I suspect bad coil packs.There is one for each spark plug.There
have been service bulletins on them.The warranty on them
was extended through 100,000 miles.There have been some issues
with the #6 & 7 cylinders.My engine was eventually replaced.
Here's to hoping it's just the coil packs.Good luck!

I thought the 4.6L still used a single coil pack rather then COPs. Either way it does sound like a coil problem but could also be a clogged fuel filter or fuel pump.

I believe the engine was redesigned to address the overheating
in the 6 & 7 cylinders.Perhaps the coil configuration was changed
as well? I agree that it could fuel related but this has happened
to me with 6 coils.My has had the same problem with 4 coils
on her 5.4l expedition.

Abtrman and akirby- you were right on- coils and clogged fuel injector- you guys are awesome! The cost to replace some coils (and some spark plugs) and flush the system came out to $1,100 which I can afford. Can't wait to get my baby back purrin like a kitten. Thanks; I was relieved to hear it from the mechanic today because u gave me a heads up. Thank you again for the fast responses and you were dead on target.
