Can you better define the feeling you get when it "just acts like fuel starvation or water in fuel to me" I believe then I will be able to pinpoint this.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
when i get it to run normal it runs good for maybe 30 seconds--then rpms drop off --and pumping gas pedal does nothing---it just goes to low idel like maybe 300 rpms and rough like it has water in fuel--turn off and restart aprox 4 or 5 times then it acts normal for about 30 seconds again--then same thing

I suggest you start by checking your fuel pressure and changing the fuel filter. your pressure should be 28psi minimum while running. You check the pressure by hooking up a gauge and hose to the test port on the fuel injector rail. I also suggest you purge some fuel, at least a quart into a glass jar to have a sample to check for contamination.

 

if everything checks out with the fuel then I suggest you clean the throttle body and reset the PCM. Disconnect the air intake tube and remove the air filter housing. Now have a helper with the key on hold full throttle while you clean the throttle body with a tooth brush and brake cleaner. The spray clean the MAF sensor as well. Reassemble and start the truck and let it run for 1 minute. Then remove the negative battery cable for 10 minutes to reset the computer.

 

If the results are still not good then its time to install new motorcraft plugs since your past due. If results persist, then its time to get it checked with a scan tool.
