SOURCE: Jerking while driving
If you park your vehicle for a long time, you run the risk of having contaminated fuel in the tank. This happened to a car my wife purchased, and it was the last thing I found. It proved to be the problem. What you need to do is remove the fuel from the tank and then have the tank flushed. Fill it with fresh fuel and replace the fuel filter.

I have the same problem. Low rpm a **** or a shudder, high rpm runs fine. Also, at slow acceleration it will cut out then suddenly get its power back. I am looking into it being the being the TPS sensor (Throttle Position Sensor). I think these things can get dead spots. If a check engine light comes on, and you have a misfire, have the code read, chances are you need to change the ignition coil pack. It is just a matter of knowing which cylinder is misfiring.

fuel pump is bad. they are under extented warranty from ford. take to dealer and "insist" they change it. there is service bulletin on this, but dealers often play "dumb".

could be the iac valve, idle air control valve.
at the beginning check for air leaks, a scanner will be enough for to know the reason,

Had same problem with a f-150.
wal-mart had a deal on a gunk fuel injection cleaning process. Felt the difference as soon as I left garage.
