1998 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 139400 miles
My truck shakes (or shimmies) just briefly when I press the gas pedal from a dead spot. It almost feels as if it is shifting, but Im sure it is not. It just shimmies once each time a start from a dead stop. Then it shifts fine through all of the gears. When I stop, I feel one more shake (or shimmie) immediately after stopping.
A friend says he thinks it's the rear differential. If so, is that something easy to fix myself or is that a complicated fix not for the do-it-yourselfer?
have the same problem?
