One possibility is bad gas. Did you fill up the tank when you went to the station? Check the EVAP on your vehicle. Later model Fords instructions tell the owner NOT TO fill the tank after the pumps clicks off the first time. If you force fill the tank you pump raw gasoline into the canister and vapor lines which can cause the problem.

Is your check engine light on ?
