    Vibration When Braking

    When I brake, especially if going over 40MPH or so, the front end seems to vibrate quite a bit. My brake pads aren't in the best condition and I have a new set of rotors and pads coming next week (ugh, I hate shipping time). Does it sound like something new rotors and pads might fix?

    1998 EB Explorer vibrating

    Hi, I drove my Explorer Sunday and it was fine but Tuesday when I started driving to work it started vibrating. No noises, maybe a little louder which led me to believe it was an exhaust issue but it's not. My co-worked checked the spark plugs and wires and said they seem to be ok. I'm a female...

    08 Explorer dual heat blower noise (Mr Mousie's wild ride)

    SO I get in the car last night for the first time in about a week. Aways down the road, I turn the heater fan on low. I hear a very faint tick tick tick. I speed it up and it sounds like when you were a kid and you put baseball cards in your spokes to make your bike sound like a motorcycle...
