Re: stalls in reverse and vibrates at about 65mph

Does it stall consistantly in reverse? Or only when it's cold? If only when cold then check for vacuum leaks. I never heard of a motor cutting out in any specific gear. On the vibration check your U Joints. If you have wheeled it hard on rocks lately make sure you didn't bash, gouge, or bend your drive shaft. NORM

yeah the vibration could definatley be the u joints. The last one I blew out I tested it by putting it in towing gear and blam , she broke. Youll know itll grow real loud. As for stalling in reverse....... humm . Not sure what it could be.

Re: stalls in reverse and vibrates at about 65mph

could be a torque convertor lockup issue, try barely tapping the brakes (enough to turn on taillights only) at 65mph and see if the vibration disappears. if so, it's probably a convertor lockup issue, but it may or may not be related to your stalling. i assume you've gotten no Check Engine flashes? it might be worth checking the codes anyway, you dont always see the tranny-related errors.

Re: stalls in reverse and vibrates at about 65mph

Sorry for not getting took off for a few days.
The check engine light did come on one day that was it
then it shut off.As for the vibration had tire balanced
front tire on they out sides where choppy uneven had them
put on back.Still make same noise maybe little less.
What would make tires wear like that?
could noise allso be wheel bearing?I bought the bronco off
the Blm in Albaquerque about a year ago .It came with a
10,000 pound Ramsy whinch has 4 shocks in front,only had
70,000 miles when i bought it.
Any ways thanks for all the help. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]

that means it stored a code in your computer's memory... one of the nicest features of EFI is that it will tell you what's wrong, or at least give you a direction to point toward. pull the codes and you'll be way ahead of the game.
