I have a 1992 Taurus Wagon with 69K miles. During low speed acceleration (from 0 to roughly 15mph) it feels like the right passenger side tire is hitting a pothole one time. The entire frame seems to be lifting on the right passenger side by about 2-4 inches. It does this if you stop and accelerate back up to 15 again, one time. The tires are new (1 month old) and have had no recent other problems. At higher speeds there seem to be no problems when accelerating (even-almost-floored). I checked the transmission fluid today and it appeared pink and free of debris (and at the proper level). The oil *could* use another quart and it isn't real black at all, still a bit brown. I've had one problem that I doubt is related to the acceleration bump which is that the Brake assembly is fairly rusty and causes some rust between the front disks and that makes some squealing even though the pads are pretty new. Only other maintenance I can think of is that 8 months ago I changed the plugs to solve a mileage problem. It is now getting roughly 25mpg overall.
Thanks so much in advance for your responses!
have the same problem?
