Ford has a recall on what is called TFI Thick Film Ignition your symptoms sounds alot like this as I just recently experienced this myself have this replaced and see if it helps the part should be 30-60 dollars good luck
water in the fuel can cause an idling motor to sputter and/or die.
because itt needs to be work on
Could be in need of a tune up.
A malfunctioning battery can't provide enough power to your ignition system when the motor is idling can cause sputtering. If there is not enough gas, that can cause your vehicle to sputter. If the spark plugs fail to fire will also cause your vehicle to sputter.
It could be that your car is idling to low, the throttle position sensor can be bad
It may be a EGR valve issue. This valve is normally closed at idle and opens at about 40mph.
answers are no where to be seen
Possibly. The main thing it can cause is severe engine wear. Too much oil is just as bad as too little.
There are various reasons why your car would almost stall when idling. In most cases, this might be an indication of the engine lacking power or capacity due to the failure of the pistons. You should contact a mechanic to diagnose the problem.

my idling on my 2001 ford focus is not idling correct, tried to adjust idling but there is no screw or way to adjust why?
steering control requires more than idle speed, don't be deceived by a valid argument would be "stopping". technically you would be correct because since the lowest speed of a PWC would be idling, and stopping would require more than idle speed if you were to attempt an operation of "stopping".
If the check engine light comes on it is best to take it to a auto part store or mechanic for a diagnosis. They will be able to inform the owner what the issues is.
It could be many things. Try spraying brake cleaner on the back side of the engine where the intake manifold meets the cylinder head. If the gasket is bad the engine will mis fire or stumble.
It is idling to low, it may be in need of a tune up.
That's when the air flow passing through the radiator is least, thus the fan runs.
Because even idling engines use fuel.
Same thing on my front wheel drive car. Replace your engine mount(s). The rubber has probably worn. Not too hard of a job. -------------- Check for a mis-firing cylinder also.
I sat in my car in the driveway with the car idling, waiting for the kids to come out.
Many times when calculating miles per gallon, automotive companies will list both city mpg and highway mpg. City driving includes less miles, but more stopping and starting, and idling in traffic.
Anything over 20mph over the speed limit is considered reckless driving and you can be put in jail for it. Well.. it could cost someone their life. I do not think you can put a price on someones life. (the person who said this obiviously is unaware of the statistics that you are much more likely to die in an idling car than to be killed by someone speeding)
change the mass air flow senser
Start with a good tune up, new plugs, wires, dist cap and rotor, fuel and air filter. Clean the idle air control and inside the throtle body, and run some injector cleaner through it.
Effectively all the fuel that it burns while idling. You are getting 0 miles per gallon while idling.
Sans other problems, my experience dictates that you have a fuel filter that needs changing. Idling? hardly any pressure through the gas lines. Accelerating? pressure builds and, the fuel filter being clogged somewhat, the gas can't get through, and it's choking, so to speak. Try changing the filter. Get a Chilton's mechanic repair book and look at the trouble-shooting chapter, and look for your problem.
