Throwing multiple codes please help!

well once again my new trucks causing me grief...pulled up at a stop light..and the truck just started idleing like ****......it drives fine...but anytime it comes to a idle..it sounds like a diesel truck sitting there
Heres the codes the scanner pulled...
My trucks a 2003 2.3l Duratec 5 speed stock...105k miles
fresh plugs and wires 5k ago,
P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
P0301 Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected
P0316 Serious misfire in first 1,000 engine revolutions
P2196 o2 stack 1 lean
Im thinking Origional coil packs taking a crap?
Bad vaccum or air leak somewhere that I cant find with a can of carb cleaner.....
Or head gasket.....BUT ...my oils clean as can be...so...any ideas...all my electrical connections are good ive already checked that...

It can do that? wow glad i replaced mine. Also don't be so sure that ford would have charged you more. When I was shopping around for shops to change my timing belt Ford offered me the cheapest quote. I ended up replacing it myself but the mom and pop mechanics charged much more (150 to 200$ more) than ford did.

I never understood why dealers screw over people, word of mouth can kill a dealer if you screw enough people over. I love my dealer, great people working in the service area, good rates and they stand behind their work, and they Manager is there 6 days a week and talks to everyone.
