The check engen light should be on if it's a fuel prob. or other senser such as an idle air controll valve. If no light is on, clean the throttle body and add fuel system cleaner.

Why should the truck shut down at a low idle or when u apply the brake to it the idle slows down an it cuts off on a 1992 ford f150

In some cases, the throttle body is dirty or the iac valve is faulty.

Truck will not idle

This has a idle air controll motor located on top of the engine in the intake manifold should take a 8mm socket to remove. You can spray brake clean inside after it is removed to clean sometimes this goes bad. Symtoms also include idle up and down. Also if it just shuts off it could be your ingition module bolted to your distrubter 5.5mm socket to remove.

2004 ford f150 idle goes up and down also when you brake at a stop rpm goes very low to almost shutting down

hi, i would venture to say that you have an air leak somewhere, ie; a split in a vacumn hose or the like check all your hoses on the intake side for bad fit or splits. hope this helps, thanks for useing fixya!
