Yes, it is a characteristic of the truck. Ford designed that model to shake like that. I know because I bought one brand new. Long story short, it went to arbitration because it fell under the lemon law. Ford replaced everything on that truck. I met with the Ford field engineer who drove it then took me for a ride in a Lariat that did it too. He told me that it is a characteristic of these trucks and there is nothing they can do about it. He said Ford made the frame too stiff. What a bunch of BS. 6 months later I got all my money back, every penny and Ford took the truck back. Bought a Nissan. Love it.

I have a 07 Ford F150.. it does alot of vibrating when I slow down to stop. It shakes hard then quits on me. I have had it in a few times, they put it on a machine, the machine indicates nothing is wrong??? they just replaced cams today, thought that was the issue.. Ran the truck for awhile and it started again. Now I don't know what to do.... I was wondering if my intuition is right in thinking it has something to do with the Oil pressure?
When the truck is shaking, if I give press the accelerater it stops shaking???
ANY IDEAS??? please.. Thank you!

I got 2007 f-150 and about 3 months ago or longer i had my truck in for the tranny jerking. the technition told me the tranny need a down load of some sort. so they did it, and it ran fine for a while, no it is doing something different, i will be driving down the highway and between 50 and 60 mph the motor will rev up about 5,000 rpm and then rev back down it will do that a few time and does it when i hit that speed. can anybody tell me what it might be.

well yes i can verify that that is a good question i can answer for you today i had the same problem with mine and its an 08n well what it turned out to be was with the transmission it had something to do with the computers and the torque converter was slipping on and off like it grabbing one second and the next it was up in the rpmss and then dropping back down so i would take it somewhere other than ford to have it tested or checked they once ripped my tranny apart and then saif it wasnt covered and put it in the back of the truck cause i wasnt paying them to rip my tranny apart and not diagnose what the problem was after it was dreivin there now i had to have it towed out of ford so stay far as away from a ford dealership as you can far far far far away b

I was having the same problem with the shaking. When it was occurring I pulled over and checked the rear wheels. I can't recal which one it was now, but I believe it was the right wheel, anyhow, it was extremely hot. That is when I realized that the brake was stuck. I immediately drove it to my Ford dealer and they told me they fixed it. I found out the next time I went to change my rear brakes that all they did was disconnect my emergency brake. I did some more research and found that to fix the emergency brake from locking up I needed to replace the emergency brake cable. I haven't done that yet. Anyhow, that is a thought for the shaking you are experiencing.

I just wanted to post a quick suggestion for you owners with that unknown vibration at take off... Mine also had the weird vibration... It was caused by the Air Intake Hose where it mounts to the drivers side quarter panel... It was just loose enough that it would only vibrate right at accelleration .. Just wedge something in there and solved the prob... But, it too has the infamous "diesel" sound.. Was told from dealer on day 1 that was just the way they sound.. 55,900 mi and about to do a plug change.. Wish me luck..

Most likely your Mass air flow sensor. Mine did this for about 4 months no one could tell me what it was not even ford. I changed that it ran perfect. Its simple to do just unplug take out 2 screws slide it out new in. Only takes couple of min to do.

I own a very well maintained 2005 f150. Had a similar vibration, almost like the transmission was failing. Vibration always happened when the truck was in a higher gear and while the excelerator was gradually being pressed, like when I was starting to climb a hill. Usually at speeds between 40-55mph. Turned out to be one bad ignition coil, and 5 different spark plugs where periodically missing. The mechanics drove the truck with their diagnostics hooked up to it and fiigured it out. The repair was done at the dealership, and the cost was under $300. Problem totally fixed.
