New To Me 2000 FF SE Stalls occasionally

Newbie Here I just picked up a 2000 Focus SE dirt cheap. Starting the fixing, replacing the LCA's with ball joints, flex pipe extension, and motor mounts to start. I am having a issue with it stalling once in a while when it is warm, been reading on here possibly a vacuum issue but not sure where to start? Any suggestions on where to start would be greatly appreciated. Also one of the cables for the throttle has slack ( 1/4 to 1/2inch) looking at the engine it is the cable on the left which runs to the assembly right behind the the connection point. A few things about my car, 197100 on the odometer PO changed the clutch a year ago. The car runs strong no motor noises at this point. Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

hi and welcome to the forum.

A warm stall is a common failure mode on older Focii and a frequent topic of discussion here. The usual suspects are a cracked PCV hose or a dirty/failed IAC valve. Plug those terms into the forum search box and you'll find alot of useful info.

Neither component is in plain view, but the PCV hose is the easier one to diagnose first in your process of elimination. I pulled the airbox and intake runner off while replacing the driver's side motor mount, which allowed easy access to the hose for inspection.
