Question about 1991 Ford Ranger Supercab

1 Answer

Some vibrating felt when driving. I checked the U joints and they seemed to be okay. When checking the U joints I noticed I was able to move the driveshaft back and forth in park and neutral. I think it is in the transmission? Am I right!

It is normal for a little bit of movement in the driveshaft if the U-joints are good. Get your tires balanced and see if that solves your vibration problem.

Toyota 4 runner, 1990. vibration


very possible
front drive shaft is the most likely as it does little work and the grease tends to dry out promoting wear
check all slip joints on both drive shafts as well as "u" joints
check engine mounts and front diff mounts as if they are broken , that will allow misalignment of the shaft angles

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

2000 Dodge Dakota vibration while driving


sound like the u-joints in the driveshaft. Lay under the truck and where the u-joints are try moving the driveshaft up and down. If it moves then the u-joints are bed. This will cause a tremendous vibration under a load and the faster it spins it will smooth out.

Your noise sounds like it is power train related,If you have eliminated the engine,Since it doesn't make the noise while moving and in neutral.
It sounds like a universal joint in the drive shaft.Do you notice a vibration
along with the noise?

Vibration felt in front floorboard


Yes it can but the dealer would have found it on the test drive if they test drove the vehicle. The only other causes for the vibration I can think of should have been found on inspection as well. Check your bushings and mounts for the sway bar and your tie rod ends as well.

Front end vibration


on both my Camrys, i had this problem. You could really notice it when you were driving down the road going 40-60 mph and punch the gas - car would vibrate, let off the gas - vibration stops, punch the gas - car vibrates...... On both, it was the CV joints. It is much easier to just replace the drive axles (with the new cv joints and boots already installed). For my last replacement, i think thy were only around $65 each.

High speed vibration


try checking your bearings on both sides. as for your brakes when you change your rotors try changing both of them as well as your pads. i had the same problems and that fixed it. if it persists i would look at your ball joints and then your calipers. good luck.
