Question: Why does my truck cut out

I have a 2007 ford f150 with 5.4 Triton. I am having trouble with the engine cutting out when I slowly increase speed. If I gun it instead of slowly increasing speed it doesn't do it. I do not have a check engine light and also doesn't have any error codes.

I would make sure all your filters have been changed. The I would have the fuel pressure and back pressure in the exhaust checked. If both of them are ok I would have the drive by wire system checked. It cold be sticking. The last thing could be you coils for the spark plugs. I would have them tested. Not many shops have the tool to do it. But all the Ford dealerships do.
