look for vac leak. poss pcv hose is bad and causing leak. fords are good for this. it could also be serveral other items like mass air flow or injectors issue. if you can't find a vac leak have a smoke test done on car and that will show you any leaks. but pull pcv hose and insp that 1st. DO YOU HAVE HIGH IDLE?

no only when it first starts. only issue besides the check engine light on is a slight shake of the engine
