I began doing research, posting threads on here, and finally taking video of the noise. Here's a link. I bet yours sounds just like mine did. Anyways, the shaking got so violent and so frequent that it was happening along every take off. And the grinding blender sounding noise happened every single time I drove the car. Finally, my dealer listened and took the car in. My clutch was replaced (not with ease might i add) and though I have a horrible smelling car... I will say it drives smoothly! (Thus far) Take my story to your dealer... I know they don't wanna hear it but this is a problem Ford knows about and there is a fix.
My dealership would like to know who repaired your car so that they can talk to them and find out the fix....Thank you. It's Bob Allen Ford in Overland Park, KS It would be most helpful if you could provide to them who helped you.
Thank you.
