I have searched the form and see things for shuddering while driving (not the issue I am having) So if I am placing in the wrong place I am very sorry! I have a 2015 Ford Explorer Limited. While the car is running and placed in park, if someone gets out and closes the door the whole car shudders. It will also do this when I place the car in park and shut it off...it shudders the whole car as well (that's a new one). It will also shudder while in drive but my foot is on the break and someone closes a door. Sometimes it just does it while idling. Most of the shuddering seems to center around the park position, foot on brake and closing of doors while in the park position and running. Just wondering if anyone has experienced the same problem and might have a solution or recommendation for me. Please help if you can.

Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
I'm guessing you are talking about engine shutter and not the actual body. Is that right? I don't recall anyone else posting a similar issue. No issues when driving or going over bumps etc?

No, it's the actual car. The whole body and wheel.None when driving. Sometime when I first drive it in the morning it feels kinda shaky but it's in the exact spot every morning and doesnt do it again until the next morning. I'm assuming that's the road.

New tires can have flat spots that vibrate moderately when first driven.... for couple miles
Could be suspension issues, misfiring, etc. I am just guessing, sorry. Trying to help......

Have a dealer or independent shop check it out, my recommendation.

I have this exact same issue. Did you ever get to a root cause? It was happening primarily with the passenger front door, but now I can replicate it with the driver side front as well. I can't get it to happen 100% of the time, but I am hoping to reproduce it for a service tech sometime soon.
