Hi..my name is Keith..and i can think of 3 possible causes..the 1st one is a tire out of balance..sometime the wheel balancing weights come off...the 2nd one is that the belts in a tire is broken..and the 3rd one is..that you have a warped brake rotor..it shouldnt cost much to have a shop to look at it and fix it..i hope this has helped

Automatic four will drive will continuously engage and disengage.


Have the codes read to find the problem. Being auto, look to the ABS system for a bad or erratic wheel sensor. Could be a shorted wire also.

My 1997 Ford Explorer XL shakes when I start it. What could it be?


Spraying WD40 on the belt stops it from squeaking, no need to replace it.
If it is misfiring, that will cause a shudder at low RPM.
There is no such think as an intake valve gasket. A manifold gasket on the inlet side, can let air into the mixture and cause misfire. Normally that is fixed by tightening loose nuts on the studs that locate the manifold.

Does my 2003 ford explorer sport have front wheel drive, rear wheel drive or all wheel drive. my email is kmmock1@gmail.com


it is most likely an automatic awd, 4 hi is full time 4 wheel drive, 4 lo is full time 4 wheel drive but at a very low gear ratio and should not exceed 25 mph or could cause damage. and DO NOT shift into 4 lo while vehicle is in motion. Auto is a 2 wheel drive but automatically engages into 4 wheel drive under heavy acceleration.

This is often the result of a tire that is out of balance. Check for bubbles on any of the tires and have the tires balanced. That should clear up the problem.

2002 Ford Explorer Jerking when in motion


Does the jerking feel like a fish bite ( especially when pulling a hill?) if so it may need plugs and wires

if you have one bad plug wire the problem seems to smooth out at higher speeds

Hope this helps
