Hi and welcome to the forum.

Your warm engine stall is a common failure mode for older Focii - search the forum using keywords like stall, IAC valve and collapsed PCV tube.

If it's your IAC valve, then here's a long thread with suggestions for when you get ready to do the job:

How to: Clean a Zetec IAC

good luck!
