asked by on

My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. It’s probably a good idea to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location to complete an inspection of your Ford Explorer before having any parts replaced. Typically a stabilizer bar / link problem is accompanied by symptoms; such as vibrating in the steering wheel, a pull to the left or right when you’re driving straight, or a clunking noise as you’re driving down the road or hit bumps. I would recommend if you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms to submit a request to have a mobile mechanic come to your location to determine if you have any damaged components that require replacement.
