We own a 2010 FFH. We purchased it used in 2012 and it's worked great since then.  Only thing we have done so far are replace the under the hood battery and the spark plugs (twice), cabin filter, and of course engine oil when it tells us to.

 

We initially the thought the vibration was coming from a bad spark plug, so we ordered new MotorCraft ones and the vibration is still present with the ICE is running at low RPM and up to about 60mph you can feel it.  We also thought bad gas or something, but we have been through a full tank and vibration issue still persists. 

 

A couple of days ago at very low speed when the brakes are applied, I hear what sounds like a rubber hose rubbing against something on the passenger side engine compartment.  We are thinking engine mount on the passenger side, but not sure how to check it.

 

Anyone have any ideas on how to check if the motor mount is bad or maybe what else would cause this issue.  There are no lights coming on in the dash and the engine seems to be running fine, sound wise, it's just the vibration from the engine that causes the rearview mirror to vibrate and whatever is loose in the dashboard area, mainly that compartment door on top of the dash.

 

Ideas or thoughts?

Thank you!

We can all be great arm chair mechanics, but without being present to hear or feel the vibration, anything said would be pure speculation. I think it's time to take it to your local Ford dealer to get it checked out.

Thanks gkinla.  Just wanted to know if maybe anyone else was or had experienced the same sort of issue and what it was/could be.  My husband is pretty handy and if we can fix ourselves and save some cash that's always a good thing.  We just are not sure where to look next.  Plus it always a good teaching lesson for our kids.

 

Anyone have the same or similar issue?

UPDATE: It was the passenger motor mount causing all this.  Had it replaced and all is good.

How did you diagnose it?

Honestly just by the way it sounded and listening to it for about a month or so.  Sounded like a car door wasn't closed right.
