Question about Ford Mustang

1 Answer

Dash codes Ford Mustang 2012 - Noted a shimmy upon accelerating as I started out this morning. Handling felt odd. Seemed smooth when I backed off but again when accelerating to 35mph. Yellow dash warning light flicked on then off before I could read it (right side under speedometer). No low tire air warning, visually okay, but did not have time to check pressures until tonight. Parked car, took another.

    Maybe threw wheel weights? Heavy feeling to car like it did not want accelerate, almost a flat tire feel but visually okay and no "low tire pressure" alert.

You must RUN the scanner/computer for easy diagnostic and fix it. Otherwise you must waste TIME+MONEY, the electronic vehicle Now is very complicated, You must take advantage from the resource in repair shop. see the diagram attached.

SOURCE: My car shimmies upon braking from high speeds

Sounds like warped rotors and worn pads or a worn front end or both. Most shops will check this for free I believe. If it were something like wheel bearings, or rear end you would likely notice this at lower speeds as well with out the brakes being applied. So the direct answer to your question is "Maybe, maybe not". Gee, that was helpful was'nt it?

SOURCE: lexus ls430 2004 tire pressure indicator

Veve713:
You probably didn't need new tires unless you had some miles on it. Remember that the spare tire also has a pressure monitor as well. It most likely is causing the low tire pressure light on the dash and only needs to be inflated back to what ever your other tires are set to. I had the same problem on my RX and took it back to the dealership where they told me since the spare is exposed to the same elements (it's under the back of the RX - you have to use the tire iron to let the spare down), it will inevidably lose air.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Check air suspension light

If it is just the bags leaking, replace them. www.strutmasters.com has a great deal on the complete rear system. The dealer charges $180.00 to put the bags on, just the bags, so hopefully that is all you will need.

Started my 2005 Kia Sorento this morning. It sounded and felt rough than died. Started it again gave it some gas and kept running rough. but RPM's fluxing up and down.


If no "check engine" or "wrench symbol" shows on the dash, the problem may be with bad gas.

If you do have a light displayed on the dash, Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys will scan the car for free. They can give you the defect number and sell parts to you if you can fix it yourself. If you need someone to fix it, at least when you call, you can price the repair by name.

Let the car idle and warm up before accelerating. See if it smooths out or makes noises. The noises would indicate problems that should not be driven.

I hope my solution is helpful.

90 ford Taurus 3.0 SOH. engine rattles or shimmies in third and overdrive gear automatic especially when going uphill. When i accelerate it stops or smoothes out. I checked the diagnostic codes and nothing...


Guess I'd have to agree with you. Sounds like the gears might be going bad. But, you might want to check your motor and transmission mounts to see if they are worn and causing the shimmy.
