You need your mounts replaced. They’re faulty since manufacture, but they never did a recall. They expand in the summer and crack in the winter. The longer you go with the vibrations without replacing them, you’ll eventually do damage elsewhere.

can I get ford to replace or is this a out of pocket expense?


#6

Ford is not going to replace ( motor mounts ) on a 18 year old vehicle . You need to have codes read and I seriously doubt if your vibration is the mounts . If you going to have a mechanic repair this vehicle just describe the symptoms as best you can then get out of the way.

Out of pocket unfortunately
