Is there a squealing noise like the pulley may have locked up? Make sure you don't have wiring getting hot.Check all areas near the exhaust and at the firewall area where the EGR piping comes off the exhaust.
Make sure nothing is laying against the exhaust or catalytic converter. don-ohio

I hear the same problem in this model and it turned out that he just needed a set of new spark plug wires. Are you try this?

The two most common causes for this concern is a...
- Faulty Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP), or
- Bad fuel pump.

Make sure the theft light is not flashing rapidly, and the inertia switch is set:
- If the theft light is flashing, you most likely have a bad key. Let the car rest for 15 mins and try a different key (check the Owners Manual for armed/disarm)
- The inertia switch is in the trunk, on the right side. You will see a red button. Make sure it is depressed.

If both are ok, Check fuel pressure, and check for RPM with a scan tool:
- If no RPM signal, replace the CKP,
- If no fuel pressure, replace fuel filter and fuel pump.

Hope helps.

I am a 25 year Ford tech and the problem is a dirty idle speed control solenoid and throttle blade, do the following procedure I use at work, follow it exactly or it won't work.

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, stall during deceleration, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carburetor spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
