truck shakes when I turn from a stop, stops shaking as I straighten out my steering. Worst when I am stopped with my wheels turned then drive.
I think I narrowed it to my power steering b/c when I am stopped, in gear or park and turn the wheel from left to right it shakes. I just drained and refilled the ps fluid, I had topped it off with power steering fluid and thought maybe mixing it with the mercon messed it up. No difference.
I put the front end up on jacks and could not find any play in any ball joins or tie rods.
I do not want to take it in to the dealer if I do not have to. Why? I already had to replace the plugs and #4 coil and throttle body. Oh and I think my cats are bad-another story. This truck sucks. Never had a problem with any ford until this one. It must have been made on a Friday before a long weekend.
This summer we put on 4k miles towing a 5300lb camper-loaded with us about 7500lbs-to Texas, Tn mountains and back to Fl. I use a weight distributing hitch.
My belt is in the middle of the wear mark on the tensioner. I am thinking it is the pump or the rack. Any other ideas? Thanks
thanks Atom, I figure I will start with the simplest and cheapest and work my way up. Ps pump is about 70 bucks, may as well do my drive belt too. If that doesnt work I guess I will try the rack. Has anyone used the rebuild kit? http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...AMS_1004047966___
i have never rebuilt a pump yet, for the cost of the kit and downtime, just was never worth it to me, if you got nothing but time, go for it, i do hear that if you don't do it exactly right, it will leak.
