97 F150 5.4 high idle


The PCM (power control Unit) controls the idle speed base in input from various sensors, one of them it's the coolant temp sensor, this sensor may be telling the computer that the engine it''s too cold and the computer will keep the idle up to help the engine warm up faster

F150 stalls


I'm assuming the truck runs ok once it is warmed up. Sounds like you need to make some adjustments. The cold idle speed is set too high, and the choke is opening too fast. The cold idle should be around 1500 rpm and the choke should take at least 90 seconds to open depending on air temp.

1986 Nissan King Cab pick up. Runs good when giving gas, but cuts off at an idol. Have replaced Altenator.


Based on the information provided, it sounds like a bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). The TPS controls your idling speed under all conditions. When a TPS goes bad, you will usually notice the vehicle will idle when the engine is cold but once warm or with the AC on, it will sputter or stall.

1999 ford 5.4 liter v8 starts,stops for a second then goes to high idle or won't idle,when it won't idle, driving it for a while corrects no idle condition.


So you are saying for the most part that it won't idle until it gets warm? Sounds like the idle speed control motor is bad.

I want to adjust the idle on a 2003 ford f150


The engine Idle is adjusted by the PCM (power control module) If your having idle problem, cleaned the throttle body real good (just to make sure there wasn't a problem there) then do a "IAC relearn" by unhooking the battery, letting it sit for about 5 minutes, then hooked battery back up, let it idle for 3 mins, put in gear and held it there for 3 mins, and then neutral for 3 mins, then back into park. Go for a test drive and this should fix the problem.

When its warmed up, in park or in gear, RPMs are about 600-650 at warm idle. At cold its about 850 or so, Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

1986 Nova: engine stops while standing and at low RPM. OK before I got rear ended. Next start up: would not idle without revving. Next startup: OK but died while driving home; kick started without any...


Is the choke opening up all the way after it warms completly up ? and have you checked the fuel lines to the gas tank they might have got pinched in wreck.
