My shop says Ford no longer makes this part, and cant find a check engine assembly anywhere. Where can I find one?Cant pass inspection without fixing! My car has only 80K miles!

1.9 engine, perodicaly revs up and dies back to an idle. other tines runs like a sewing machine

gaugd works till half, then drops to empty

my car wont run properly in idle or driving, in idle car dies and runs roughly, car also acts like its not getting enough gas when trying to accelerate and falls on its face alot when trying to go through the gears, it sputs and putters really bad trying to drive around. almost reminds me of a bad carburator miss but this car car has no carburator haha i have changed the distributor cap and rotor button and the idle sensor and car still runs the same, and the fuel pump still functions fine as far as i can tell no problems with it and i have replaced the plugs and plug wires and the coil is fine. any suggestions at all??? i really dont wanna have to pull the whole throttle body off lol
