Thats not a lot of info. It shakes when braking? Accelerating? Steady throttle state? At all speeds?

Any check engine lights?

Unhappy

it hesitates and shakes under steady throttle. It has a 5.4 engine. It started yesterday driving down the road steady speed and the vehicle began vibrating and it felt like the engine was choking. The engine didn't cut out and it was intermittent. We went out today, it did the same thing. If you need more info, tell me exactly what you need.

Well...no Expert...but normally, on a newer vehicle, if it's an engine or tranny issue you will get warning lights.

Might look at the simple things....drive shaft? Maybe pull the ABS fuse to eliminate a brake issue.

Our mechanic Pro's aren't normally here on weekends...might be a day or 2.

When it is doing this, slip it into neutral and take your foot off the accelerator and see if the problem still occurs.

I once had a car shaking and it turned out to be a front out of round tire of all things!
