Trans or steering issue?
I'm new here. I'm no enthusiast, just a guy who happens to own two Rangers.
This question is related to my 1991 5-speed 4.0 liter 4x4.
At low speeds, especially in 2nd gear, but also in first, at constant speed, not as much when accelerating, there is a very noticeable shaking.. Okay, more like shuddering. It's a little bit more...urgent... when you steer.
Now, the alignment is really, really messed up. it's almost like |-\ on the right. The left is out, too... Ball joints have been replaced, as well as the tie-rod ends. I haven't aligned it yet, because I believe more parts need replacement.
Anyways, for the shuddering... Could the poor alignment and aged front-end parts cause it, or might it be the transmission? Within the last few thousand miles, it's had a new clutch installed. But I know nothing more about it.
If it might be the transmission, hell, I'll just drive it till it dies. If it's the steering... well, I'm fixing that anyways. I just want to know which it could be.
I suppose with shuddering, it is more likely a tranny thing... Like I said, I'm just a guy who happens to own two Rangers.
