I have a 2000 Ford Focus LX and it idles rough and every time I stop at stop lights it stalls. I have changed the spark plugs, wires, oil, and altenator. I dont know what the problem is.

These engines have a lot of issues with vacuum leaks, listen for a sucking of whistling type sound with the engine idleing. Check the pcv hose which is in the front of the motor and runs down close to the exhaust manifold. Also check the hose on the back side below the throttle body, look for cracks, holes, or the hoses being sucked shut or collapseing.
