Engine Stalling and/or Hesitation on Acceleration due to Faulty Idle Air Bypass Valve on Ford Taurus

Problem Description and Possible Solution

If you experience difficulty starting the engine when cold, stalling at idle, or hesitations during acceleration, it may be the idle air bypass valve. This valve helps the vehicle idle steady when the accelerator pedal is not pressed.

My Taurus want stay running unless I keep my foot on the gas. As soon as I take my foot off it dies out.
I've replaced this part twice allready
It runs great. For a day then boom
By the second day its back to
The same things engine shuts off
At idl . Some times. And has a very bad
Rough idle
The part goes bad n two. Days
I mean wtf. Is going on
This is getting very old very fast
Losing power on acceleration.
I had to replace the starter because it stalled me at the clinic. The oil was dripping down in the starter. It's hard to start my Taurus in the cold. While driving it feels like someone is rear ending me. The transmission bumps. When I turn my car off it has a faint clicking under the hood. I've never been sent anything for recalls before.

PVC Valve warn to the point of wide open at idle and acceleration. Look and see of it is close air off or it will effect IAB valve.
