Default Hesitation

Im having problems with acceleration. When i try to speed up sort of fast, i feel some, well, hesitation. A kind of jerkiness, or shaking, but then its fine after that, and theres no hesitation when i slow down. So, i'd appreciate it if you guys could give me any ideas. Thx

FWIW, my 01 5.4L F-150 did the same thing as the post above twice. First time, dealer said it was a coil gone bad. Replaced the coil, problem gone. For about 2 years. 3 months ago, problem back. Took it to the dealer, yep another coil. This time, it ran better. Last week, out of nowhere it started up again. Before, it would hesitate from 40-50 mph. Now, its doing it anytime its in a gear (reverse, drive, 1,2) with my foot on the brake. Going to Ford again today, hope they don't tell me its another coil.
