I had a similar problem with a 1994 f150. It was downshifting and upshifting hard. It took about 4 years to resolve my prolblem. It was the MLSP switch on the side of the transmission. Part and labor was $143.00. The irritating part of it is Ford issued a TSB for this problem in March, 1995. I talked with Ford at Dearborn and a local dealership about the problem I was having and neither mentioned the TSB.
You can backup and review messages #1270, 1273, 1276, 1280, 1286, 1292, and 1319. I wouldn't guarantee it but it might be worth a try.

Dear Chuck, I am writing you to inform u of a problem i had with a 1993 ford escort. It seems that i wrecked the electrical in the steering wheel. Now with the great brain trust at ford this shorted out the fuse when shifting the car into drive, so in order to drive i had to put new fuses into the fuse box just to get the car moving. I would hope that this problem still is not an issue 10 years later but hey its ford. I hope this sheds some lite on the matter. One question with all these probelms why stay ford i moved on, lets just say i joined a revolution.
#1452 of 2180 MISSING NOISE DURING ACCELERATION
Aug 24, 2005 (8:59 pm)
Has anyone had any problems with the 2004 6litre F350 superduty - problem is engine making a missing noise, doesn't matter if we are pulling the fifth wheel or just driving around town, it happens during acceleration. Have taken it in to numerous Ford dealerships however, they haven't been able to pinpoint the problem, the EGR valve has been replaced twice, that wasn't it, then they replaced the turbo, that wasn't it, so it sits at the dealership for another 'great' idea. CAN ANYONE HELP - IDEAS ANYONE.

Yep I had the same problem ,so far they have replaced the clutch plates and rack and pinon twice, replaced all 4 rotors, and i still get a little vibration , I think the timing might be off a degree or two. ford said everything checks out ok , yea right,

I have this same problem - I just bought a 2005 f150 lariat with the moonroof
with the moonroof completely open I get a severe vibration at about 25 mph which smooths out over 40 - it is the soft sliding cover vibrating against the roof - now even with the roof closed this same slider rattles every time i hit a bump - took it to the dealer and he said it happens with all of these and to crack a window - This I cant believe - when i test drove one didnt notice this if I had known this was going to be this kind of problem never would have bought this truck - kinda ruins the new truck experience

I THINK I HAD THE SAME THING WITH MY 2003 6.0 WHEN I PULLED MY BOAT/5TH WHEEL. WENT BACK TO THE DEALER 3-4 TIMES NO HELP. I FINALLY WENT TO A SECOND DEALER AND THEY REPLACED A SOLENOID TO THE TURBO IF YOU WANT E-MAIL BACK AND I WILL PULL OUT THE RECORD AND GIVE YOU PART #,S ETC.

We bought a 2004 Ford F150 FX4 in Nov of 04. We experienced a vibration on the test drive but we were told it was the tires. We have since been experiencing clunking and hesitation along with the vibration becoming worse. We have tried to get out of our lease but the dealership in Nanaimo BC, Canada has made it impossible to do. They have had the truck in for approx total of 2 weeks and replaced the drive shaft. This has not fixed the problem and they are now (eventhough we are still under warranty) refusing to fix the problem. They showed us a memo from Ford dated in Oct of 04 (which is a month before we purchased the truct) that stated the clunk on downshift is infact a CHARACTERISTIC OF THE FORD TRUCK and NOT TO ATTEMP TO FIX THE PROBLEM!!!!!!! If anyone has any ideas of what to do about this please let us know...I do not think that Canada has a lemon law and we pay $643.00/mth for a bum truck. It is most uncomfortable to drive. If I had of known this was a CHARACTERISTIC prior to signing I would have gone to Toyota or Nissan.

I have an identical problem with my F250SD Diesel. I also plowed snow with it this past season. I cannot figure out what this problem is. It doesn't seem to be the transmission or a U joint since the problem does not cease if I shift into neutral. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
