you probably have a vacuum leak. check all your hoses pcv hose for sure. it means the engine is seeing too much air with the fuel.

Most likely what has happened is that when the thermostat went out the engine over heated and the seal of the valve gaskets to the plastic valve covers got warped and you ahve oil the has dumped into the coil pack area and it has caused 1 or more of the coil packs to go bad as solution #1 has explained. get the gaskets replaced, it sounds like your husband is handy. Its not a difficult procedure just a little time consuming. research the coil packs because at the dealership they are very expensive. People have had alot of good luck buying them on ebay.

I have a 2004 and all the service manuals. I have never worked on this type engine,although I have been at it for 45 years,some professional,when I owned a shop. That said, I will try to answer a specific question, if I can find it for you. Short of you buying all the manuals I have or mailing you mine.
I'am looking at the Workshop Manual-it has three locations on the 3.9L, two on disassembly and one on installation. Nice pictures,and necessary stuff,but near useless. Several hundred dollars for these. Got to have them,but not helping you or anyone else.
It looks like you need to have a tool to lock the flywheel in place. eg. one of the holes the CKP Sensors scans. It's called an ignition pulse wheel. One hole is special. Turn crank 45 degrees ATDC,the crank keyway will be at 6 o'clock,install tool
Also,a tool to hold the flats on the cams, to the top
If you don't have the cam sprockets and chain on.from your head service shop,more tools.
Then you have several locking pins,like dowel pins to hold everything,while you struggle with the chain tensioners,again ,more pins
That's a start.

First- to drain ,you can reach the drain valve,from the pass side,if you lay on the ground and reach up to the radiator. You do not even have to raise the vehicle up
Second- mix Yellow GO5 Coolant about 50/50 or 60/40. Do not use Green in a Ford or Orange GM
To Fill- Remove the front two plastic screw type buttons,from the engine cover
-Remove the cover
The radiator cap is on the front of engine,on top,it is plastic
Remove cap and that is your fill point
Run engine to warm and get thermostat open,as you would with any vehicle
Top off coolant,replace cap
VERY IMPORTANT-next to the Power Brake Booster,and just under it,is a BLEEDER HOSE;to let air out of system. Turn screw slot ,only a little,DO NOT REMOVE SCREW. When coolant runs out close.
Fill-Degas Bottle,to full line,with coolant.
Check the next couple days on resevoir level ( Degas Bottle)

Your best ,to cut the old belt,to remove.
You can use a long handle 1/2" drive ratchet, on the belt tensioner.
The only pic is in the shop manual.
Wear long sleeves and arm protector sleeves on top. the fan housing is sharp and a tight fit. You will be there a couple hours.
Draw a picture before you start, and you won't need a diagram
