Ford Contour Stall

I have a 1997 Contour with about 137000 miles on it. On cold mornings when I start the car, it will idle for a minute then stall. It starts right back up and every once in a while will stall out again, however it is usually fine after the first occurence. I have scanned the cpu to no avail and sent it to both Ford and private mechanics to no avail, no codes and no answers. I do rember one mechanic stating that it might be a maf sensor, and I have read your other forums about the feul pump and filter. I was wondering what you might suggest, as I have had both checked and evrything has passed with flying colors.

This may be of no value, but want to pass it along. We had one that was similiar if I remember right. The check engine light was lit and helped in finding the problem. There was a vacuum hose that runs from the booster to the manifold that had rubbing on another line or somthing. The leak was hard to find. Using a smoke machine we narrowed it down, but had to move the line around to get it to show.
