Idle Air control valve is the typical problem on all fords, I'd check that as the first thing, a vacuum leak as well, or a bad egr valve, my number one guess is IAC MOTOR. It's easy to replace too, although around sixty or seventy bucks

You'll need to change the distributor, as the distributor shaft oil seal has gone bad. Without sufficient spark, you'll have no power. Don't forget a new cap/rotor.

F100 pickup stalls out when coming to a stop. It restarts and drives fine. I've rebuilt the carb., changed the fuel filters and line, and replaced the gas tank and sending unit. What am I missing or do i...


It might be the float but if you don't have any trouble getting the truck up to speed then it's likely fine. The trouble is more likely to be in the idle circuit. The curb idle should be 500 to 750 RPM depending on if it's standard or automatic ( higher for auto). If that's okay then you may have to play with the idle screws. Turn them both the same amount, 1/4 turn at a time. Turn them once and then rev the engine 2 or 3 times and let it idle down suddenly. You will have to re-adjust the curb idle to keep it at the right spot as well.
If the truck is an automatic, once you have it set up so it runs right then put it in gear and try again although that will probably only need the curb idle adjusted if it stalls. hope this helps.

My moms 1999 ford contour just had the alternator replaced and now the car will start but wont stay running?


did you have the battery checked also? did you reconnect all wires to the alternator? sometimes there is an electrical connector that plugs into the alternator. If this is unplugged in the alternator will not charge the battery and car will die once battery is dead.

2002 chrysler concorde lx low idle


with a 2002 Concord 3.5 V-6, what should the rpm be at 60mph? 70 mph?

I'm not sure if the overdrive gear is lost in the tranny, but the transmission light is on.

Thanks

Check Engine Light is on. Pops O2 sensor but car is acting funny.


This sounds like the loss of electrical power because of the lights.Any chance of a broken engine/transmission mount allowing to much movement and breaking a connection? Along this same line, look for a vacuum leak that occurs while in gear. If the o2 sensor code is for a lean condition a vacuum leak could case it and the drivability condition /stalling you are getting. Hope this helps and rate me please!!

1999 suzuki swift stalling problem


could be a sticking idle air control valve... a little cylinder on the side of your throttle body.. it helps control your idling air fuel ratio.. this goes bad could cause your problems... also easy for you to replace... normally 2 small bolts and a harness.. usually run about 35-85 dollars.. check price and if it's about 35 or so.. i'd go ahead and change it anyways.. 9 years it's probly due.. :D
