Need more information (such as engine size) to tell you why. Experience is anyone of them can misfire but Fords of that vintage sometimes have problems with cooling leaks on that hole from heater hose I had exact same problem on my '99. Leak on #4 plug caused damage to the coil. Changed hose and coil. Coil very easy to replace. My brothers 98 F150 had the same problem, had to change the intake gaskets. All four corners of the intake was leaking. Took about 4 hours to repair. His was a 4.6 motor.

Your PCM is detecting a misfire with in the first 1000 revolutions of engine start up. This code is usually but not always accompanied by a cylinder specific misfire code.

In general (very loosely) a misfire can be a bad plug, wire or coil.

16 The 1998 is an 8 cylinder engine. Each cylinder has two lifters. One lifter is for the intake and one lifter is for the exhaust.

No, 97-03 F150's have a 5x135 lug pattern.

If your check engine light blinks with the engine running it means that a misfire has been detected . Your F150 needs to be scanned for trouble codes in order to diagnose which cylinder or cylinders are misfiring and then repaired
