check for a cracked manifold or cracked flex section at the manifold
it is under load so it is not a vacuum leak as the vacuum is low under acceleration and high under deceleration or idle
indicates a gas leak or possible blockage from failed cat converter

Tune-up current? Spark plugs, ignition wires or coils, coil pack can cause misfires. Is the Check Engine or Service Engine soon light on? If so, get it checked out. Most Auto Parts stores will do this for FREE. Good luck/

the clpicking is the compressor for the a/c. If you turn your steering wheel left or right does the key come out? When did you have a tune up?

Do a throttle body cleaning and that should help with the idle. Cleaning the throttle body will also clean out the tabv (throttle body air bypass valve)valve which controls the idle.

There is not way to hotwire this.

Yes. The switch is usually located around the passengers kickpanel. There should be an access hole to press the button on the switch. Sometimes the part is just above the carpet and sometimes you have to remove the kickpanel. If you are unable to find this switch on the passengers side,then look on the drivers side kickpanel.

Under the hood is a Powerbox. The shutoff switch (inertia switch) gets its power from the Fuel pump Relay after the Ignition is turned on. If resetting the shutoff switch does not help, your fuel pump Relay may be bad. On some Ford models, the horn Relay is the same Relay used for the fuel pump. This would allow you to swap and test before buying a new Relay.

Its possible the cd is warped after being left in the player for an extended time or with heat. Try holding both the power and eject buttons down (with key on) to see if there is a forceful eject feature. If that doesnt work, get a strong flashlight shining in the opening and use a credit card to help coax the cd out of the slot while you press eject. Its possible that some double sided tape applied to the end of the credit card may help "grab" the cd as well.

This is probably a bad TCM module that has a recall on it. Ford extended the warranty on this to 10yrs/150k miles so you should have no trouble getting a dealer to fix it for free if you are under the mileage limit.

The issue are the phasers. Check oil pressure with a manual pressure gauge when cold and see if pressure drops after it heats up to normal operating temperature. Phasers work with oil pressure if the pressure is low, they can't adjust the timing and it starts to miss, the reason it gets better when you rev it up it's because the oil pressure goes up and it's able to adjust the timing.

If you have the correct voltage going to the coils, I would be looking at the grounds.
