    Assuming it runs fine otherwise, my first guess would be a bad IAC valve. It's pretty common on many Fords.

    thats a very Good Detailed Writeup about that.But i dont have No humming Noises or nothing.Also seems that before it dies my battery Meter DROPS! down to about 1/4 way then shuts off(i may just be over reacting.)i know the meter moves even when rolling the windows down..Im hoping its not a sign of an alternator going Bad/Battery going bad.But its really not pointing in that Direction..each time it died i did have the Heat Full Blast with the Radio Going.But i will Check air Filters/Fuel filters Today!..Well Hopefully today!haha

    If it's stalling at idle, the first thing I'd check would be IAC valve. Takes only a minute to pull it off & clean it out... then let it dry completely (may take a while).. and put it back on and fire it up.

    Ok you got a point..it is only doing it at idle..either way i dont really know much history but ill clean that,Wouldnt hurt to change the fuel/air filter as well..
