IS YOUR LOUD VIBRATION A LOUD RATTLE IF SO IT COULD BE YOUR CAT BREAKING UP THIS WILL CAUSE BAD RUNNING ..GIVE YOUR ENGINE A GOOD REV 3 or 4 TIMES OUT OF GEAR AND LISTEN FOR A RATTLE,,,,, HOPE THIS HELPS IF NOT CHECK THAT THE EXHAUST IS NOT BLOCKED ?? BEST OF LUCK-ELL BOY.

The gas milage and the engine running rough could mean that you need a tune up like replacing your spark plugs and wires,
Ignition coil, Fuel filter and air filter. The vibration may be your engine mounts needs replace.

Does the speed sensor being bad make the engine run rough?


Yes the speed sensor could affect the cruise control, no it would not have any affect on the engine performance.

My son has an automatic 2001 ford focus se.. It has bad vibrations under the gas pedal area and seems loud when driving.. The vibrations are there even when the car isn't moving.. The motor sounds...


Without seeing the car this can only be my best guess.

The exhaust runs out of the engine then between the engine and trans then right under the middle of the car, check your exhaust, look for missing or broken hangers.

The factory radio is ****, Ebay has many factory replacements, it seems the volume knob always fails first. To remove the unit go to your local Advance Auto or like and get the Ford radio removing kit, it's 2 bent wires O_o!

I do hope this helps.
