You are right on the spot when you suspect oil pressure. I have a 2008 F150 with a 5.4L.
I took my truck in for the third time for a vibration at Idle. The just installed a new engine for me. The problem had been it would never register a fault code. This time it did the put a manual oil pressure gauge on the engine and at idle the oil pressure jumped all over causing the computer over compensate. I would recommend using a manual oil pressure gauge. I think this is a known problem the dealer is a good dealer but they were very fast to offer a new engine This was all covered by the factory warranty of 60,000 mile power train I have 54,000 miles on my truck. I would check this out new 5.4L retail installed 6,000.00 comes with 3 year 36000 mile warranty. Maybe you could plead your case to the dealer if you bought it new

I have a 2004 F-150 with close to 138K, recently in 3/4 gear at 45-55 MPH when I barley step on the gas the engine hesitates and bucks, pretty rough sometimes. Once I give it a little bit more gas it clears up and runs fine. Ford can't find the problem or get it to duplicate which is very surprising as it happens all the time. Any thoughts to a Mass Air Flow sensor or possible Catalytic convertors are bad with that many miles? Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is very frustrating.

Mine was doing the same thing......it almost felt like a tranny problem.....it was actually the spark plugs.....Have you changed them? I have an 2004 f150 5.4 Gas....with 126xxx. Just got it back, and its runing like new.
Hope this helps.

Hello i have an 08 f150 and have had the same problem you will be driving along and there will be aloud noise and shaking so you slow down and pull over and come almost to a stop and a loud clunk then go again it will be fine for a while or happen right away anyway i took it into the garage and the mecanic told me rite away after explaining what was going on he said its the 4*4 vacume box on your firewall ( pasanger side) little black box anyway he took that off and cleaned it and there was a crack on the back side and that was sucking air letting your 4 wheel drive kick in so he replaced it and seems all right now. hope this helps

Mine is the same and I had a brand new transimission installed , and U Joints replaced, tires rotated and I was told to try and replace the transmission sensor, and spark plugs. I haven't done either yet, if and when I do I will let you know if it works.
