|Svteurobw||My 04 svt had the same prob I did wires plugs fuel filter and never had it happen again in the last 30000 miles I used all ford parts incl the factory non copper plugs. now if u have a CAI I would try cleaning your mass air sensor I had a Nissan with one and every time it started stalling it was due to the sensor being dirty|

so what is the number one thing to try.. So many people have done differnt things that worked for them..
Is iacv clean or replacment the best thing to do..?
fuel filter and fuel pump

|blackonblacksvt03||Mine did this for two years until I put the cfm intake couplers in but I cleaned the TB at the same time I did that has not done it in 6 months or so it was a monthly happening and I never really worried about it|

|Evanc291||Gotcha, that makes sense|

|itr909||I was also told that the temperature can play a factor in a tune also|

|Evanc291||Hmm, that's why I was thinking, maybe it was tuned for a higher elevation.. Well thanking for confirming that could be the problem|

|itr909||I had a similar issue with my tune however my issue was due to elevation.|

I have the same problem, I can pretty much count on it stalling if I let the rpm's drop, sometimes it's not a problem, but other times, it idles super rough. I bought the car and the previous owner definitely has has it tuned, it runs super rich at idle and also it has no cat. So unless there is a fake 02 sensor, he has tuned it.
I've done everything that could obviously be the problem. Cleaned the IAC, TB, no vacuum leaks, cleaned MAF sensor, fuel filter, air filter, and no battery or alternator problems. I did recently have a CEL for PO1131 and PO0133.. It's interesting though, every time I reset the ECU, it runs perfect, until I turn the car off. Also, sometimes it does that surge thing everyone is talking about. It feels like it's just dumping gas, and it also backfires a lot, and my miles per gallon is terrible right now. So do you think it just needs a new tune? Or maybe some fuel pressure problem.. I can't think of much else

You need a new set of battery cables.
Along with the Updated Alternator pigtail and Updated Ignition pigtail.
Electrical problems are a bitch but these 3 items solve the majority of them, the only other common problem I can think of electrically is the hatchback models rear harness in the hatch can become brittle and break causing electrical gremlins, and specifically to the SVT the headlamp switchmake sure the dimmer rheostat is just below the max setting to stop the flicker of the el-glo.
