Most common causes are plugs & wires. The V-6 engines are particularly picky about plugs & wires. Double platinum Autolite APP764 plugs work very well. Wires are especially troublesome, try stock Motorcraft replacements (which are excellent wires) or Autolite Professional series. Pricey, but worth every penny on these Duratec engines.
The I-4 is less sensitive to wires, but demands top of the line plugs. Again, Autolite double platinum plugs for the Zetec application are proven.AnswerCould be a bad spark plug or spark plug wire. Could be a bad timing chain or belt or a bad distributor. I would start with a tune up.
