Suspect Ice formed in fuel line or Carb/Injectors at the elevation you were at going up the mountain.

Would it be cold enough for ice?

I would guess not, but who knows. I know Loveland pass, 11991, is reporting 51 degrees F.

Do not ask question, put on the shopping duds and go.

Aaaamen, brother! Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Your rig has done you right but to each comes a season.

On the serious side.. I'm wondering if you might be using an after market air filter like a K&N. Those have been known to restrict air flow at elevation.

On a vehicle that old, check into the oxygen sensors too. On the return trip from picking up my previous TT, my previously-running-well Chevy Blazer fell flat on its face about 40 miles from home and it was an oxygen sensor. The sustained load greater than anything it had ever experienced before tipped it over the edge.

When I was flying from Eugene, Oregon to Kansas in a Cessna Titan 404, I was topping the Rocky Mts and lost my left engine when moisture in the wing tank froze into little balls of ice and stopped up the fuel line to the engine. Couldn't restart the engine till we were on the ground in Nampa, Idaho for two hours and had poured Iso. alcohol into the wing tank. It gets cold at 12,000 ft.
Anytime I haul the TT through high mountain regions, even if it's summer, I add Sea Foam to the fuel tank. Not taking that chance again. Ice can form in the carb mouth even if not below freezing. Pilots of small aircraft are taught to add carb heat [tee handle] when reducing the throttle for landing to keep ice from blocking air to the engine. Private Pilot 101.

I have had the Ford modular engine V8 coils cause misfire/rough at times and throw a code, but at other times, principally under acceleration, also cause a misfire without throwing a code, as it it so intermittent.
Also, I have seen the Ford plugs foul/blow by on the side, burning up the electrode, if they weren't torqued to spec when replaced. This will also cause the coil pack on that cylinder to fail. The symptoms are usually only under a load or acceleration while in overdrive.


Let us know what you find out...and/or enjoy the new truck shopping.
