OMG- My shop was charging about $1800-2200 for this.
Sound like he did a great job and you got a lot of miles left to go.

Drive it for a week and change the oil! Its very good practice after any engine work because dust and dirt DID get in there.

The dealership went back into the engine when we took it up and they said the tensioners had gone bad and that they replaced both, but when they droe it after it did the same thing. Thats when they took it to ford and ford said it has low oil pressure and thats why the cam phasers arent working correctly. The shop put a manual oil pressure gauge on it and he said it bounced all over the place but never went under the 10-12psi that it is suppose to have?
klinge, s_vares, or 2002vertgt...does that sound like what yours was doing when it stalled?

I did the complete timing gear work, which has made a huge difference.

I have been having stalling problems, since doing this work though, not all the time and not consistently!

I cleaned the throttle body and checked all the connections.

Changed the fuel filter.

Changed all the injectors (170,000 miles).

Its better, but still stalls from time to time but I think it has to be an idle control issue rather than a timing or engine issue? I think I am right in saying the base idle is set until 1200-1400rpm when the cam phasers begin to tension up and adjust the cam shaft position?

I will try re-setting the throttle/ECU set up by disconnecting the battery again?
