    Could be alot of things,IAC or ABP (air bypass valve as ford calls it),or anything else.Look for vacuum leaks first,especially the throttle body or the ABP valve gasket.If it isn't something simple,it's worth it to have it properly "scanned" for codes to determine the problem,rather than making expensive guesses.You can also get a handheld code reader,or a code jumper,and read the codes yourself.If you need the code definitions let me know,as I'm an ex-ford electronics tech.
