Bucking after running for 100miles +

Have 99 f-250 with 7.3 powerstroke with 220k miles. I use it for a regular trip of 200 miles and after 100+miles the truck starts bucking. This usally happens after stop at red light and continues until I get to destination. After I get home from the trip the next day it runs fine after it cools off. The check engine light flashes when this happening. I have had it back to Ford dealer three times. Ford has had replaced the A C sensor asy and dropped the fuel tank to replace sock in tank. After these repairs it is still doing the same thing. Any help would be great.

did they replace the fuel tank when they replaced the sock? ive seen a lot of trucks come in where the inside of the fuel tank rusts out and clogs up the fuel pump pickup screen, causing a gradual loss of fuel pressure. When you let the vehicle sit, the rust/contaminates settle back down in the tank and clear up the fuel pump pickup screen. Not sure if this is your problem but it has the same symptoms.
