Change plugs and wires to start, and then it may still be a coil pack that has gone bad.
Or, it's a plugged fuel injector to one of the cylinders.

Is there a service engine soon light on?

There are a few reasons this could happen. I would first check that you plug wires are on well. If they are I would check the plugs and replace if needed. let me know if that helps, if not let me know and I'll tell you a few other things to check

SOURCE: Engine skips when idling

Run some injection cleaner through it see if it gets better. You may have an injector stuck open and it is loading the engine up until it can't take it any more.

Does you f 150 have electronic throttle control ? An does it have Variable Cam Timing (VCT) - if it does have Variable Cam Timing (VCT) it doesn't have an EGR valve ! What type scan tool did you use to pull the code with ? My FORD factory service information does not show that code for A 2004 F - 150 5.4 L 3 valve engine !

Low compression on cylinder 1 bad skip if you idle it up the skip will go away and also it runs fine while driving


If there is low compression in one cylinder the fault wil be shown more at IDLING as the engine will not be smooth. So there will be reduced power and it might also skip.
In th long run you will have reduced power of the engine even as the engine will not show on higher RPM and thus the fuel useage will be more.
It will be good to check out and estimate to get the compression corrected to all cylinders.

At a steady speed motor skips pulls good on hills seems get worse every day


is this skip like a miss does it run rough at an idle try changing the plugs and wires cap and rotor and see if this helps also run a good fuel system treatment through the vehicles intake and gas tank and clean it out could have a lot of carbon build up in the engine this usually helps with performance issues.
