first thing is the engine light on?
these cars had problems with the on plug ign coils and if this is a misfire the comp will tell you which cyl is the problem.

Sounds like your speed sensor (odometer sensor) is failing or failed. This sensor is found on the tranny. Best to consult your local dealership.

It's hard to believe that a company we all support (and used to love) would leave us in the dust and turn it back on us. It is so obvious they have a speedo cluster defect and expect us to pay for their incompetence!!!!
And they actually want us, the people they are burning of hard earned dollars, to bail them out!!!
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you dig, you will find unimaginable amounts of people with this same problem on the internet and they know it.
Shame on them, and on us, if we give them another chance to do it to us again. They sit in their offices of gold and wonder why the empire is failing, dah!!! You can only rip people off for so long before it will bite you back.
They expect to have a long term business with short term business pricipals, dah again!!!
If you have a problem as I do, call 1-866-0405 or log on to www.speedometersettlement.com for info regarding your bogus speedo.
Is america producing anything of quality anymore?

From what you are describing it appears like an engine misfire.
These trucks are notorious for bad ignition coils.
They don't always set a code either, it depends on several factors.
To check these out in my shop there is a mode in our scan tool called "mode 6". This allows us to look at certain engine data parameters to look at misfire to locate the offending cylinder(s).
Unfortunately without the use of a scan tool you will not be able to see this.
It may be in your best interests to get a shop to look at this for you and verify the bad cylinder.
I have had issues with aftermarket coils and use Ford originals exclusively now. They have also reduced the price of them, good thing too because we go through many.
Might be an opportune time to replace spark plugs as well. worn spark plugs can accelerate coil failure as a worn plug takes more energy to fire.
Thank you for using FixYa !
