Question about 2001 Ford Explorer
My daughters Explorer runs reakky well no misses but surges at idle to the point of stalling on occasion. I changed all plugs,wires filters and pcv valve. Any ideas
SOURCE: pcv valve
I have a 98 4L SOHC . The valve seems to be behind the intake manifold. The emissions diagram shows 2 hoses going to it. Local dealership swears Part #EV225 is correct. You would not believe how much of the internet is devoted to this situation

the pcv is located on the rear(firewall) of the drivers side valve cover.turn counterclockwise and pull to remove be careful there are 2 small tabs inside the pcv hole in the valve cover(can feel with small finger) this is to hold valve in place so it wont leak.if you have a oil leak at the pcv a quick fix is to put a small amount of silicone around the pcv o-ring and install.wait hours for silicone to set up.

hey try the idle control sensor not the idle air control valve. It should be by your throttle body

I'd be looking at removing IAC valve, and cleaning it out with throttle body spray cleaner, and checking mounting gasket as well. Usually some success with cleaning it & spray ports it came out of, but if not you may need to replace it.
