hey thanks for bringing me up to speed. ive been working on many other problems but with your great explanation i remember.
we need to check the compression on that cyl. and compare it to the compression on 2 other cylinders your choice.
but before you do this get a can of carb cleaner . and with the car idling spray around the intake manifold in the area of #6 cyl. what we are looking for is a small vacuum leak that would also act like this. with the engine idling and spraying around the intake the engines idle sould not change and if it does when you spray you have an intake leaking.
let me know how it turns out.

I had a problem with a chevy with random misffires on all cylinders. It was the computer. Fords have very few problems with there computers. Does the check engine come on? Maybe have it scanned.

i would check the fuel pressure first if it is in the good ranges then your pump is good. have you checked your spark plugs and wires? if not i would, if bad replace. otherwise i would have the ignition coils checked to find out if they are working correctly. that is all i can think of. good luck

check to see if the oil cap is on tight,it wont run well if it is off or not tight...if it smells of strong gas fumes then replace the fuel regulator,the catalytic converters could be plugged,let it warm up as much as you can and use an infrared thermometor with the laser light(you can get at Home Depot for about $30.00)and check the temperature of the converters by aiming it at it and the temperature should be no more than 1500 degrees...or pull the distributor cap off and inspect for cracks and corosion..

most likely the idler pulley
remove the drive belt
there is a pulley just below the alternator that's the idler pulley
you may be able to spin the pulley and hear the noise if not
remove the pulley 13mm or 15mm bolt after u remove spin the pulley on you finger there will be a roughness or a grinding noise
replace the pulley
hope this helps
