Default How smooth is your engine?

hey guys, how smooth does your truck run? like when you are accelerating? i have a 2006 fx4 5.4 and it seems like its got a bit of a "roughness" upon accelerating.

yeah i feel like im going crazy. I swear my engine was smooth as glass a few months ago and now it just doesnt feel the same as it did, inless my head is really messing with me. I replaced all splark plugs, new throttle body, fuel injection flush all with dealer parts. Just doesnt seem as smooth as it once did

Clean the MAF sensor....that will cause an issue if it's dirty
