I need some help figuring out what's wrong with my mustang. I just got it about 2 months ago and it drove fine when I got it. Recently though almost every time I start in first or reverse (no other gears), regardless of the amount of gas I give it, it still shakes. It feels like it isn't getting enough power and makes the transmission shake, I'm just assuming it's the transmission. I just replaced the spark plugs about a week ago and the car has 218k miles
Any ideas on what it could be? Thanks!
The shake only happens in first or reverse, right as I start to move. I've started in second and it doesn't make the shake. Shifting into second, third, fourth, fifth all feel fine and no shaking occurs if I'm just cruising in any of those, litteraly only first and reverse right when the car starts moving from a stop
I've seen a lot of reports of this being caused by driveline issues, not transmission issues. Check the pinion angle and all rubber in the rear axle and driveshaft areas up to the transmission. Something may be out of alignment or too worn.
Driveline looks to be in pretty good shape, I don't see anything too worn out or anything that looks bad, I think what you said about the injectors could possibly be my issue, how do I remove the fuel rail to check the injectors?
