there was nothing in it
Ford Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 8 months ago

I feel like you may have poor quality mounts, I'd consider buying OEM mounts. I'll open question back up to see if someone else has some different ideas.

Does it vibrate when just reving the engine in neutral?

Parking brake set, if someone watches your engine while you start to release the clutch in 1st and Reverse does the engine or trans move excessive?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
