Question about Cars & Trucks
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 Amazon.com 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

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.

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.
