I would clean out the idle air control valve, they get dirty and cause this problem, if that doesn't help, clean the throttle body. Its possible that you need full tune up, fuel inj system cleaning.

Also, keep in mind the Vehicle Speed Sensor or threw a plug; common problem look online under recalls and you will see information on it.

Hops helps.

    hey thanks for the response, i have already cleaned the iac, and the tb, nothings changed. this vehicle was working just fine, then one day while driving at highway speeds it backfired but kept running, then at stop lights it would hesitate when trying to get moving again. then when i shut it off it was really hard to start, then i plugged my otc genesis scan tool and no codes so i brought it to the ford dealer to have them tell me whats wrong with it,,,, they could not get it running but said fuel pressure was good and it needed new spark plugs so i put new plugs in it and no change still runs the same,,, if i can get it to run. also if the vss was bad would'nt it throw a code? so do you have any other idea's? also if i un-plugged the iac while it was run and there was no change in how it runs at that point,,, would that mean that it was bad? if so wouldn't that throw a code? Thanks for your help!

    I'll search for any vacuum leak. Also check EGR, MAF sensor.

After gasing up my 2000 excursion the truck stopped then it only starys on if the gas pedel is down it just shakes

That sounds like your Idle Air Control valve has gone out.

You can get one at any parts store, and swap it out in a few minutes.

If that doesn't fix the problem, look at your Mass Air Flow meter, that could be out too.
