My 04 is plastic I think by the way it sounds but I cant see it. It is wrapped in a heat shield and inside a steel skid plate type container. from what I can see. If that helps any.Thanks, appreciate itl
Steel tanks in pickups/vans have a lining that tends to come off, various causes blamed, with Ford denying responsibility. There is a TSB and a class action lawsuit about it. Fuel differences, additives, etc have been blamed. Plugs up the pump, filters etc. My Excursion has just developed similar symptoms and shop suggested this as possible cause (not looked at it or confirmed). With a plastic tank is likely the fuel pump and some injectors are the problem (filters changed 3 weeks ago but 6500 mile road trip since).
