Alright, I figure the explorer won't sell here so this won't hurt me that much. Anyways, the issue is with the 98 Ford Explorer I put up for sale (if you want full stats pull up the thread). It occasionally shakes during acceleration. The times that it accelerates smoothly I've noticed a great lack in power and responsivness. The only two major repairs recently was a replaced belt and fuel pump.

My first instinct was a cylinder misfire, but I would notice the shaking during idle, which I'm not. Sooo, anybody have any ideas?

I'm hoping it's something simple and uncostly... :)

It could be anything. But if you wanted to start somewhere I would give it a tune up. Plus how does this relate to your GA?

Check your tire pressure, its probablly not that but it doesnt hurt to check that out.

it relates because if i can get this thing to sell then i get comission, and that money goes towards the GA. :)

it wasn't in the shop that long ago, but i'd hate to have to sink alot of money into it if im going to be turning around and selling it.
