Fix it or replace it.
It's funny that your name is deathtrap. That's exactly what OP's truck is

I'd get a ranger from down south with a blown engine, and swap over the motor and everything else.

Go to this site & report it: http://www.safercar.gov/
I've been doing a little research on this. I have the same problem u have. From what I have been reading this is a big problem with these trucks. Hopefully if they get enough complaints they will make Ford do something. Toyota had a recall for the same problems.
Oh and tell your friends
