Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab
When at slow idle in gear lights flicker ,truck stalls only on once in a while
Idle Air control valve is the typical problem on all fords, I'd check that as the first thing, a vacuum leak as well, or a bad egr valve, my number one guess is IAC MOTOR. It's easy to replace too, although around sixty or seventy bucks

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)
You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.
