Any number of things but you already know that. Ever change the gas filter? Take a volt reading on TPS or scan it. (Throttle Position Sensor) Do you have a regular shop you go to. If not find one before you need one and don't just do breakdown repairs like most people.

93 5,8l. Ford F150xlt throttle cuts out while driving, realese petal and works again.? New f filter and plugs wires

I had a very similar problem. Mine was caused by a weak in tank fuel pump. As long as I wasn't asking for too much fuel, it ran fine, but the moment I put my foot into, it would cough and sputter and try to die. But once I pulled my foot off the accelerator It would either cut off completely or idle and run fine, until I again would try to make it over the hill into Hillsboro. Hope this has helped you

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate

Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.

Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.

My Taurus idles fine, but when gas pedal is depressed it coughs and dies

I would suggest a new fuel filter, air filter and especially new plugs..Check the oil and when its running pull the transmission dip stick and smell it. If its not clear and smells nasty then have it replaced. It tells you the type on the dipstick, but have a mechanic do it.
Fresh oil change too..
