I have a 2011 F-150 with 70k on it, when i take it on a long run ( 30 + miles) it shakes when I try to turn, it only shakes in the front end, normal in-town driving short distance drives the problem is not present.  Would bearings be the culprit?  It almost feels like 4 wheel drive is trying to activate on dry pavement.

It is entirely possible that the vacuum supply to the front hubs is getting lost on the longer trips and engaging the 4WD.

After a long drive and when the problem is present remove the vacuum line from one of the front hubs. There will be two hoses molded together. One should have vacuum and the other is a vent.

Typically one of the hubs or one of the lines will fail and you will hear a clicking noise. I have also had them make some very faint grinding noises under acceleration and not make a peep any other time.

Update on this, I had a long distance trip this weekend (128 miles one way) and once I got to my destination I had to back out of a spot and it shook really bad in the back end while backing up and then also when trying to go forward with the wheels slightly turned.  It is going into the dealership Thursday to get fixed.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
