Question about 2006 Ford E-150 Chateau
Skips and jerks during accellaration
Read about "Cam Phasers" in Ford applications. There are 2 identical parts on each side of the motor. They are independent but are suppose to work exactly the same. When they get out of sync, one side has different timing than the other.
This throws off fuel ratios and the O2 sensors on each side of the motor send conflicting signals. This is why your engine is running like it does. The valve timing is all messed up.
Have a knowledgeable mechanic listen to your engine. There is no Code for this problem. I doubt if a scanner could tell you much.

pull the exhaust off and see if it runs better, if it does it needs catylitic converters- could also have bad fuel injectors.
