00 lincon navigator 5.4 oil pressure drop's low and light comes on , engine idles rough when pressure drops ,then pressure return s to normal range ,light goes out ,engine runs perfect. Is it my oil


Sounds more like an engine idle issue than a oil pressure issue. If the engine idle drops too low, the oil pump cannot provide sufficient oil pressure. If there is no oil light when the engine is idling normally, then there is no problem there.

How do you change the idle speed on 2004 aviator??


Due to the use of computers to operate the engine, idle speed cannot be changed. There should be an idle sensor either on or near the air intake hose coming in to the engine. Typically, when the idle is too high or too low, it is a faulty idle sensor.

I have a 1996 lincoln mk Viii, i was driving and the car went completely dead, I got a jump, made it home, lights kept going dim, so i figured it was the altenator, I replaced the altenator with one from...


you replaced it with one from the junkyard. Who's to say the car in the junkyard didn't have the same issue before it died? Anyway, the check engine light and low idle may be attributed to the fact that the ECM lost all power to it, and when the vehicle is running and ECM loses power, it will throw a check engine light. Also now the ECM will need to relearn it's idle and various other parameters that take a lil time. (15 miles or so) I would have the check engine light checked to see which code you have. Also make sure the air suspension is not leaking. That is the number 1 killer of alternators on mark viii's.

High idle miss fire


check that routing of your throttle cable going to the top of the engine, sounds like it may be dry (no lube) or kinked somewhere. also check for a bent bracket where it would go through.
