The Engine Coolant Temperature sensor?

Just below the round cap in front of the intake manifold. It's screwed in below the cap at an angle, and the harness is attached at the back of it.

Looks like this,

Has two wires that go to it. Remember to use high temp Red, on the threads of the ECT when you reinstall the new one. Also check the condition of the insulation of those two wires.

(A Ford dealership stated, that it's located at the back of one of the cylinder heads. I'l go with my Mitchells Shop Manual)

Clean the throttle body with c.r.c. get it at autozone ect.The t.p.s. (throttle position sensor) could be acting up.The t.p.s. controls how much air/fuel enters the throttle body and if your problem only happens in the summer this may be your problem.
