5.4 L eng? On these at 90000- 120000 miles;
There is a vacuum line (rubber) on the aft part of the engine,engine-tranny-firewall area, that usually deteriorates to the point of leaking. This will cause uneven idle or stalling. The vehicle should still accelerate normally, especially at full throttle.

After starting it will idle down.......during the day at intermittent times the idle surges then it will stop.i start again.fine for a while then the idle surges stalls....happens all day.....driving me...

Sounds like a Dirty IAC ( idle Air Control ) on the back of the throttle body.

You will need to remove the plastic throttle body cover to see it, it is mounted on the back


2 8mm bolt head ( actually sheet metal screws that have hex heads ) and it will come off.

Take a look at the plunger inside the IAC, to see if it is gummed up, Some throttle body safe Throttle body cleaner should do the trick ( I used 90% isopropyl alcohol and Q-tips to clean mine on my 2001 ).
It should look like this when clean

I replaced mine after the 2nd time is gave me grief ( seems to happen more often once it starts ) and it was ~ 70.00 at one of the Ford dealers that sell parts online ( tasca ).

Left car in garage with door open  = flat battery jump started no hassle result no radio   car is suzuki g/v 20l t/d  reg may 20005

Just a couple of guesses:

1) If you turn the radio on and get white noise, the capacitor that 'remembers' your preset stations may have fully discharged and lost it's settings. If so, just re-tune and re-save stations.

2) If you turn radio on and get nothing, maybe it's fuse blew during the jump start?

Will not drop down from fast idle when first started

It sounds like an automatic choke system. Let it warm up for 5 minutes and then give it gas up to 2000rpm and release.
