Just recently my 2002 Ford Escape 2.0L 4WD with manual transmission has started juddering when I come off the gas and coast at freeway speeds.
As soon as I get back onto the gas (or shift into neutral) the juddering stops. It’s not a major death wobble-style judder, it’s just enough to be noticeable and to indicate that something’s probably wearing out. There are no strange noises or driveability issues other than this, and it doesn’t happen at speeds below around 50mph.
I’m leaning towards it being the engine mounts, which are still the factory originals at 130k miles. Does that sound likely, or should I also be looking at other causes?
