I'm got an '07 F150 FX4. At slower speeds it feels like it's hunting and with shift VERY hard at times. This has been a problem since new, but seems to be getting worse lately. I had an '04 and don't remember any such issue. It's only at slower speeds when I'm barely on the gas. I can stomp on it and it will shift through very smoothly. Same pulling a boat, no issues. Am I about to have some major issues, or should I not worry?

Had a similar problem with my 08; took it into the dealer, they updated the software in the transmission/control box - no more problems. Might give it a try - warranty issue

Thanks Jim, I'll try that. I've got about 60k on it, but I asked the dealer about it with about 20k and they said nothing was wrong, so maybe they'll do this to make up for it.

Do you keep O/D off when towing? <BR> <BR>I put one of these in my truck for towing and it made a huge difference. You can have 3 different programs. I have 87 trans, 87 Towing, and a 87 performance. You can program for larger tires, shifting, damn near anything and everything. <BR> <BR>Did you put larger tires on it? I went from 31's to 33's and I could notice a difference at about 45-50mph. With the programmer it's like a whole new truck. It comes with 3 stock tunes and you can pay for custom tunes. <BR> <BR><a href="http://dygytalworld.ehost-services139.com/php/Ford_F-Series_Gasoline_Vehicle.html" target="_blank">http://dygytalworld.ehost-services139.com/php/Ford_F-Series_Gasoline_Vehicle.html</a>

I do keep O/D off when towing. I am still with the stock 20". Did just change tires, but same size.

Oh, and I apologize about the grammar in the first post. Just looked at it and the first sentence is horrible!
