Sounds like the idle control valve is sticking. it is located at the throttlebody at the air inlet. try tapping on it and see if the idle goes up

What is the schedule replacement mileage for a 2003 Ford Escape Timing Chain


If your car has a chain there is not a scheduled replacement. A timing chain should last as long as the engine. No need to replace the chain. Now things can happen such as a guide wearing out or a drive / driven gear wears out, then a chain should be replaced. You do not need to replace a chain under normal usage. *** Now the 2000 - 2004 Escape with a 2.0L (4 cylinder) does have a BELT and yes, belts should be changed (Ford recommends) every 60,000 miles or 7 years which ever comes first.

F100 pickup stalls out when coming to a stop. It restarts and drives fine. I've rebuilt the carb., changed the fuel filters and line, and replaced the gas tank and sending unit. What am I missing or do i...


It might be the float but if you don't have any trouble getting the truck up to speed then it's likely fine. The trouble is more likely to be in the idle circuit. The curb idle should be 500 to 750 RPM depending on if it's standard or automatic ( higher for auto). If that's okay then you may have to play with the idle screws. Turn them both the same amount, 1/4 turn at a time. Turn them once and then rev the engine 2 or 3 times and let it idle down suddenly. You will have to re-adjust the curb idle to keep it at the right spot as well.
If the truck is an automatic, once you have it set up so it runs right then put it in gear and try again although that will probably only need the curb idle adjusted if it stalls. hope this helps.

Starting issues


Had the same problem on our '99 Explorer.It turned out the battery was on it's way out, and without keeping a foot on the gas for awhile, the thing would die as it appeared that too much of the charge was going into trying to charge the battery, leaving not enough to supply the ignition at an idle. It would run once it warmed up a bit, but a new battery cured the problem.

So, dose it need a jump start every time? Have you tested your battery? Look, I'm suggestioning that your battery is messed up and your alternator is working now. Start your truck, and unhook the battery, if the engine keeps running, it's not your altenator or regulator. If it dies, then it's likely the regulator.
