Question about 1984 Ford F 250
I have a 1984 Ford F250 pick up truck with a 5.8L engine. my problem with this truck is that when I start her up I have to keep my foot on the gas, otherwise she will not idle and shuts off. i notice that it has a carburator solenoid with a vacuum hose attached. i also noticed a loose blue wire but don't know where it goes. Does the carburator solenoid work strickly with vacuum or does it need electric to function. Is there a diagram of this carburator available online to download and compare or am I aiming at the wrong solution?
Mcdevito75, That carb, solonoid most likely works with both, electricity and vacum, That blue wire should hook up to that solonoid, look at the plug ans solonoid and see if there"s a point for the wire. If it has broken off yo"ll have to replace the solonoid. Also have the choke system on your truck checked out, if the choke is not operateing as it should this too can cause your problem. Have your local repair shop take a look.
