Sounds like it could be a cam position sensor.

Engine missing mainly between 45 and 55 mph


I'm going to assume you have the 3.4 V6 engine which uses direct ignition with a coil on each plug.
Could be ignition or fuel related.
A weak spark/coil will allow the engine to run on all 6 cylinders at idle but miss under load, especially when going into overdrive at 45 mph. Not enough spark to jump the gap.
Same thing with low fuel pressure or dirty injectors. Not enough fuel when the engine is working hard.
Usually when you get a hard miss you will get a trouble code for the cylinder that is not giving power.
Have you changed the fuel filter in the past 12 months ?

Try cleaning the groove under the Airhorn gasket. Then try it. A municipal mechanic who works on 4.6 engines in Police cars told me about the groove.

The TPS regulates spark and fuel, its not too expensive and wears continuously. A slow advance would make the engine stumble.

Thought of a fuel sample? You get same problems from bad fuel. Some "Octane Booster" might cure it until you can tank up with Premium. Good Luck

I have a 99 ford E350 15 pass van with the V10 gas engine with 120,000 miles and auto trans. The engine was missing at speeds above 45 MPH. I took it to a repair shop for a tune up. They changed the spark plugs and charged me $520.00. Well now it misses at idle to 55 MPH. They made it worst! I'll eat my losses and will not deal with the repair shop as they are giving me the run around. Can anyone help me before i get ripped off again. My last resort is the Ford dealer but they are the biggest rip off in the world.
Need help,
Harold
