Both wet and dry. Had some stuff come up today and was unable to spend any time on the car. The supposed mechanic and his friend showed up this morning, cleared the limp mode, and was able to get the car to the local autozone ~10 mi up the road for a scan. From what I heard, there are coil issues and an O2 sensor issue. Their recommendation was to replace all 6 coils and at least the faulty O2 sensor. Then they left. Sux. Guess I will have to do this job myself, despite the lack of experience in doing this sort of thing. Good learning experience for me I guess!! Thanks for all the advice !

Ford Duratec COP systems are NOTORIOUS for cracked coil boots allowing the coil voltage to jump to the cylinder head, creating bad misfire conditions. Make sure when you're swapping coils (the boots might even come apart when trying to remove them) that much attention is paid to the coil boot condition. It might need 0 coils and 3-6 new boots to run well.
