Change CPS (cam position sensor). You can get them from NAPA for around 30 but you can get one from international for a T444E which is the 7.3. for about 20 and they last longer/work better. Recently Ford has been sending all the owners of these trucks recalls for the cam sensor. If that doesnt work, check Injection Control Pressure Sensor, Fuel Filter, Injection Pressure Regulator, HPOP, and scan the computer for shits and giggles with a snap on machine to make sure the oil pressure is where it should be.

2003 Ford Explorer XLT Wants To Stall At Low Idle,, especially when at a stop light


How does it idle in park , does it run ruff or smooth? Are any lights lit on the dash , check engine etc. ? Could have a partially plugged IAC air passage .idle air control (IAC) valve ! The engine computer uses the IAC to control idle , when under a load such as when put into gear the computer raises the idle ! It does this by allowing more air to by pass the closed throttle into the engine raising the idle ! If these air passages clog they restrict the air flow an cause a idle problem ! Now if it runs ruff at idle in park you could have vacuum leak ! Rough Idle How to Fix Ford Taurus Engine Stalls at Stop Signs

Rough idle


What about the coil packs? Do you have a check engine light on? If so take it to an auto parts store and see if they will scan your vehicle for the codes.

2000 grand prix, 3800 when it warms up losses power


I would have to say the fuel/water separator filter is clogged up. The filter will remove water and crud from the gas. It looks more like a small can under the car. If the car set up with a low tank of gas, water will condensate inside and once the new fuel sloshes around it gets all this junk off the walls of the tank and that gets sucked in the filter. Try and replace that first..

Ruff idle on my 2001 for taurus. At higher rpms it runs fine.


It is most likely you wheel alignment (costs about 20 bucks to have your wheels aligned) or try checking the tire Pressure to make sure they're all even maybe hope this helps

The engine revs up when its is idling


Sounds like either an idle air control valve or a TPS sensor. These items will cause a check engine light to come on as well.. I recommend heading to an AUTOZONE or an AAMCO and you can get the check engine light checked for free. Hopefully you dont live in California cause then you can only go to AAMCO cause AUTOZONE cant do it in California. Good luck

Starts but runs ruff till it is warm.


Probably the EGR valve is stuck open. It is supposed to be closed when idling. Check/replace.
If your "check engine light" is ON, have the fault code scanned at AutoZone (free).

Only runs ruff during park and idle.


Your EGR valve shouldn't open up during idle or the engine will run rough and may even stall. Remove it and clean the plunger and port with a wire brush and some carb cleaner. Test the diaphragm with a vacuum pump. If it doesn't work after cleaning, or the diaphragm is bad, buy a new EGR valve.
