Assuming the plugs and wires have been changed. I would look at the bottom of the coil pack. They tend to crack and short out.
Or if it's got coil packs they will also crack and short out.

P0171 is system too lean bank 1, P0174 is too lean bank 2, and 302 is misfire bank 1. Look for vacuum leaks. If you don't find them, put a vacuum gage on it can check. The P0171 is almost always a vacuum leak. If not other possibilities are front O2 sensor is too old and should be replaced (if mileage is greater than 100k then replace). Try injector cleaner. Misfires are usually bad spark plugs, but could possibly be caused by insufficient fuel. I've never had a car of mine in bad enough shape to have that error.

po301 thru po306 all misfire codes cylinder 1-6 remove plugs and replace them..... set the plug gap first
i suggest u replace the wires also if they never been replaced all these misfire codes can set the others and one is for the oxygen sensor ( 02s or HO2S) CIRCUT MALFUNCTION do u know how to check wireing systems
do the tune up plugs (set gap) .052-.056 change the fuel filter also. clear the codes hows it run
this info is for 98 E-250 4.2Litre
what engine do u have 4.2L or 4.6L i know it is a v-6 by the codes

All are fuel related , as in running lean. I'd start by checking all vacuum lines for possible leak, then buy some spray cleaner for MAF sensor & give it a good spray or tuner spray from TV repair place or radio shack, is even better. Ford says not to (they'd rather sell new part) but it will work at least long enough to see if that's the problem before you replace a bunch of parts.
