Also you can have a cylinder contribution test performed with a scanner, most likely an ignition coil or coils failing.

From the description it sounds like you have a type-a ignition misfire, the threshold for setting dtcs on older fords is broader so they won't set a code as fast as a newer ford. You'll need to take it to a shop that has a power balance test capability that will show exactly which cylinder is misfiring to get an accurate diag.
