire and because of that, a bad plug also. Have you had it tuned-up lately?
