Your CPS (Camshaft Position Sensor) probably crapped out. There was an open recall on them. You could check with Ford and have them run your VIN# to see if your truck is affected.

Sounds to me like it's bad again. If they didn't get the gap right, that can cause it to fail prematurely.

Don't even know if they carry them. Ford should take care of it for you since they did it 6 months ago. Only thing is, you are without your truck.
