Question about 2001 Ford Mustang
Last winter I was having intermittent starting problems with my 2001 Ford Mustang. When I tried to start it, it would start, but as soon as I took my foot off the gas it died. The car has not been driven much over the years, I have only 27,000 actual miles. Although in the last six months I do average about 200 miles per week on it. I took it into the dealer and ended up replacing the battery, they could not duplicate the problem and I hadn't had any problems since. Then on Sunday I drove it to the store, was in there an hour and came out and the same problem. I could keep it running as long as my foot was on the gas, and eventually, it stayed started. The engine is not running rough and it otherwise seems okay. The temp at the time was 38 degrees and had been raining mixed with snow earlier -- what could be causing this problem?
One of the most likely causes would be your iac valve sticking. you can pull it off and clean with carb cleaner. it will be bolted on air intake close to throttle plate two 8mm bolts it will have a little motor housing coming out of it.
