SOURCE: 2003 Ford Crown Vic Misfire
milage on this shouldn't matter, the light being on is probly just stuck, however you maay wanna check to be sure the brakes aint hangin up a little,
Also the surging can be causeed by the fuel pump goin out, may not be the case but something to look for, it will show up as random misfires as well, maybe try a good fuel addative, (could have a little water in it, check the fuel filter as well, alot of cars now days have a charcol filter and when they go bad they can be a issue, Pick up tube could also have a hole in it, the fuel pumpo on theese cars should be in the tank and are not fun to replace,
hope one of theese suggestions helps, there are many thing that can cause the problem your describing

It could be carbon deposits on valve seats keeping valves from totally closing. You can try getting you a can of motorcraft PM3 top end engine cleaner and get engine up to operating temp then remove one of the small vacuum lines from the intake and draw the contents of the can slowly into the engine.After you have drawn in the contents shut engine off and let it soak for about 45 minutes then crank it back up and let it run until it clears. Now it will smoke like a forrest fire while you are doing this so don't be alarmed,just tell the neighbors you are spraying for mosqitos.This may cure the problem. If not you may be looking at a valve job.
This can be verified with a compression test if this is what is causing it.

first cylinder 4 is the last on the passenger side . first pull the coil out and check if there is water where the plug is. if there is take the water out and dry up the coil. if you find water you got a crack manifold or a bad intake manifold gasket. if there is no water replace the coil. good luck
