plz help 5.4 powering out

all of the sudden today my f 250 just started missing and dieing on the side of the road, the more gas you gave it the worse it got,like it was flooding it self out, it would idle fine but when you go to pull away it just shit the bed .... so i shut it off for a secong to look under the hood then it was fine, for about 5 miles then start the dieing again, so i limped it home just by shuting it off and startin it again....so once i was home i figured it was a spark issue,pulled the plugs and there fine,so checked the air filter...also fine so im thinkin mabey coil packs???how would i go about checkin them an electrical meater? what are they supsto put out?what is the gap supsto be on the plug? or am i even looking in the right spot? the fact that shutin it off for 2 seconds then restarting it seems like its reseting something...any comments here from the professionals??

im not a pro or anything but i dont think its the ignition it sounds to me that you got a fuel problem try replacing the fuel filter that should work

Re: plz help 5.4 powering out

I'd start with changing the fuel filter and like XxFordForever said, go to AutoZone and see what codes they might pull. While their, get a can of MAF cleaner and clean the MAF.
