SOURCE: Checked Fuel Pressure Regulator on 93 Ford Tempo GL 2.3 Liter.

As far as I know without checking it personally it sounds like it could be one of three things (in order from easiest to hardest). Clogged air filter, worn timing chain, leaking head gasket. To check for the third go to Auto Zone and get them to do a compression check, its free. I can't remember off hand but if the 93 has a TPS (throttle position sensor) that could also cause an irratic idle.

SOURCE: 2001 ford 4.6 liter idles rough sometimes dies

may need 1 0r more coil packs replaced,or it could be what happened to my 2000 4.6---1 lifter expanded out and wouldnt collapse,causing the rocker arm to fall out of place and the valve could never open...try unplugging 1 coil pack at a time while running and listen for a change in the way it runs,if there isnt a change then its probably a bad coil pack,find a cylinder that runs and swap the coil packs,if no difference then its probably the valve staying shut.

If this is a 2004 Heritage ( old body style ) and the transfer case is known to lock in ( check with truck jacked up, shift into 4WD and try to turn front drive shaft ), the next item to look at is the vacuum disconnect motor for the front axle. This is on the front axle, and will move when shifted into 4WD

It is item #10, on this parts diagram
If you do not have movement in this, check the vacuum lines with a vacuum pressure gauge, to see if vacuum is being applied ( Pink line is 2WD w/ vacuum is operation, Blue line is 4WD w/ vacuum operation ). If no vacuum at the lines, check them back to the vacuum shift solenoids

Where is the fuel pressure regulator located on a 1988 Dodge B-150 van, 5.2 liter? I've been told it's on the fuel rail. Where is the fuel rail?

If you have throttle-body fuel injection, you don't have a fuel rail. The fuel pressure regulator should be mounted to throttle body.

Follow the throttle cable to the throttle body. Look on the opposite side of the throttle body from where the cable attaches. Thats the throttle position sensor.

    Truck runs smooth but when you stop at a stop light or stop sign it will die sometimes

    I recommending cleaning the idle air control valve. It get clogged with black carbon and doesn't work properly. It is easy to do and cheap. I understand it should be done periodically. I cleaned my husband's Ford F-150 IAC valve and solved the problem he has been having for, literally, years. My Toyota highlander '02 started acting up and I cleaned mine...worked like a charm. You use throttle body cleaner (spray).
