Be sure to check the fuel pressure regulator. It sits just before the fuel rack for the injectors. FYI Ford is out of them till Nov. and they cost about $100+. I got one for free at a junk yard. You need to pull the fuel rail to remove and replace the reg.

Changing the spark plugs to my 01 focus made no change in this type behavior. I changed the Throttle Position Sensor, and it runs better than ever before. Very inexpensive repair, and no more stalls when sitting at an intersection.
