Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have. 2007 f150, every so often when I start it, the
truck will shake and sputter like it wants to die, but

If it only does it after is warmed up, check oil pressure with a manual gage and monitor pressure drop as engine wams up. There's a phaser system that adjusts timing automatically and requires a minimum amount of pressure to operate the solenoids

If it does it even when cold, clean MAF sensor
