You should do a full tune up on any "new" used car purchase.
Could be a simple as a bad misfire from worn plugs or a clogged fuel filter.

Yeah i am going to do a tune up on the car first before i do anything else to the car and i looked at the coil pack and it looked like it had a small crack on the side of the coil pack but i don't know if that would cause a problem or not lol

Yes, a cracked coil will cause a problem.

Find a Motorcraft replacement.

Any other brand is a waste of money.

i changed the pvc valve and the spark plugs and its not acting up no more so i guess it was a bad spark plug and i am going buy a new coil pack since the other one i have has a small crack in it i was thinking of getting a msd coil pack or is that a waste of money the motorcraft one is $105 and i can get the msd coil pack for $70.00 lol
