Question about Cars & Trucks
It also has very low power when accelerator .is pushed. Ive since had it diagnosed and it came up with the airflow sensor.
These are prone to cylinder head failure.
Get it compression tested before you do anything else.
I'm guessing it's starting to use more water too?

You need to have the codes pulled and diagnoised. It could be the cam sensor, fuel pump, fuel filter, or the catalytic convertor as well as a combination. Have you cleaned your Mass air sensor?
Hope this helps;

Go get the codes ran at auto zone or advance auto parts they will do it for free. If the codes come up as a cylinder miss-fire then it is most likely a coil (being a ford). Write down which cylinder it is. I wouldn't replace any of the spark plugs , useless you have more than 100,000 miles. If you have to replace the spark plugs use BOSH double plautim or better. The cylinder placing is ( as your are looking at the front of the truck) passenger side front to back 1-2-3-4 driving side front to back 5-6-7-8. If you never seen a coil buy one so you know what you are looking for. The coil is held in by a 7mm bolt. Take the bolt out and replace the coil. Problem Solved. Estimated time 20 Mins with 60 dollars per coil.

I just got done with this same problem. Check a small looped vacuum hose just behind the mass air flow sensor which is attached to the air filter housing. the hose will be toward the plenom on the right side next to a blue connector. They have a tendency of getting soft.

It sounds as if you have a brake or c.v. joint problem. If you haven't checked your brakes check them first (cheapest to repair). Ifbrakes are fine c.v. joints are most likely the problem. When checking brakes if doing yourself check inner and outer pads as well as rotors for scoring. Good Luck.
