with that kind of knowledge of modern cars I would be scared as hell .you got moxie for sure! the ford sounds like it just needs plugs, and maybe a fuel cleaner. if no codes showing sensors .

I had a similar problem.Very low idle and stalled out twice. I cleaned the MAF sensor and throttle body. Solved my problem. [ make sure you ONLY use MAF sensor cleaner anything else could burn out the wires on the sensor] CRC makes it. got it at Carquest
