There is a few things I can think of that would cause this, your fuel pump is starting to go, try changing your fuel filter first and see what happens. If no luck test you pump pressure at low and high RPMS. Check your coil pack and wires, cam sensor and also O2 sensors


Check the fuel pressure at the injector rail. (between 2.5 and 3.0 Bars) If you have fitted the NGK spark plugs, Try the Motorcraft available from the Ford Dealer parts department. It could also be the ignition coil, in this case fit a genuine Ford coil pack available through you local Ford Parts department
