Ford Has Become Infamous for the “Ford Shake”
The “Ford Shake” refers to a problem that some Ford truck owners have reported, where the vehicle experiences a significant and persistent shaking or vibration, typically while driving at highway speeds. The problem can affect the steering wheel, seat, and entire body of the truck, and can be felt most acutely at around 65-75 mph. Once the Ford truck starts shaking, it can make the truck more likely to become uncontrollable on the roads. This action can lead to a serious accident with other vehicles, where there is a high likelihood of personal injuries for all parties to the crash.
Why Do Ford Vehicles Shake and Shimmy?
The exact cause of the Ford shake is not definitively known, and may be the result of several factors related to the manufacturing of the vehicles, including:
- Uneven tire wear: If the tires are worn unevenly, this can cause the vehicle to shake, especially at high speeds.
- Wheel imbalance: If the wheels are not balanced properly, this can cause the vehicle to shake, especially at high speeds.
- Worn suspension components: Worn suspension components, such as shock absorbers or ball joints, can cause the vehicle to shake and vibrate, especially at high speeds.
- Bent or damaged wheels: Bent or damaged wheels can cause the vehicle to shake and vibrate, especially at high speeds.
- Engine or transmission problems: In some cases, engine or transmission problems can cause the vehicle to shake and vibrate, especially at high speeds. It is recommended to take the vehicle to a qualified mechanic for an inspection and diagnosis to determine the specific cause of the Ford shake.
