4th Gear Shimmy

1043 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Mark Kovalsky
My 2003 F350 diesel 6.0 liter gives me a shimmy when it goes into 4th gear (right at 45-50 mph). When the engine is cold it feels like either the engine or the transmission is causing a bucking/jerking sensation at the low end of the 4th gear. When I step down harder on the throttle, the turbo kicks in and all is fine.

Once the engine is warm the shimmy is less noticeable, but still present.

Any ideas?

It sounds like an engine miss.
Yes, that's it exactly.
