several things can do this but most likely would be
1 TPS trottle postion sensor = replace
2 stuck butterfly valve inside the trottle body = clean out with trottle body cleaner try to get most of the black build up with a old tooth brush
3 bad trottle cable= feel the cable make sure it moves freely if not replace it

SOURCE: my ford windstar 2001 act
Mine idled rough but didn't throw any codes. It was suggested to be the idle air control valve, so I took it off and used carb cleaner to clean it out. I sprayed it, let it sit, then wiped it out, then repeated a few times. I also worked the valve back and forth and let the cleaner get in all the nooks and crannys. It helped considerably. Taking the IAC valve off is very simple. Its only held on by 2 bolts. Trying a $2 can of cleaner sure beat replacing it for $65.

Testimonial: "hey thanks, but I guess the idle control valve I bought was faulty, so I took it back replaced it and the noise is gone. "
may need 1 0r more coil packs replaced,or it could be what happened to my 2000 4.6---1 lifter expanded out and wouldnt collapse,causing the rocker arm to fall out of place and the valve could never open...try unplugging 1 coil pack at a time while running and listen for a change in the way it runs,if there isnt a change then its probably a bad coil pack,find a cylinder that runs and swap the coil packs,if no difference then its probably the valve staying shut.
