2007 Ford Freestar vibration and hesitation with a ****

My problem is this. I have been getting vibration and hesitation like it looses power momentarily with a ****/bump/clunk ate the end of the hesitation while driving. The vibration and hesitation do not always happen simultaneously. This happens at speeds above 45 MPH. The vehicle seem to shift normally and does not have any knocking or engine noise. I was thinking Drive/half shaft or related issues but am no mechanic. What could this be?

Check the drive shaft "U" joints and slip joint for bad wear . If you have a centre bearing check it for serviceability. pull the plug in the diff and check the magnet for metal bits.

SOURCE: Front end knocking from 97 sebring

Move it to 3rd instead of drive and see if you still have the noise. May be transmission related since you have replaced everything else.

SOURCE: Clunk/rattle noise and vibration

Could be a loose exhaust hanger or a suspension issue. You will need to raise the vehicle up on a rack and visually inspect the truck for the problem. Start by using your fist or a rubber mallet to bang on the exhaust system and suspension to see if you can simulate the noise and identify the problem. Definently inspect it or have it inspected because if something is broken/loose it could come apart on you while you are driving.

SOURCE: Vibration in the drive train at 40 mph in my 1993 Ford 150

I would check the driveshaft universal joints and the play in the yolk joints where the driveshaft exits the transmission and where it enters the differential.
It could be the preliminary vibration caused by the deterioration in a universal joint, forewarning you that it's on the way out. Good Luck Vern

How do I change the 5 digit code on the keyless entry pad on driver's door on 2007 ford freestar? Also - what is the gas that is in the tires with the green cap? Where do I get them filled?


look in the manual or online every manufacture is different. The green cap could mean that they have slime a self sealing liquid. All tires take air and nothing else!

2004 Freestar-In Jan. it just started hesitating and it would not get over 30 mph. I had it towed to the dealer and they could not find problem. I picked it up and it ran good. I noticed the radio had lost...


Take van to reputable Ford dealer and have them hook it up to computer and check for any codes.
The vehicle computer might have to be reset for the egr system.What they did was disconnect your battery for the quicki reset for vehicle, thats why your radio had reset.

Have a 2007 freestar thats has a popping noise out of the throttle body thats sounds like popcorn popping. doesn't affect it running though.


its your mass air flow sensor. the air filter housing does not seal well, wich causes dirt and turbulance to (MASF). So your vehicle will begin to run richer, making a popping noise. then the vehicle will start to jump while driving or even stall.

Engine shutters and hesitates on my 2004 4.2l ford freestar


Check exhaust compression. Remove O2 sensor before the cataylatic converter and see if the hestiation stops. If it improves then the cats are cloged.
