My 5 and 6 cylender are not firing on my 1997 f150

There can be several reasons. A lot of times people look at the spark side of the problem and forget that fuel injectors also must work. The firing signal comes from the crankshaft sensor, then both the spark and fuel get a signal to fire.

When 2 adjacent cylinders miss, it can be a head gasket or the coil pack. I see that this problem is 7 months old so you have probably fixed it.

1997 ford f150 just had egr valve replaced.. engine is hesitant and check engine light is on with error code 401.. whats the prob?

Everyone says to test out your DPFE sensor. This controls the flow of the egr. When the codes pull up, everyone thinks its the egr, but really its this little guy.
Take it by a shop and see if they can mess with the bugger. They usually run about $50+.
