Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab

1 Answer

IDLE May be too Low

For some Reason at Idle it appears to want to sputter and die but just gets low enough to sputter but not ever die... Only at idle

I have changed the Plugs, replaced the Fuel Filter, put in the Fuel addative cleaner

I have the 200 F-150 XL Triton V8 4.6 not the Flare

You could have a faulty Tps(throttle position sensor) this is located on the throttle body and has either a 4 wire plug or a 2 wire plug. I'm willing to bet that you need to replace this. the tps is responsible for your idle setting via the ecm(engine control moduel)...please rate this

My car starts hesitates the engine vibrates oil light comes on then sputters and cuts off


run the fault codes . Check for idle speed sensor and MAF sensor. It should be idling around 900rpm and the oil light coming on ( assuming you have enough oil in the sump) will be because of the very low idle rpm not pumping enough oil to maintain pressure.

Does My Fuelpump need replaced? my 95 saturn sc2 has an idle that kicks up high then down low enough to almost die and recently has died but starts right back up this has happened since replacing the idle...


Nope it is an idle airspeed issue or an EGR valve issue. What was the reason that you replaced the Idle Air motor? Did you use the control number that is listed on the original one?

Codes are reading low tps voltage, mapps high voltage ignition on low voltage at idle. Idle surges sputers and stalls when driving. Replaceed mapp and tps with no improvment?


Have you consider to check the battery power. I believe the main problem you have is either the battery or the alternator. Due to these two things with low voltage the brain ( ECU ) does not have the enough power to work. Good Luck.

My 1988 gl 4 speed with carburator dies when put in nuetral just prior to a stop.


Way more info is needed. Check the fuel filter. Could be plugged just enough to starve at a low idle but gets enough when you have higher rpms. Does it sputter at an idle? Could be so many things, to electrical, including needing the carburetor rebuilt.

Probably air-flow meter trouble. Take them out and gently clean them with cotton bud's and petrol. Cleaning may not be enough one may be faulty and need replacing.

1996 Mercury villager 96,000 miles- dies out


Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
