Help out of town and stuck

So heres the deal new fuel filter just installed i thought that was it. driving up to stop light and truck just shut off like the key was turned. started back up but stutters and has ruff idle back and forth under 1000rpm. if you keep yer foot on it at like 1800 rpm, it stays and runs great you can rev all you want great but it wont stay idel on its own. any ideas what this could be?
Thanks guys

I agree. Sounds like a CPS problem to me.

Have you had the CPS recall done yet on your truck yet?

good call, it is a recall, you should be able to drive it to the nearest ford dealership and they will do it for free
