If you have over 40,000 miles on the car it may be due for a tune up and new drive belt

Possibly a vacuum leak. I'd try checking the hose going to the PCV valve as it's a common problem with Ford engines. They generally collapse and melt a hole through the rubber elbow on the valve end but have seen the opposite end do the same thing on occasion.

Check throttle cable for fraying /binding. Check for vacuum leaks, check tps and any idle control motors fro proper operation, check throttle plate for carbon buildup.
