The most common problem on a Ford with these codes is deteriorated PCV hoses. Check the hoses from the PCV valve to the intake manifold. Pay special attention to the rubber elbows. They often crack on the inside curve and the crack is hard to see.

Check the wire harness near the top of the engine in the rear. They were good for rubbing through on the trans fill tube bracket. Judging by the code you have 4 sensors. you would be interested in the drivers side rear sensor.

it may be a defective O2 sensor here is th difinition:
P0133 - Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Slow Response Bank 1 Sensor 1 , this is the sensor on the side of the engine that #1 cylinder is on, it is the sensor before the cat.

Those codes are for the oxygen sensors, lean fuel mixture on both banks. Change them, problem with stalling and rough idle should go away.
