Check the IAC valve.... they stick and go bad sometimes.... Check the red wire going to it to see if it has 12V key on engine off. If the iac is ok you may want to clean it why you have it appart.
Try tapping on the mass air flow also... this is a wiggle test - ford name - for testing it... if it stumbles or dies or hickups or anything swap it out - maf do go bad, but not very often. Check the TPS for voltage should be .50 ct (I think) and over 4.50 WOT.

Good luck...
