Check your TPS Throttle positioning sensor. Sounds like it has a dead spot in it or it is failing. May also be a wiring harness issue or loose connection at TPS too! If its intermittent then it will soon go out completely. It should be located on your fuel pedal. Remove it and check it with an ohm meter. Check resistance all the way thru from 0-100 percent. When it is not working it should do nothing and show no resistance. When it is working the resistance value will increase and or decrease as you turn the sensor.

Hello, I remember reading about a bracket both the Throttle cable and the Cruise cable mounted to. Ford had to add a clip to secure the Cruise cable because the Cruise cable was rubbing the Throttle cable.
Next, Ask your Dealer about the Recall for a part called "Cam Phasers". I know that 2004-2008 Models with 4.6L and 5.4L engines were included. Your car only comes with a 4.6L engine. There is an Extended Warranty of 7 Years and I want to say 90,000 Miles. The Mileage amount keeps changing.
The "Cam Phasers" were used on the DOHC models. The older design uses 1 cam and would have a SOHC Emblem on the Engine. The delay and lack of pep can be caused by valve lag on the DOHC engines. The Phaser was suppose to auto-advance the valve timing but since there were 2 in each engine one bank could be set differently than the other, a terrible condition.
You might try to clean the MAF sensor in the air intake with Electronics cleaner. There is a switch on the Airhorn that has a TPS, throttle position sensor that may not be smoothly picking up your throttle changes. It is the switch attached to the Air Butterfly Plate. Beneath the Air Horn there is sometimes a groove under the Airhorn gasket. This feeds the EGR and makes a difference if it is clogged or clean.
About the only other things to check is a part called the "Idle Air Solenoid" which is the round cylinder object, it has a floating valve that can get dirty and responds to WD40 and to check for Vacuum leaks with a water mist spray or approved choke cleaner (safe for plastics and rubber" while the engine is running. The RPM changes when a leak is found.
I hope my solutions are helpful. You have a lot of new information to check. Would be interested in which solution cured your problem.
