Mine did the same thing only after a few months of owning it. My buddy retired from the local Ford dealership and had me bring it in to them (under the books) to have it tested. The #6 injector went out on it. I bought another injector and replaced it. Now the truck runs like the day I bought it.... First time I ever did an injector, just had to find some info on the net on the replacement process.....
