Thanks man I will tell my dealer your fix for sure. I rarely use my emergeny brake though. I have been thinking about it and there is one place on the interstate that if I hit over certain speed it does it every time good thing is its a straigt strech and seems to be just a second or two and stops. Today was around a long curve and it didnt stop till I slowed down it was like going over speed bumps every 2 feet at 75 and trying to hold the turn. Ive had ford trucks for many years and stood by them my buddys have gone to chevy and even toyota. I love the truck but its making me think.

have your dealer look at the emergency brake system. mine was self engaging at speeds of 45-50 mph. so far so good,
#90 of 182 non-continuous vibration in Ford F250
Nov 26, 2007 (3:57 pm)
I've been reading through the discussions on vibration because my Ford F250 has a similar problem. I think it may be different than those discussed because this vibration is not continuous and it is not a violent vibration. It comes and goes at random times, usually starting or stopping after I hit a bump in the road. I've taken the truck to a Ford dealership for a diagnostic, but they said everything was normal (since that diagnostic, the seals had to be replaced because they were leaking and the alternator went out). I also took it to a Firestone center and they also said that everything was normal. The vibration is increasing, but it is still not continuous. Does anyone know what this could be??? I think we would do better to just drive this truck off a cliff after all that has been replaced since it was purchased, but since I'm an optomist, I guess I'll try to fix one last thing! Oh, the truck has around 125,000 miles if that helps.
#91 of 182 Vibration at idle and driving
Nov 27, 2007 (3:16 pm)
2000 F-150 4.6 V-8 120,000 miles. New brakes/rotors,ball joints,tires,u-joints,shocks,IAC valve,o2 sensors, spark plugs, all filters,rear seals, serpentine belt,fluids great,motor mounts good and tight, fuel system cleaned professionally, NO trouble codes on my scanner,runs great EXCEPT for the vibration at idle and driving. My side mirrors shake noticeably because of it. Took it back to Belle Tire to check balance and they SAID they were fine. Could it be the timing is off ? I did a vaccum check and it was GREAT. I take care of my truck and am used to being able to figure things out. I'm stuck on this one. Any ideas before I buy a timing light ? Thanks.

I am having a vibration issue also. ( see post # 91 ) I THINK my motor mounts are tight, but I could only reach 2 of the bolts. Maybe the rubber is cracked. It happens. Anyway, it may be your motor mounts causing the vibration, but how do you test those things to know for sure ? Good luck and let me (us) know if you find the cause.
