Sorry to post to such an old thread, not trying to beat a dead horse.

Ford released a TSB about this.
The Bulletin number is 00-24-8 on November 27,2000

Ford says to replace the coil and PCM (with one listed in the TSB).
If that doesn't work, reprogram the computer with their NGS Tester to run on 87 octane. Essentially just retarding the timing.
