Check to see if the PCM could be getting wet.
I had a this problem with mine. It turned out to be the PCM would get wet when it rained or the van was washed recently. If the rubber gasket between the plastic shrowd and the windsheild does not seal on the passinger side, you could be getting water on the plug to the PCM. Then when it dries out it will run fine.
Ford knows of this problem but will do nothing to fix it. They did put out a TSB on it and how to seal it up.

Please help me!!!! My van takes spells where it won't run right. It dies in drive, won't take reverse.

If it dies right when you put it in gear. It would be the valve body or the torque converter lock up solenoid sticking. These can be checked and replaced with out pulling the transmission. The codes have to be read, Since it is intermittent, you have to use a scanner to look at history codes.

Ford Excurtion will start normal, but stall when putting in gear (reverse) or braking. When re-starting it runns ok until next braking.

Have the catalytic converter checked at your local muffler shop...clogged...worn out...Hope this helps.

2005 freestar, turn key on and fuel system won't pressurize. Spray a little starting fluid and van runs fine, system won't pressurize for initial start.

i would check the fuel filter if thats not it then it will most likely be the fuel pressure regulator make sure the vacuum line didnt fall off of it if that checks out then id say its your pump good luck i hope this helps

2005 Freestar Beeping noise while in drive or reverse . No beeping in park.

You have a blown fuse. It's likly that the battery is'nt charging as the altenator is'nt on either. Because the gauges fuse is blown the gas gauge can be wrong too. The best way to find the blown fuse is to check them all. The cigar lighter fuse can set this problem too as all systems effect all other systems ( big brother is watching ). Theirs other things that can happen but this is where to start. Add a conment and I'll see what you found out and try to help you more.

2005 Ford Freestar. Started car, pulled out backwards turning 90 degrees for about 30 feet at end of driveway, shifted into drive, drove 100 feet to the street end of driveway, stopped, looked both ways,...

These are common for stripping the splines in the torque converter for the pump shaft. If it did this when you check the fluid with the engine running it will read overfull. To fix it you would have to remove the transmission and replace the torque converter.

2005 Ford Freestar Want start sometimes.

A late reply; I'm sure you have found the problem by now-
It sounds as if the battery (old and new) are not receiving sufficient charge.
Check the drive belt tension and add a cheap digital multimeter to your 'tools.'  These can be had for well under $20 US and you can then check across the battery terminals to see if the charge voltage is between ~ 13-14.3 volts at an idle. In no case should it be lower than 13 volts with the engine running since the nominal battery voltage is 12.6 volts when fully charged.
You may have a separate regulator that is ill.
