    Had my 2005 f150 in the shop a few months back, same problem, during cold weather had rough idling especially at red light, stop signs, etc. Today, I had to have it towed home....lost all power. It only has 45,000 miles

I had the same problem with my 05 F150. Actually, it started out to be just "rough Idling" for example, stopped at lights... stop signs..Then eventually, I was losing all gas while driving. I had it fixed today at Ford. It was the fuel pump driver module that had to be replaced. Its located underneath the spare tire on the bottom of the truck. Works fine now.. Hope this helps you....

Cutting out when you step on gas pedal hard. Rough idling.

Check the mass air flow sensor connection and clean the thin wires inside with a sensor cleaner and see if that helps.It usally does.
