2004 Ford Focus running terrible

645 2
I have a 2004 focus that runs pretty good when idling but as soon as you put it i gear it shakes bad. when you turn the ac on it tries to die. There is no check engine light on.The plugs look really lean. I have 40 pounds of fuel pressure and it holds for 30 mins after turning the car off so i dont think thats it. Im sure a sensor is causing the problem by not reading right but i cant seem to track it down. thanks in advance for any help.

You didn't happen to mention the engine type for help pointing to the part location, but it sure sounds like an IAC that isn't working well causing a drop in RPM when put in gear or A/C turns on.

If it doesn't idle high when cold, the IAC is doing nothing at all.
