I have a 2005 FX4 with the same problem. It is not a vibration, but severe shaking. I just got home from the dealer and they are ordering a part for the steering. They had a truck in recently with the same problem and think they fixed it. They couldn't tell me exactly what the part was as their computer system was down and they needed to look up the truck that was repaired. I can let you know what they found when mine is fixed. It sounds like FORD should already be aware of this problem. I have never had anything shake this bad before and like you say, usually if you come to a complete stop it is fine when starting up again.

I got a cylinder 2 misfire reading and the guy at advance told me to replace the coil pack. Well, I did and now it will not start. I get a sound like a machine gun popping off when I try to start it. Anybody know what that is?

I checked into the 4wd problem further now that i had my borther in law over to help me. On the front axle there is a black disc with one pink and one blue vacuum lines on it. when I move the actuator on the front axle that is attached to this black disc with my hand the front wheels turn (the truck is up on jacks and blocks) but the actuator does not stay in. I took off each vacuum line at that disc and only the pink line has a vacuum, the blue line does not even though I have the shifter in 4hi. I then followed the blue line up to the hood next to the batter and took it off there....it appears to be mated with a white vacuum line that did have vacuum. So this leaves me thinking either it is the thing next to the battery that these twho lines plug onto or it is a sensor somewhere else on the transfer case it self that tells the blue vacuum line to start suction. Also, the 4*4 indicator light does not come on in the dash.....any ideas?

If you manually turn your locking hubs on it should go away..One at a time will show you which hub is bad. Either wheel bearing or shaft is bad.

#1477 of 2180 Do I need a tranny cooler?
Sep 05, 2005 (8:25 am)
I'm towing a uhaul trailer with a 99 f-150 4.6 (4x4) from CT to Ohio. Do I need to have a tranny cooler installed? I don't think it came with the towing package (I do have the electric harness for the trailer, but no hitch.) I don't know squat about towing, so any help would be appreciated!
