Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

1999 Ford Explorer XLT rough idle at startup

Have problem where rpms would drop to less than 500 when pulling out of driveway then when giving gas would almost die then kick in this problem went away after driving for a few minutes. I checked the throttle body and it is clean only 69000 miles on Explorer so I replaced the Idle Speed Control Valve now the problem is worse does the same thing it did before but every time from a stand still. What would be the next step.

Thank

Brian

    It is definatley not a lifter issue. Once you drive away from a stop and it gets going no problems. It is something in the air induction system I am going to test the MAF sensor and see if that helps.

    I would take it to somebody for them to check the lifter arms.

1993 Ford explorer.Began idling rough and surging


The test connector is in a holder at the back bottom of the fuse/relay box on the passenger side fender well. There are 2 parts to it: the main connector and the ground, you will need both connected to the diagnostic tool to get the codes.
Check your IAC (Idle Air Control) valve on the side of the intake. These get carbon fouled and tend to stick causing high rpm for extended times. Also the EGR valve should be checked (under the intake) as it will cause rough idle or stalling near idle.

Rough idling on cold starts until the engine is


Very probably needs a general tune up to set the timing properly.
