It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

I would take the truck to an autoparts store and have the fault codes retrieved from the computer. Most stores will do the scan for free. I would lean toward a faulty throttle position sensor, but that's just speculation. The fault codes should narrow the problem down. Hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: F150 2003 5.4L Vibration throughout truck with acceleration

When you say "throughout" that would indicate that it is coming from the rear of the truck..

There could be a number things causing this..

It could be a bad tire or a broken belt on a tire..
A test for this is - roll along at 3 miles per hour.. If you feel a wobble - that is probably a broken belt in a tire..
Or maybe even a bent axle..

It could be a bad universal in the drive shaft..

It could be a broken shock/strut or mount or both..

Best of luck !

Check your TPS Throttle positioning sensor. Sounds like it has a dead spot in it or it is failing. May also be a wiring harness issue or loose connection at TPS too! If its intermittent then it will soon go out completely. It should be located on your fuel pedal. Remove it and check it with an ohm meter. Check resistance all the way thru from 0-100 percent. When it is not working it should do nothing and show no resistance. When it is working the resistance value will increase and or decrease as you turn the sensor.

Ring and pinion noise for sure,yes. Check for play right at the yoke where the drive shaft goes in.
I've seen a few fords where the pinion nut was loose and after re torquing they lasted another 100,000

2004 ford escape 128,000 miles-runs fine for approx 50 miles then spits and sputters. i reset battery, meaning bring temp to normal, run for 1 min, turn on ac for 1 min, then drive 10 miles and all is...


Try changing the inline fuel filter. It may be plugging up with gunk from the tank when you accelerate after running. If the gunk is settling in the lower part of the inline filter, this allows some fuel to flow, but when you accelerate or drive for an extended period, the gunk gets shoved against the output end blocking fuel flow. It also could be picking up some water in your tank, if the tank is allowed to be low on fuel.

I have a 1985 chevy s10 pickup 2.8 liter,2wd,automatic,w/2 barrel carbuerated motor.it starts rite up..but it idles rough,but when in park if i accelerate it smoothes out and sounds fine..revs rite...


You should probably fix the cable for the second barrel--maybe you can make one with a coat hanger or similar item.

It seems to me that you may also have a miss. Have you checked plugs and wires? How about the timing?

More Questions--please reply.

Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).
