I suggest having an injector contribution test done first.

You don't say what engine you have is it the 6.0 or the 7.3L.

If it is the 7.3L it could just be a bad uvc ( under valve cover ) wiring harness. Or at least a bad connection at one of the injectors. That is what I would be looking at first.

If it is the 6.0L I don't know much about them so some one else will chime in shortly and help you out if it is the 6.0L

If I remember correctly #1 is the first one on the passenger side. I believe #4 is on the passenger side far back by the firewall.

i have the 7.3 engine, if the 6.0 has the same numbering, then #4 is driver side second cylinder from the front.

Is that really the order on our 7.3s/6.0s?

Unless the Diesels are different, just about all Fords I know of use the 1-2-3-4 starting from front to back on the passenger side, then 5-6-7-8 front-back on the drivers side. That pattern you mentioned reminds me of GM numbering. Obviously our engines aren't made by Ford, but I figured they stuck with the same number pattern for the cylinders.

If its intermittant, and you have an early 6.0, i would study the pictures in this link before doing any further troublshooting. Any one with an early 6.0 cound save themselves a lot of unneeded grief if they did a wiring chafe check on their 6.0 ,for that matter. Pay special attention to the second picture.
