Do all the 5.0L guys have the latest update from Ford? I do feel an ever so slight shudder when I'm close to shift points, but thats it. Having come from an Ecoboost condensation shudder, this feeling isn't 1/10th as noticeable. Having said that, I also feel some Ecoboost owners are feeling this same shudder and blaming it on the engine when it it just the programming/transmission/torque converter shudder than is felt across all the engines.

Like you said Longjt, if you have a 5.0L and THINK you have the shudder, get into an Ecoboost with the condensation problem and you'll quickly realize its not the same. But obviously if you're a 5.0L owner and have engine misfires showing, I''m sure the feeling would be similar to the Ecoboost engine misfires and would be related to some physical component in your powertrain.

After a download and call to Ford, I was told that there are several codes coming up. I was told there was a problem with the throttle body and the gasket. Once those are replaced, they have to drive it to "retrain" something. Anyway, it was all spanglish to me, but I will post up if it helped.
Ford replaced the throttle body on my EB 4k ago and the shudder is GONE (after 57k miles of it). Their theory was the throttle body is the common denominator between throttle position, fuel, air and computer.

Which shudder were you dealing with if you don't mind telling?

See post 1944 in this thread. He gives more details there. I'm surprised we haven't heard more of this fix from others yet (or at least attempts to try this).

Thanks. I remember reading that now. I agree with you

Most of what I had was the 55-60 mph shudder when lightly applying throttle. However, it would occur at 70 mph as well as 5-10 mph when under load and in a higher gear. At one point the tech detected miss fires in cylinder #5, but at that point Ford told the dealer to not attempt a repair---"engineering is investigating".

Was your shudder slight, or would your entire truck shake enough to make drinks almost spill if they were in the cup holder. Perhaps the throttle body is the common denominator for why people are experiencing a slight shudder across all of the engines.

Without a tsb# if we take our trucks in and say its the throttle body, they more than likely wont just change it. Even if it is the real culprit.

Ford Canada has installed an additional air deflector to force more air thru the intercooler seems to have fixed my issues.
