Did you run a code test on it? Have you ever done a tune-up on it? Ford recommends a tune-up on those every 30k miles because of the chitty spark plugs, they are two piece and like to break off. Snapon makes an excellent tool to get them out but it is maybe a 3 hour process just getting the spark plugs out. That will definately help your problem and maybe check compression for a bad headgasket? Ford's aluminum 5.4 heads suck.
