LOL, ya, I hear ya. It still stumbles every once and a while. It'll sometimes stalls at idle too. I think I'm going to pull the plugs and check them, and change the IACV at the same time. If that doesn't fix it, I'll pull the ECU on the parts car, send it out to get flashed or reprogrammed or something, then throw that in. I think the coolant fan circuit is blown on it as well, 'cause the fan doesn't come on anymore... It'll overheat if it idles for too long Shocked

that car has a module on the core support that has several relays in it. its under the plastic piece thats bolted over the top of the radiator. those modules are notorious for failing on the cooling fan circuit. it also controls other systems but i cant remember what. if its bad get a NEW MOTORCRAFT. the cheap ones wont work.
