My 2000 ford focus zts starts and runs good until i put it in drive then i drive up to a stoplight or sign then it cuts off unless i keep my foot on the gas, could it be my alternator? please help, thanks

Problem sounds like a faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle body.
The computer adjusts idle speed by the control valve and how much air it lets into the intake.
Is the check engine light on ?

If im doing 30 say in 3 can taken foot of petdal and car will keep on driving like its on criuse control ??

I would say that that is pretty much normal. Ay that speed, the maf sensor is detecting air movement into the motor which makes it run at a fast idle. I would not worry too much.
