Thanks again for responses. I drove unit again today. Vibration even begins at 5 mph. After a 10-15 min. drive i admit it may not be transmission related. i have no engine lights. It will take another spin for me to be even clearer. I usually go for the chevy's. I think this ford has the I-beam steering set up below. This is another issue. There seems to be some play slop in the steering that has always been a priority with me. I guess even at 45k miles there could be some loose parts in front end, and I do not know if previous owners did any of that under work like steering stabilizers etc. If I am driving cross country that can ennerve me as I am a control freak. Any suggestions there? I will take it in for evaluation Thursday. Doug

You can set a code without turning on the Check Engine Light. My '99 V10 had 2 bad coils and never set a code or CEL. However, using a code reader is the best place to start to keep you from replacing good parts or chasing down a rabbit hole.

Thought unit actually vibrated yesterday some before even moved. Today did not notice that. Took to an honest tran. shop. Guy said it seemed to shift ok but the vibration could result from the torque converter. Went to try to read codes and no read out. Had no owners manual so other fuse box not located. I just bought a Haynes manual. The tran. mechanic also said the engine missing could cause the vibration. Have another appt. Tues with truck mechanics. It is a 350 not a 450. Thanks Doug
