problem #1

May 042006

Aerostar 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 214,000 miles
: the contact stated the vehicle was taken to a tire dealer for replacement of the tires. After the tires were replaced and vehicle was being driven home at 45mph, the vehicle hesitated as if the gears were not changing properly. The vehicle was returned to the tire dealer who determined the drive shaft was loose. The dealer recommended the vehicle not be used until the drive shaft was welded and the universal joint was replaced.
