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

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.

mine was doing that and just change out the CPS and that should solve your problem a very easy fix it is either 8 or 10 mm
