1965 ford ranchero

6 years ago I parked my 65 ranchero (289 C4 auto ) with a vibration in it. It vibrated standing still, in park or neutral. This happens when you increase the rpms to about 1200. Over the 6 year time period the torque converter drained its fluid on the floor. I started it last week, and had no vibration. After I replenished the trans fluid to a normal level the vibration came back. I do not know how a torque converter is made, but It seems logical to me I have a bad converter. Can some one help me with this issue ?

The torque converter is bad and the flex plate may be cracked around the crank flange. I would replace both.

Did you recently replace the axles on the vehicle? This problem commonly occurs in Subarus when you replace the axles with non-OEM parts. The only fix seems to be to swap out the axles for OEM parts. Search the forums at subaruoutback.org for many stories of the same condition and some theories on why non-OEM axles cause the problem.

SOURCE: I have a 1966 Ford Falcon with a C4 transmission.

I would begin by replacing the filter if its not new, 2 possibility of issue, faulty shifting module or defective transmission rebuilt. just because it has been rebuilt does not mean the individual work on it did a good job. the less cost effective way is to locate used modulator from ebay or junk yard, if that does not rectified the issue than more likely it will be the tranny. the bad part is that I dont know of a company offer a bench test for the tranny modulator.

Unknown Vibration


motor mounts can be changed without pulling the motor the load percent change that the other guy posted is normal and a vaccum leak would cause the engine idle to wander when in neutral. if you need info on how to change mounts let me know

08 accord ex-v6 auto. engine vibration @ idle in park or (gear at stop) when engine is cold to warm until it fully warms. dealer states it's normal. dealer showed me another accord with similar shake.???...


I've got an 08 4cyl and it doesn't really have the vibration unless its really cold. Usually if I give it about 30 seconds...when the rpms start to come down, its barely noticeable.

Brakes seem to drag after having parking brake assembly replaced ( was a recall)


yes it could have a lot to do with it. the assembley may have been mis installed and is too short a cable and is always on. Have them re adjusted to loosen up the tension in the line to the emergency brake.
