2006 ford explorer shakes, no codes or lights on. Replaced transmission, cables, plugs, and still shaking. Had it checked twice, vacuums connected. Its a mystery.
When does it shake, at idle, cruising down the road at a certain speed? Do you mean vibration or an idle that goes up and down?
You feel it most at low idle. But even at highway speed you can still feel it. Just spoke with ford where they are doing a diagnostic, and they have no idea either.
Will it help if I disconnect the battery for a day. Maybe it will clear the computer from thinking that something is wrong.
Is it necessarily from the engine or transmission? Could it be coming from the rear end, or wheel bearing? Just passing along what I experienced when a wheel bearing went bad.
Thank you. I will have that checked.
I would avoid highway speeds until you make sure it's not a bearing. If it is shaking as bad as you say it is, and it IS a bearing, your wheel could come off. Good luck!
Could be the driveshaft. Especially since you had a new trans installed, the shop might not have orientated it correctly when they reinstalled it. It should be installed in the same orientation it was removed. Try rotating the driveshaft one bolt hole at a time till the vibration is gone.
Dealing with this issue since March 1st, 3 different ford's service diagnostics, and going on this site, finally problem solved. It was a partially dislodge pcv valve and hose. Thank you all for your inputs. Greatly appreciated.
So glad you were able to get it fixed.
