a couple of other things to check since it's an early-model Focus:
  • collapsed PCV hose
  • dirty/faulty IAC valve
  • fuel pump failure
Regarding the last item, was your fuel pump ever replaced under the Ford recall? I experienced the textbook symptoms - stall without warning when driving with less than a 1/4-tank of gas (especially when turning).
