can someone give me some input on a problem i am haveing on a 1989 ford
heres the problem. the curise control jerks when going down the road at any
speed it seems to hve a hard time maintaining a constance speed. also when i
am driveing down the road and i let off and then gas it theres is a clunk. i
am thinking ring and pinion slop. when i run the engine and put the
automatic tranny in reverse and then to drive theres a clunk. but i checked
the universal joints there good but seem like driveshaft turns alot before
read end stops it.
could ring and pinion cause the curise control to act like i described
I remember a while back we had a ranger in the shop that had a clunk when
going into reverse.
after checking everything very closely it was the driveshaft. There was an
updated driveshaft for it available from Ford and it fixed it. Please note
above.."after checking everything". Not likely a little slop in the
drivetrain would cause the cruise to go goofy though.
