How long since you replaced the fuel filter/drained the water sep?

The lever next to the fuel bowl is the water separator, and if you had a ton of water in there it could make it act up. If you just changed the fuel filter, then I would rule that out as your issue.

I agree with the comment about changing out the camshaft position sensor. They can fail intermittently and cause that sort of behavior.

Has your truck been in for the recall? I'd stop by a dealer and check. Could be a free fix for you, I think they still honor it.

CPS thats what my truck does and it was the CPS also does it when it rains alot for me any how lol. Its a cheap fix and ford has a recall on it so you can get it up to the dealer and they fix for free.

Some people are like slinkies they are completely useless but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a set of stairs
