Question 5.4 sohc fuel ignition prob

I have a problem with my stock 98 5.4 sohc. I was told it was a tune-up issue. I came across a thread that led me to this site. I am fairly uneducated regarding these motors. I changed all the plugs and a couple coils, it fixed the problem for about three weeks. My engine light comes on and off. The computer scan told me it is a O2 sensor was out, but was told that wouldn't cause it to shutter. When I pulled the plugs after one month they were a little black. It usually shutters around 45 mph. It does better when i keep the rpms above 2000(to do this i usually turn the o/d off. I have cosidered it being the air filter, fuel filter, O2 sensor, fuel pump or fuel injectors. The problem began when I was at the car wash and sprayed under the hood. THe engine was cold, so no damage there. It just cuts out at certain rpms when accelerating. I was also told that it could have got moisture under the boot.

Thanks for the help,
Trey

Re: 5.4 sohc fuel ignition prob

If you hosed off the motor, you got water in the spark plug holes which will cause the coils to arc to the head. This will require removing the coils and drying everything off, you may even have to replace the coil boots.
