Your throttle body should have an adjustment screw on the linkage...this usually indicates there is another problem causing a bad idle...try air filter, clean fuel injectors with gas additive and add liquid "heet" to gas tank to dissolve bad gas (water) in your tank...then try spray cleaning the throttle body too. Find the cause, instead of trying to adjust...:)

SOURCE: I need a wiring diagram

2 possible solutions: Either pick up the Haynes manual from local parts store or or stop by local Ford dealer - parts dept should be able to provide or make you a copy of wiring diagram. Diagrams are getting hard to find free these days online and even harder for older cars.

SOURCE: My Ford Explorer Sport 1998

It seems like this 98 is well known for this, i have a 98 as well and never had this problem YET? god i shouldnt have said it. but in my fuse cluster on the side of dash inside behind drivers door is a fuse in the 26 th position (10 A) that says its the electronic shift relay,electronic shift control module,power window relay,interior lamp relay,battery saver relay. CHECK THIS FUSE, also pos 27, ( 15A) it says DLR,back-up lamp switch,DTR sensor, GEM, (generic electronic module) ELECTRIC SHIFT. check this fuse also. Under the hood by the battery there is another fuse box inside there is a "POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE' I dont know what this is but it says what it says, it is located in the # 6 position and is a 10a fuse...." Be careful if you rev the gas as if it does engage you could do damage to drivtrain, also if someone is under,in front of or behind the vehicle and engages " POSSIBLE DEATH or SEVERE INJURIES could occur. Be safe and good luck

SOURCE: How do I reset my computer in my 1998 ford

First clean the idle air control valve with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and a wire brush or replace it then reset your computer by either using a scan tool,or pulling the ECM fuse out then put it back or take the ground cable off the battery for 30 seconds.The IAC Valve is whats causing it to idle high.

SOURCE: how to adjust idle on ford falcon el 6 cylinder

wam the car up, disconnect the idle speed control valve wiring plug (idle control valve sits on top of the throttle body) then set the idle to 700rpm with the grub screw stop just above where the throttle cable fits to the throttle body. Reconnect theidle control valve and you're done. It may take a few k's driving for the ECU to relearn the new throttle stop position. The idle speed control valve is only used by the ECU to add idle speed when extra load is put onto the engine such as power steering or air con use, the base idle is set mechanically on the old falconns.

My 65 mustang stalls whenever i stop then it starts right back up

Hello Larry,

Without the car running... You should be able to open
the throttle.. and literally DROP it back to idle...

Observe the action of the THROTTLE RETURN
T should visibly SLOW the RETURN
of the throttle linkage like a door closer...

If you do not SEE the slowess... the dashpot
should be replaced (they are getting SCARCE).


You will need to have the THROTTLE RETURN DASH-POT
on your (unspecified) carburetor
tested and adjusted... and the IDLE SPEED correctly set.

Idle Speed and a slow rate of RPM reduction is
critical to the proper function...

Some LESSOR "mechanics" will attempt to raise the
IDLE SPEED to compensate for a malfunctioning
DASHPOT... This will PROFOUNDLY exacerbate
the problem.

Throttle return dashpot (various pictures)
Go to Bing homepage

example DASHPOT (six cylinder)

example 1968 302/5.0L: Falcon, Mustang 2BBL carb
Carter 202 737 Carburetor Dashpot Ford 2 BBL Carburetors Replaces D7ZZ...

Hope this helps

I have a ford falcon ute 2000 straight lpg from factory.the car runs well but stalling when on idling. please advice what needs to be done.

Sound like a problem in the LPG system - Take it to a LPG Specialist/Auto Electrician - will save a lot of heartache and probably a lot of money - nothing like advise from someone that knows what he is doing ??? Forget the local mechanic.

My 1983 ford ltd is stalling when I come to a stop. If I am not constantly giving it gas it wants to shut off. Help!

It could be dirt in the idle jet or a problem with the idle solenoid. what should solve the problem and generally improve the performance and economy of the vehicle is a tune up and possibly a service. This will iron out all those niggly problems.

Ford f150 1986

The firing order for the 4.9 L engine is 1-5-3-6-2-4, with the firing order rotation on the distributor cap going clockwise. For the 5.0 & 7.5 L engines, the order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8, and the 5.8 L engine is 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. On all three of these engines, the distributor cap firing rotation is counterclockwise. Also, on the six cylinder 4.9 L engine, the cylinders are in a "straight six", with #1 cylinder starting in front, and going in order straight back to #6. The eight cylinder engines' cylinders all fire in order also, (standing in front of the vehicle looking back towards the firewall) with #1 being front on your left and going straight back to #4, and then #5 being at front right, going straight back to #8, with the distributor being front and center. Hope this helps you out.
