im actually having this same problem with my 5.0 lately. im working on it tomarrow to figure it out but i think its either the injectors or maybe a bad plugs. but it has 2 new coilpacks and wires are brand new. and the ruff idle/hesitation used to only happen every once in a while but its now happening alot. so im slighty lost but im hoping to figure it out at my buddys shop tomarrow

When I had my misfires, I took it to our mechanic who had a cleaner that the public can't buy. Worked great on my working injectors, but my misfires were due to the coil on the injector failing and an injecter sticking closed. I replaced both myself, not that hard of a fix with a Haynes or Chilton manual, just a lot of time.
