Why does my truck shudder when I Turn Left?

My 2004 f-150 supercab 4wd, 83,000 miles, has started to shudder when you turn left or right from a dead stop, if you go straight it does not do it. It feels like it is in rear end but probably isn’t. The transmission fluid is upossed to be a lifetime fluid but I don’t know about that.

Why does my Chevy truck clunk when I turn?

Mine in the 2010 is different and there is a huge cv looking boot and u-joints on it that were clunking on me. I replaced and it went away. I would presume you got the “updated” version if you replaced your intermediate shaft so would not suspect it to be bad. It could be that something is shifting in the suspension and making the clunk.

What causes your steering wheel to go up and down?

Problem: Wheel Tramp. Wheel tramp is the hopping up and down of your wheel at higher speeds. In addition to any of the possible causes listed under shimmy, here are a few more possible contributing factors: Possible Cause #1: Wheels out of balance. Possible Cause #2: Excessive wheel runout.

Why does my Silverado make a popping noise when I turn?

The noise seemed to be coming from the passenger side, but I can feel the pop through the floor as well. The noise has become progressively louder (sometimes a BANG!) and appears to be louder the steeper the incline I park on. The noise has started to occur in drive at low speeds, but only during sharp LEFT turns.

Why does my car shudder when I Turn Left?

If the shudder is more pronounced in left turns, it is associated with a problem on the right front. If the shudder is more pronounced in the right turns, the problem is associated with the left front. The problem might exist in tires, tie rods, or other steering linkage components. Step 5: Inspect the front end.

Why is my steering wheel hard to turn right?

Re: Steering wheel hard to turn right but not left at… Check the power steering fluid level. Left is torque side and probably tightens the belt as right it would loosen the belt a little so check the belt for sloppyness too. Hope this helps, The Raz

Why does my car pull to the side when taking a turn?

Also, the front-end alignment is another important thing. Uneven wear on the front tires will make your car pull to a side while driving or taking a turn. Uneven tire tread leads to misalignment of the wheels, which can also a reason that triggers hard and stiff steering at the time of making turns on the road.

Why is my Shift Solenoid not working properly?

Diagnosis is key when it comes to transmission problems, as various issues can cause similar problems. Trouble with wiring or sensors could be at fault instead. A faulty shift solenoid should be replaced. In some cases, the solenoid is integrated into the valve body and isn’t serviceable.

What to do when your torque converter shudders?

Transmissions can shudder in a very similar manner to torque converters. To determine whether the shudder is tranny or TC related, run your vehicle for a little while till it begin to shudder and immediately park it. With your foot on the brake, put the transmission in Drive, and apply light throttle.

What to do when your F150 shakes and shudders?

Replace joints by removing the bolts and nuts from the end of the drive shaft, then remove the shaft itself. The joints will remain attached to the drive shaft. Spray WD-40 on the joints at the end. After you have removed the U-joints, clean up the ends until they are nice and shiny.

Why does my car shudder when I accelerate?

The engine mounts in your vehicle are used to attach the entire motor to the frame of your vehicle. Without proper engine mounts it would literally fall out of the bottom of your car. As part of the function of the engine mounts the vibrations from your engine are significantly reduced so you don’t feel them through the car while you’re driving it.

What’s the vibration frequency of a TCC Shudder?

If TCC shudder is present, a vibration peak will appear at approximately 43Hz +/-3Hz. (Fig. 18) If the vibration frequency follows engine, tire, or driveshaft speed, then it is not a TCC shudder vibration. An alternative diagnostic for TCC shudder is to road test the vehicle and monitor commanded and actual TCC slip speeds.

When does cold, engine shakes and hesitates during acceleratio?

After the vehicle sits overnight (cold engine), during idle, engine vibrates and after about a minute vibration’s gone and comes back again a minute after – this cycle goes on and only stops when the engine becomes hot. When driving cold, i notice that the engine does not have enough power as before. It hesitates and shakes when going uphill.

When does the torque converter start to shudder?

It generally occurs at part throttle and light acceleration, between 15 and 50 miles per hour, just before the shift to one of the top gears where the converter reaches “lock-up.” Since it is temperature-related, it tends to happen on hot days, after idling in traffic for long periods of time.
