This is usually due to a connector terminal that is loose in the connector. It might even be the connector right on the back of the cluster. The female end of the connector has terminals that the pins on the female side slip into. When the terminals are not set in the connector, they slip back causing an intermittent connection.

check engine light on?

Ignition switch is the culprit. On Fords for high speed blower motor is direct whereas the lower speeds go through the ignition switch. If there is an issue with the switch the blower will only work at high speed. A schematic will confirm that.

Was the fuel level sensor checked? U may have a vacuum leak in the emissions control system if sensor is good. (poss bad gas cap) Good luck. Scan for live readings while the car is running if u can. Scanner needed

Ford engineers should be shot for this. You can buy the special tool shown below. Use it to lift the strut and knuckle up enough to get the ball joint on. Or, loosen the engine cradle bolts on that side and drop the cradle down enough to bet the ball joint stud into the control arm. Ford engineers should be shot for this bad design.

You visually checked for spark and there was none? #3 and #4 show to be on same coil, each coil fires two plugs. Battery has a full charge? The red wire at coil pack is voltage, it has good voltage? Any applicable trouble codes?
The yellow wires with different tracer colors are grounds controlled by the pcm, one ground for each coil. Did you check voltage on ground wire engine cranking? I can't rule out a faulty coil driver in pcm. It's possible your old coil pack damaged the coil driver in pcm? If that is the problem, hope it didn't hurt the new coil pack.

You have a loss of vacuum from the engine, first check under the hood and make sure the vacuum storage tank is not damaged and leaking and it has vacuum in it when the engine is running. If all that is ok then move on to the line that goes inside the truck and verify it has vacuum.

I would go with the vacuum sensor because vacuum changes when giving it more pedal. Temperature should not vary immediately .

Inside gas tank. Need to drop tank. You also need a special tool to release sending unit from fuel lines. I would get the whole unit not just the pump.

You may have a idler or pulley that is getting a bad bearing and throwing the belt. The belt can stretch some but if they do most will squeak or not cool the engine and you will see the engine temp go up when it is slipping and then when it catches the temp will go back down.
