It's probably something to do with the fuel system. I'd check the fuel system pressure, the fuel pump, and the fuel injector (could be clogged or jammed with something).

I also had the same problem. The torque converter is locking up. Cost me $1,500.00 ouch But it fixed the problem.

Can you drive it? If it seems normal while driving but when you stop at a red light or stop sign, it boggs down and dies, like drivig a stick shift and not pressing the clutch at a stop, then yes, I'd agree with Ron - it's a bad TC. If you've got a truely handy person around that's a mechanic guru and works for beer, you can get out of this repair for around $400 in parts. If not then the $1,500 that Ron paid sounds about right for this job. I'm guessing that if you want a Ford dealer to do the job, it would be nearly twice that amount.
