I experienced same problem. You have to clean the Idle Air Control Valve first. You have to check and replace the Idle Speed Sensor if the problem persists.

It seems as though you need an Idle Air Control Valve. Don't buy one from Advance Auto because of the price.

This small $45 item performs the following functions:

• Regulates the amount of air entering the engine during idle.
• When not replaced, vehicle could experience high or low idle, engine dies at idle and/or severe high idle possibly causing internal engine damage and safety issues.

I have a 1984 ford f150. The truck idles very high when in park but when you put in drive or reverse it goes down to normal. It has duel straight exhaust on it and I wonder if that could be the prob. Idk.


you didnt say if it was happening only during the initial warm up of the vehicle or all the time. if it is just during warm up this is not too unusual as long as the engine isnt racing. if it is just a "high idle", say arround 2,000 rpm's its normal. the idle would usually go down as the vehicle reaches operating temperature. when you put the vehicle in gear, you are actually loading the engine slightly, thats why the idle comes down then. when in park the engine has no load on it so it is free to rev a little higher at these times. if it a at a high idle constantly, then i would start looking for sticking throttle cable, binding throttle plates, ect and remedy the problem. this should not have anything to do with the dual exhaust.

During the summer time it will cut off sounds like it is loosing fuel pressure will turn over, but wont start back up until at least an hour later. Drives perfect during the winter time no problems,...


What causes this is ussually the oxygen sensor. It works when the engine heats up and if its no good, it will run your engine lean or even shut it down. check them and replace them. They should be done every 2 years.

Lack of power and rough idle


Is your "check engine" or "service engine soon" light on? Lacking power is usually an emission system problem, for instance possibly a bad EGR valve or mass air flow senser. O2 sensers are common to fault but normally doesn't cause power loss usually causes alittle rough idle. Could even be a pluged catalic converter to. have the truck plugged into a scanner, that will tell you the trouble codes and fault info.

Check engine light comes on for several seconds on 1998 Subaru La


if you didnt have the issue with the check eng before then I would take it back for them to reinspect the job. And at least have then put a scanner on it to check why the light is coming on at idle.

Van starts then check engine comes on sometimes.it also will sta


You need to find out what code is in the computer. Either have it scanned or flip the key on off on off on off on.(three times) The check engine light will flash to tell you the codes. ie 2 long flashes, followed by two short flashes would be code 22. It will repeat each code three times. It will start with code 12 and end with code 55. Code 12 is start code and 55 is end code. What ever codes come up between these codes, write them down and post.

Check your intake and exhaust modules. I have a 1987 D21 and had the same problem (if I understand your post). I replaced the modules located behind the driver side headlights and it fixed the problem. Good luck! I hope this helps.
