It sounds like a sticking idle air control valve(I.A.C. valve).Depending on mileage it might be covered under a ford emission warranty.
If you are to replace it youself it's not to bad just a couple of small bolts.I'd suggest buying it from a ford dealer and have their parts department print out a picture of it's location.

1999 vehicle, should be covered by the factory warranty in most cases.
