auto trans problems in newer SOHC rangers?

My truck had always had a little "shutter" upon accelerating-took it to the dealer at 34k miles and they replaced the driveshaft-solved the problem just long enough to get me past 36k miles-the truck now has 58k-Just wondering if anyone experiences the same thing-other than that, Ive towed 5000lb boats and work trailers-truck did not like it though.....

my 05 does that.

its the shift accumulators in the trans, you should upgrade them after 60k once your trans has had a chance to settle. my cougar had the same issues, and it had 80k, and my dads truck did the same thing and it had 375k no rebuild. its a ford thing, keep the fluids up, dont neutral slam it and drive it like a truck, dont drive it soft
