2007 ford explorer sport trac 4.0 ruff idle was told it was it was a misfire but no cel or codes what kinda misfire causes no cel or throw a code done a tune up and cleaned throttle body didn't help

vacuum leaks will cause rough idle and are not always reported in codes
check vent control vacuum hoses, transmission vacuum actuator hose
if it is electronic there will be codes stored and so I have to ask , is the correct procedure being used in connecting the scanner

Why does Van die when you turn the steering wheel?

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Dies when comeing to stop iduling ruff

Is the check engine light on ? If so you should have the computer scanned for trouble codes first. The codes will point you in the direction to look for the problem.
You may have two different problems. Engine dies at a stop is usually a dirty throttle body or problem with the idle air control valve. Running rough could be a long list of things.

Low idle on a 97 caviler 2.4

You should have an idle air control valve screwed into the side of the throttle body.
The computer uses this valve to regulate idle speed depending on engine load.
The valve could be dirty or faulty, or the throttle body could be dirty.

1989 1 ton chevy van model 30 automatic trans, dies when turn to the right, someone put a new ing. switch in it, and you can can pull the tumbler out with the van running, may be hitting something when you...

OK check for any obstruction that might play a part in obstructing free movement of the steering mechanism when turning right. Next compare the ends of the left and right hands end of the steering rack The steering arms are held in the middle of the steering rack ends by a doughnut shaped bush bearing. If this has been damaged the rack will be dragging on the inside of the casing when the steering is turned in one direction. It could be that the end bearing on the left is shot and this is what is obstructing the turn to the right. The next thing to take care of is the fact that you have the engine stalling under load. This points to an idle speed control problem. Check that the throttle body interior and throttle plate are really clean and that the idle speed control valve on the throttle body is actuating properly. If suspect unbolt and give this a thorough interior clean out.

Idle at 250 rpm

Idle Speed Control (ISC) Motor OPERATION Eagle Throttle Body Fuel Injection (TBI) System NOTE: The Eagle TBI system is used only on 2.5L Premier engines. The Idle Speed Control (ISC) motor is mounted to the throttle body and controlled by the PCM. The throttle lever rests against the initial adjustment screw of the actuator (plunger). The idle speed is not adjustable. The initial adjustment screw is only used to establish the initial positioning of the actuator when the ISC motor has been replaced. The actuator extends or retracts to control engine idle speed and to set throttle stop angle during deceleration. Based on inputs from the various engine control system sensors and switches to the PCM supplies current to the ISC motor to adjust the actuator position for the particular operating conditions.

Throttle body removed and replaced

I'm not a chevy guy, but I think you need to reset the throttle position sensor (TPS) once it's disconnected.

For idle, the throttle plate is almost closed with just a little air getting through. For more air, an IAC idle air control valve lets more air in to maintain an ilde speed. The TPS tells the engine computer when the throttle plate is closed and then the computer tells the IAC to let more or less air in to maintain idle.

So, as long as you reconnected all the connectors you took off, I'm guessing you just need to make some readjustments. Calling your Chevy dealer service department, they can tell you if that's true.
