have you changed your CPS (cam position sensor)? if not, they are a few bucks at the Ford dealer.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

they only replace the black ones. If its grey they wont do it free.
They charge 28 bucks approx for on if you buy it. I just said to heck with it. I did not want to wait or drop my truck off. I went and bought one. I ept the old for a spare.
