If you now have a check engine light on stop at your local auto zone for a free diagnostics check.
They can give you the specific code and a easy explination of what is causing your problem

Sounds like you might have bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, mabye even a fuel issue.
Try doing a full rutine matinence.
Plugs, Wires, Distributor Cap and Rotor, and see if that helps.

I would check the computer for trouble codes first. A code may point you in the right direction to test.
Problem could be a faulty throttle position sensor, fuel pressure low, or ignition problem.

I have a 2002 Mercury Sable w/ 3.0L DOHC. The Fuel Cap light keeps on, yesterday the engine started idleing rough, today it acts like a stuck throttle until the car is stoped and then it acts like it...

You have a vacuum leak some where. Engine uses vacuum to burn gas vapors in gas tank. This is the EVAP SYSTEM. This system can detect a small leak or large leak. (gas cap light.) But there are also other items on the car that use vacuum to do work. The PCV circuit . This vents the engine's crank case. Also power brakes and some ac/heater controls. Now it sound like a good size vacuum leak if car idle is "high". I would say open the hood and listen. When car first starts idle should be around 1500 rpm or so. If you have a tachometer in car. then as it starts to warm up the idle should start to go down. Then listen for a hiss around the center of engine compartment. the black tube and ribs looking thing is your intake where vacuum ports would start. Check line or hoses to see if cracked or broken. Ford/Mercury like to use hard plastic for lines and become brittle after a while and break.
