Anybody feel like deciphering this SVT Repair Receipt??

So my car has been sputtering with the clutch IN when coming to stop signs, and on the occasion it would flat out DIE on me while slowing down with the clutch in...sometimes before the car even came to a stop it would die on me and I'de have to turn it back on to get my steering and gas back. So I took the car into the shop and they spent 3 days "working" on it. well I got my car back today and it drove fine for a while, but it has sputtered 2 times since I got it back. It has not died on me yet, but it felt like it wanted to. I'm gonna give it til monday to shape up or it's going back to the dealership for a THIRD time and I'll get the good ol' redflag. I don't wanna have to bust a lemon-law on their asses.

Concern 51 Engine stalling out. Advise.
Cause not OP properly
Correction ECC tests OK p1000 hotline 1-31 1:19 PM bill #315 480 756/3171426

51-1Rd tests and monitor MAF-FTRM-TP-IAC duty cycle OK/clutch OK adaptiv
51-2E strategy relearn procedure 60MPH Decel 40MPH 3 times-pass 33925
51-3MI in 33937 out multiple road tests and monitor PIDs-clutch and BOO ok.
51-4EVAP tests-pass. Repl VMV Valve-Suspect mechanical sticking open.
51-5Rd test/no stall w/bucky. Gabe rd. test w/cust no stall (didn't really happen)

FMC YS4Z 9C915 BA
parts: count 1 ALLOWANCE 9.54 qty: 1 $23.86

total time spent: 2.7 hours when my car was in the shop for a total of 3 whole days!

I'm pretty sure the 33.20 they spent on "parts" was for gas since they put almost 130 miles on my car in 3 days.

This probably means nothing to most of you...hopefully TOM will chime in.

When I first got mine in aug.. It did that 2 me like once a day and I took it bakc to the dealer too and they sed it was me because I wasn't "pushing the clutch" in all the way.. That's bullshit I know I was it hasn't died on me in a long time but I still get that putter like it wants 2 every once in a while or the battery light will come on n go away.

Sounds like the exact same symptoms I have....or had...or still kind of have. That's BS about the clutch not being in all the way though.

sounds great Tom! Just lemme know what i should do.

I also forgot to mention that during the course of washing my car for me before I came to pick it up from the dealership, they ripped the base of my antenna off so I have to take it in when the part arrives so that they can fix it! s.

So Tom, the VMV valve was sticking? What does this mean? It said that the part was replaced. My car hasn't sputtered as badly and it hasn't stalled at all, but it is STILL having the same problem seemingly on a smaller level. Are these guys idiots or what? I don't understand how they can't just FIX the problem.
