Having stalling Problems on '90 Taurus

(1990 Ford Taurus)
in Latonia, KY on October 11, 2014
My 1990 Taurus 3.0 V6 has a problem of stalling/idling low. I have replaced the plugs and wires and a stuck Air Control Valve, but it still persists. I have gotten some people tell it could be Ignition Control Module, Pick up Coil and even the Ignition Coil. Any ideas as I am trying to keep from replacing parts unnecessarily.

Common problem is vacuum leak(s) on this vehicle/engine!... Vacuum hoses get 'mushy' and leak... Especially the PCV valve system... Some hoses are hard to see!!!!.. Also... Cleaning throttle body usually helps bring idle back to norm!
