Have your diagnostic codes read for possible malfunctions. If there are no codes, check all your vacuum lines for proper routing and connections. Sounds to me like some trouble codes may come up.
Ever used a vacuum gauge? Very helpful in determining the health of your engine, and locating problems. I'd also recommend a compression test of your cylinders. Then you'll have a good idea how strong your engine is, in case you are wondering if you are pouring money into a dubious venture.

What would cause truck to shake very hard or rough when starting?


I really need to know the mileage.....?..also the question isn't very clear ...Is the whole truck shaking roughly or is the engine shaking roughly or is it both the engine and truck shaking..?..Since I am not sure I will answer what I can....Ok......If the truck is shaking while sitting still at idle the engine/trans mounts could be worn and or loose mounting hardware...If the engine is running roughly at idle causing all to shake that bad it could be a number of things causing it as usual...Quite often a faulty plug wire/and or bad plug will make it have a misfire because it will be running on only 5 cylinders..If that's the case it could be more than one bad...A vacuum leak will cause it to perform in the same manner...however all cylinders will be firing..Normally a vacuum leak is easy to pinpoint..however it could be a faulty IAC valve..(IDLE AIR CONTROL)..The idle air control is designed to hold a high idle at start up then slowly bring idle down to proper Rpm.....A faulty TPS (THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR) will also cause a rough running problem..And let's not forget the O2 sensor..(OXYGEN SENSOR)..The O2 sensor controls air/fuel mixture...and yes an exhaust manifold gasket will make it run rough but not too bad...It has a rough running sound more so than causing it to horribly shake..It will shake but not to bad..
it is located at the exhaust side of engine..The exhaust manifold is mounted to the engine exhaust port..the exhaust pipe is mounted to the exhaust manifold and the muffler/cat converter is mounted to the exhaust pipe...You can check the plug wires quickly..With engine running carefully remove plug wires 1 at a time..If the sound of engine gets worse the wire you removed is good..after verifying it is good or bad plug wire back on then pull the next wire..and so on..If you pull a wire off and there is no change in engine operation that is the bad wire..If that is the case change all plugs and wires...One at a time..(It is a good idea to make sure all wires come off easily before starting engine..old wires will come apart easily..grasp wire tightly at boot and twist left to right while pulling..)as far as the other components I spoke as well as many others,the best,easy way is to have it hooked to a scanner and they can check/test all components for proper operation...Now..If it runs good but is shaking the engine/trans mounts are worn as I stated earlier..any loose engine component will cause an engine shake also but you should notice it at a glance...engine mount bolts/nuts being loose can be tightened without changing mounts if caught in time..Trans could be coming loose.also worn clutch will cause vibration...Send more info and I can guide you to remove and replace any faulty components you may find to save you money.........Brooks/Metalpoet.....

92 Thundebird 3.8...starts hard....really rough idle in any gear...sounds loud. Almost feels as if the engine is shaking


run fault codes and look for position sensors --MAP/MAF/VAF sensor problems and fuel /injector faults.

My 2000 Ford Ranger suddenly started idling really rough (like it wants to stall) and also shakes really bad at 40 mph. It also shakes the truck while driving, but not as bad as at idle or 40mph. No e


First question is - is the check engine light on ?
If so you need to start with the trouble codes in the computer.
Could be a faulty injector or coil among other things.
You should have a codes for which cylinder is not firing and other possible problems.

Needs fuse box location and car idles rough


Fuse box is behind the soft panel under your steering wheel. Is your check engine light flashing or on? Would be a misfire causing the rough idle if it is flashing. A possible bad coil. If its just a shake with no check engine light then it could just be a motor mount.

2006 Mustand GT. Rough Idling, shaking, trying to die


Thats the only problem with the newer cars. There are sensors for everything. Your best bet is to take it to a reputable mechanic and have it put on the diagonstic machine to find the problem($ 40-$80) Then you will know exactly what needs to be replaced without replacing things that arnt the problem
