Hi there good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response
Ok this concern was down to a throttle postion sensor issue (parameter issue ) software issue
This fault was resolved by a software update of the PCM
Ford released a later calibration many years ago to resolve the issue
This software update /calibration needs to carried out using fords ids software
If the fault persists after the software update them the throttle postion sensor should be replaced
In most cases the software update will resolve this issue
