I have a 1995 ford f150 with a 6 cylinder engine. the truck idles high at all times. It hesitates when you stomp the accelarater and it has no power. It will not run at all when its above 90 degrees...

Check your Idle air control valve or EGR valve, unplug egr valve and if it idles down and smooths out then replace it, if nothing changes I would consider replacing the IAC.

92 Ford F150 4.9L. starts good, idles rough, dies at slow speeds

4.9 litre ?? you having a laugh its a 10ton truck engine not a pick up -global warming machine,remove the pump/sender unit and check the gauze filter also look inside tank for a something floating around ,i think the idles is not a related problem to the vehicle losing power but their is a possibility you could have a problem with the little vac operated thing on the fuel injector line that allows the fuel through only when the engine is running

2004 Ford Taurus wagon engine dies when first starting in the morning after idling for a several seconds. After it is warmed up this stops but it will continue to die whenever put in reverse. Does the idle...

idle speed is not adjustable on this engine, here is what i do for the probelm.

, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Truck idles in park but drops to about 500rpms and lower if idling in drive and dies.

sounds like the idle air control vavle. when you put a load on the engine such as putting it in gear or using the ac or turning sharply, the iac is suppose to let more air in so the engine will idle up a little. if its stuck and you load the engine by pulling it in gear it will let the idle drop and possibly die.

Car starts at high idle for a few seconds, When your driving it is fine but if you have to stop it idles really low and dies. It is a 200 Ford Focus XL.

check for any vaccum lines that may be unplugged.
then remove the air intake tube and clean the black carbon build up from around the throttle plate.use a clean rag only.i think whats happening is at an idle the plate is all closed but for just a little bit for the idle.carbon closes this off and is causing the engine to die at idle.
clean the carbon out very carfully and using some carb cleaner.

hope this helps
keep me posted

with the engine running lift hood and lisen for a vacum leak and check all your vacum lines. if no vacum leak can be found then replace the idle air control valve.

Check all of your vacume lines. If it isn't a vacume line it is most likely the O2 sensor.
