Dear 24scott,

This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.

If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling!

It's most likely bad fuel or clogged injectors so....
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors!
Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.

If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
This Should FixYa!

1997 ford expedition will start but wont stay running unless you hold your foot on the gas pedal. Replaced mass airflow sensor because that's the code that came up. Doesn't do it all the time.


if code keeps coming up re check sensor and connections and if not done replace air filter ----if good than check fuel prssure sometimes clodding fuel filter can cause same problem and set off sensor

Engine starts, but won't idle, after I take foot off the gas


you may have an issue with the air idle control valve that allows air in the motor when you haVE your foot of the gas oedal. well it is actually an air pedal because it let more air in when you press on it and the computer gives it more gas. so if it runs and idles when your foot is on it and it won't if it is off then the air flow is getting cut off totaly and i would look at that idle air control valve or (iacv) good luck

Engine starts but wont stay running, 1998 ford 5.4 litre 125,000 miles. will run with foot on gas (wont idle)


Replace the throttle position sensor, this sensor controls idle speed and is most likely faulty.

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.
