    Yes it is normal, are all the wires at the battery clean with no corrosion? Has the alternator been tested for proper operation??

You have O2 Sensor Codes

I believe you have a bad fuel pump,
thus low pressure and the O2 Sensors,
set a lean fault code

Check fuel pressure at the rail when you turn
the key to start or it is running

Changing spark plugs is something that
never has to be done to find out what issues
you have.
You could throw away a couple and it should start

Also NO Parts EVER get Changed until
TESTED and found to be bad

Trouble starting & dies soon after starting


What about the fuel filter in the frame? Did the Ford mechanic check it?
Is a diesel? If that is the case, it could be the electric cellanoid switch in the injector pump. But usually it would start and stop it would just shut down with that.
