SOURCE: wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

Sounds like a vaccuum, or gasket leak. Easiest way to diagnose is to get a can of starting fluid and spay it around any vacuum hoses and intake area while it's running. Be careful! Starting fluid is extremely flammable!

If you notice an acceleration, or de-celeration while spraying the starting fluid, you should be able to pinpoint the leak.

SOURCE: 1994 ford escort vibrates horribly in idle.

Your Idle air control valve is probably going bad. It is located on the throttle body and is a relatively easy fix as it is only held in with 2 screws. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: car will not idle must keep foot on gas pedal or it cuts off

Check the EGR operation. If this valve is leaking it will cause your symptoms.

Ford Econovan 89 1.8L Gas Engine turns on fine, once i turn key to start. smooth idle nothing sounds wrong once i give it a little gas while holding the the gas pedal down a little it stalls and...


There are many things that can cause this. Do you have a check engine light on? Have your mass airfow sensor checked, also the throttle position sensor. Have your fuel pressure, and volumn checked, also the fuel pressure regulator. If that all checks out ok, suspect a restricted cat. converter. There is an inexpensive backpressure test that most shops can perform.

Difficulty starting when warm, OK when cold


Have you checked the fuel pressure regulator for leaks into the intake

My 97 ford expadition sounds like its locking in to 4weel drive and the light on the dash gose on but it dosent work


If i'm not mistaken the 97 Expadition's have automatic locking hubs and they are the most likely problem. To find out for sure you need to use a chain or strap strong enough to fasten to a tree or some other object that will not move lock in the 4wd and have some one watch the front drive shaft while you give enough gas to make the tires spin, if the front drive shaft spins and the front tires don't you have a bad hub if it does not your transfer case is not engaging which is most likely a bad servo motor. I hope this helps you with your problem.
