There are a number of reasons that can cause this, ether electrical or fuel. Start by having any codes read by a scanner, this would point you into the right direction. If it is a fuel issue some vehicles will not set a code for this, so have the fuel pressure checked also.

only problem is it cant start it to get it anywhere to have it scanned

It sounds like the throttle position sensor within the throttle body itself is failing. I have same car, exact issues and when it finally failed, a p2111 and p2112 appeared on diagnostic tool. Fords suggestion is to replace with an UNHEATED throttle body . Youtube videos on replacing. Simple DIY fix. You can watch video for five hundred, ford freestar, and Mercury montego. All same layout.
