Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
The vibrating doesn't start until I accelerating to about 40 or 45 mph and keeps vibrating until it reaches around 70mph.it accelerates fine,there isn't any pulling anywhere that I can tell the only thing that other than the vibrating is the engine started making a slightly different sound when accelerating and when its idling but the sound is barely noticeable
Could be a engine mount, any engine setting out of line will add more load to the engine mount movement, air leak in manifold, bad spark. it could als be something as simple as a thrown wheel balance or the balance on drive shaft balancer is out of sync, or missing.

Well, kind of short on description, issues typical in this complaint are misfiring and U joints.
To emininate the engine, does the vibration happen on power braking, without the vehicle moving?

You should change trans & power steering fluids
every 30,000 miles on all vehicles,if you don't from
when the vehicle was new,you will have problems
Changing the trans fluid only restores the heat removal
properties,it does not fix a single thing, at all
The shift stratagy is determined by several things
Check that the TPS Sensor is working without worn
spots inside it.
No adjustments to make
You could have the sensors checked with a scanner
while driving it.
You have a delayed 1-2 shift
The are servos that apply bands etc,I think
in the end you will be pulling the trans to rebuild
it,as you will be chasing several possibilities, that I
believe will be hardened internal seals from time,
wear & mostly heat
You didn't mention mileage or other past issues
with the trans etc or if your the second owner
They don't normally go 11 years

I am sorry for the trouble.
This is a common problem. If you look at the reviews for this car, you would be surprised to know how many people are already faced the same issue. Unfortunately, there is no recall or lawsuit for the same.It would be tough to predict what might be the problem as there could be certain fuses and components that could cause this.
However, as you mentioned you could hear the ' hum ' or ' click ' noise, it tells us that the power is up there. If all other functions such power windows, rear vent windows and running board lights are fine, i would suspect the motor. However, if you want to make sure whether it's motor or not, you need to remove the colored trim ring around the opening of the moon roof on the headliner from the inside of the truck. You need to slightly pull down the back edge on the opening in the headliner and you could put a flash in there.If you have a rear DVD player, you need to remove it. Open the DVD screen and you could see 4 screws out there and you could gain access to the motor of the roof. The motor would have allen wrench hole around the center and that would help you to manually move the roof. You need to use the 5/32 allen wrench to turn the motor. Watch the glass and make sure that you are moving it open. You need to move the glass 1 - 2 inches and then see, if that operates the switch. If it does, then the motor is bad.If you use the allen wrench on the motor and try to move the glass and it does not move at all then the track is broken and the whole track has to be replaced.
Let me know,once done.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
