    I took off the front wheels and lubed the only zerk (upper ball joint) and sprayed all suspension parts with silicon as you suggested and it seems to have fixed it. Thanks for the cure!

Just start at the front and lube every thing that has a lube fitting. Make sure that you lube all the drive lines. this should stop your creaks.

Ford ka creaking on drivers side when driving over bumps in road or turning

Is this a suspension creak, or a door creak?

Components which you haven't had changed are:

bottom suspension arms
Anti roll bar links

Also lubricate your door lock mechanism, hinges and window rubbers as these can cause creaks from time to time.

Ok, here you go,a 1988 F150 that i bought this summer ran great all summer and fall but when cold weather hit(35 or colder) the truck just turns over but won't start.When the weather warmes up it'll start...

have you scanned the computer for any codes? Even though it may not have a check engine light, it still may have codes that might put you on the right course. Fords of that era have issues with ignition modules (by the distributor). It is OBD1, so the codes are manufacturer specific, and the connector is either on the driver side or passenger side shock tower.

Oil pressure is high and rpms are low . happened before but check engine light was on then and isnt now. The dealership said that all they did was plug back in a faulty sencer and it ran fine after that..

with it being colder weather unless you live in Equador where it's hot all year round, the oil thickens thus you have good oil pressure, nothing wrong with good oil pressure only if you have no oil pressure. a car with 5w30 in 20*f weather that only gets 35psi in the summer now gets 55 psi in the cold..... now if you have a wrong oil filter that would put it in bypass mode thus giving you 60psi or higher ( i had this happen to me in a used truck ) if the engine isn't knocking i wouldn't worry about it much, a car in cold weather performs better than a car in the hot.

Front end shimmys/shakes, happens especially after hitting a bump. Feels loose or something, usually around 40 - 50 mph.

there is a steering dampner for those jeeps , since u not posting model or year not sure what to say, may even have worn tie rod ends/ball joints/bushings, u need to have it checked out

Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Problems Wont shift

Tried changing the fluid? Often gummy deposits get gummier when cold and take a while to free up with temp increase. Of course, if you are good at it, you can rebuild it but I'd try that first. Generally I use lucas conditioner with B&M or Amsoil synthetic fluid in mine...seems to do the job.

Weird Missfiring

This is an electrical problem. There is a harness that runs in back of the cylinder head. I've seen this harness get worn and rub against the head when hitting bumps. Check the harness also while the jeep is running try moving harnesses under the hood you might get lucky and find if any wire could be storting out to ground.
