Shaking on 99 explorer

I will be sitting in park and everything will seem to be fine. As soon as
I put it in drive the my 99 explorer starts to shake. It does it in
reverse as well. The vehicle is not rolling so it is not the tires. Also
when tring to excelerate sometimes it tends to sputter. I dont trust the
dealerships and It is still under warranty. Ive heard many horrer stories
about the transmission problems with these. any insight would be extremely
helpful. Thanks

Re: Shaking on 99 explorer

Well, as long as the mileage and engine size are a secret and, if you're
willing to take advice from one of those dealership bandits... I'd suggest a
codes scan and possibly an ignition tune up (plugs and wires) and, if
necessary, further diagnostics. You an spend your time worrying about horror
stories or you can get the car fixed.

Most problems arise when people drive the things until they wont move rather
than fixing problems when they are still small..... ask my son....

Re: Shaking on 99 explorer

I had a problem similiar to yours and I took it to the dealer. Turned
out it was a defective ignition coil spark pack. They had the right
equipment to diagnose the problem. Do yourself a favor and bring it to
the dealer. Not all dealer shops are bad. I've had a pleasant
experience with my dealer
