Rough Idle

Yesterday on the way to my friend's house, the truck would occasionally start idling rough. It would start to vibrate, then as I started to drive, it wouldn't go all the way away until I turned the truck off sometimes. I looked under the hood and it kina looks like the fan is a little off-balance or maybe I'm just seing things. I don't really want to take it to the Dealership 'cause all the people in the parts department ar jerks and try to figure out how to gt out of fixing something. So does anyone have an idea as to what the problem could be?

It is, but last time I took it in for the Multi-switch going out, they tried to make me pay for it for some made up reason. I had to argue with them just to get them cover it under the warranty.

grow a pair and go to ford and raise some hell. You paid good money for the truck so you don't have to spin a wrench on it for a while. take advantage of the warranty.

That's honestly a good idea. Sounds like what I'll probably end up having to do.
