Change the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure to the injector rail. Check for vacuum leaks. Clean the injectors with BG-44K or Chevron Techron. Add these products when the fuel level is below 1/4 tank to get the best effect…

fuel filter and pump are new

Have the fuel pressure checked anyway…Injectors must have the proper pressure to provide the correct amount of fuel. A sharp mechanic can check “fuel trim” to see if the ECM is trying to correct the problem…

Check the EGR and all the mechanisims that control it. I just had the same problem on my
Windstar. Turned out to be the pressure relieve valve that controls the EGR.
