I have an '05 SCREW w/ about 86,000 miles. Doing the exact same thing. Seems to happen in higher gears, 30-50 mph around 1200 rpm.

Sounds like exactly"> what's happening with my 2007 F150 SuperCrew, 5.4, 75K miles. Happens on a slight incline if I take my foot off accelerator and then gently press accelerator again at around 50 mph. "Slamming" is a pretty good description of it. It's a heavy jerking/clunking. I usually either let off or give more accelerator to make it stop. It seems to have something to do with shifting in or out of overdrive. If I turn overdrive off, it doesn't happen. What's the fix for this?
#569 of 607 2006 Transmission - F150
Feb 12, 2012 (12:14 pm)
Please forgive me, I'm not a gear head and my terminology may not be correct, but Recently I noticed when I'm traveling between 40 - 50 MPH with my foot off the accelerator pedal and then accelerating, the vehicle (engine) feels like it is missing, but then I took it to a garage who placed it on the computer and nothing appeared to be wrong. Then a friend was riding with me and the vehicle "did it", he said that it could be the transmission. He called a friend (mechanic) who said that the 2006 has had some transmission wiring problems. When I think of transmissions, I don't think of wiring...??? Has anyone heard of this and is it a shop repair or can I do myself?
Thank you for your comments.
#570 of 607 1994 F150 automatic transmission slipping
Mar 17, 2012 (3:45 pm)
I have a 1994 F150 2wd 5.0 302 automatic transmission. Just replaced the tr switch (neutral safety switch) because I thought that was the issue however the problem is still there. Starts fine idles at about 1000 rpm some days you can put her in drive and off she goes she will shift roughly but she shifts, other days (or later that day) i put her in drive and she wont shift out of second. there are no determining factors as to why its slipping or why it will slip but I can be driving along at 40 to 50 mph and she will slip right out of gear and go into first, the rpm jump from 600 or 1000 to 3000. I put lucas transmission stuff in it that said it helps with slipping and seals any leaks but that was before I changed the tr switch. Any suggestion or experience in the matter would be greatly appreciated as I don't think I can afford to take her to the shop and if I can fix it myself I would rather do that.

I just experienced like a miss firing with my 2006 f250, had a turbine speed sensor error and replaced, kept with the tow haul lite blinking and miss firing so the wire harness was replaced also replaced. Hope this was it, I'm getting the truck today.
#572 of 607 Ford F150 trans issues
May 09, 2012 (2:06 pm)
Good afternoon. I have an 06 F150 5.4 Triton Lariat 4x4 crew cab. Between 40-50 MPH the truck bumps or bounces. If I accelerate the truck hesitates then takes off, and the bouncing goes away. Also, if I let off the gas peddle, it goes away too. The check engine light isnt on. I had the transmission flushed at 100K, I now have 150K, on the truck. It doesnt sound good but other than that, the truck runs excellent. I have heard of some wiring issues but i can't confirm. Thank you for all your help.

This exact problem was making me crazy. I was sure I was into another transmission. It was simple: a new set of plugs. Seriously, I had an error message for a coil, but it was fine. The plugs were totally messed up. They are wicked hard to remove once they are this old and will separate. You'll need a special Ford tool to remove the part that separates. It's $120, and trust me you'll need it. IT'S NOT THE TRANNY! IT'S A STUPID SPARK PLUG SHORT!

Got to love the Internet. I came looking for a solution and your post exactly matches my problem. Year/body/mileage/speed spot on. Did replacing the plugs work for you?

I have not done anything yet. I kind of know how to avoid making it happen now. I have a little ove 90,000 miles so I will probably just have the plugs done this summer and see if that fixes it.

Just tuned the truck up and that's all that it needed. It is running like new!
