1988 Suburban with 5.7 TBI runs fine until warms up. Goes to fast idle and when it comes off fast idles won't start back until cools down.


Lets start at the beginning. Is the check engine light on ?
You have an idle air control valve which could be sticking open or shorted to ground. You should be able to unplug it to test. There also could be a gasket or hose that is opening up and causing a huge vac leak.

I have a 1988 F150 with a 302, the truck has a hard time finding a Idle


Many idling problems such as yours can be resolved by simply having the car tuned up ie , new air filter, change all spark plugs, oil change, etc... you'd be surprised by the outcome! Good luck.

DID YOU REMOVE ANY VACUUM LINES OR ANY THING NEAR THE THROTTLE LINKAGE AREA.OR DID YOU REMOVE ACCELERATOR LINKAGE MISROUTE IT CAUSE BINDING OR PULLING ON CABLE THIS WILL MAKE VECHICLE IDLE HIGH.

your throttle position sensor is maybe causing an overfuel,or the egr is plugged and when you rev it up,it is not burning the excess.if you leave it like that,the excess unburnt fuel will burn out your catalytic converter

Idles good, dies when i put it in gear


I had a very similar problem except I would have to throttle my truck just to keep it running. It wouldn't even idle. If I were you check the spray pattern on your fuel injectors. It should look like a nice misty cone. Youy dont want lage drips of fuel, you want a mist. Also cut into your fuel line to test your fuel pressure. It should be around 9-13 psi. My truck had 3psi. I then replaced the fuel pump and the problem was solved. Hope this works for you.
