Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew
Sounds like the IAC ( Idle Air Control ) is gummed up. Last I looked they were ~ 70.00 online or they are easy enough to clean with windex.
The IAC is mounted on the back of the throttle body, you will need to remove the plastic throttle body cover to get to it. It is held on with 2 8mm ( think that is the size ) head bolts.
The IAC needs to be cleaned out so the motor can move the plunger back and forth and allow air into the back of the throttle body when the butterfly is closed.

Engine stalling issue at low speeds
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
