1985 celebrity starts and idles then starts to idle higher and higher what:'s wrong

Sounds like either a vacuum leak, a TPS throttle position sensor, an AIC air idle control valve, or worst case scenerio, an intake manifold gasket. Try spraying brake cleaner directly onto intake manifold at the gasket. If idle lowers, that is the problem. Also spray all visible vacuum hoses and listen for idle drop. Listen for air hissing as well. Good luck let me know if these are good tips

Does back pressure have anything to do with vacuum in a 1989 ford f150 4.9 litre efi engine

Hi, Sounds like you have an air intake leak. Most likely a bad gasket on the manifold to the engine block. Replace with new one. Good luck.

Have a 98 bonneville.suddenly started losing antifreeze.than engine light came on blinking.the car shook and shut down.won t start.wondering if i should replace upper intake only.

i would get a compression check done on it,
if compression is fine you can get away with just the intake gasket
if you use dexcool i recommend mixing it 50/50 with distilled water
less chance of it becoming corrosive that way.

How do you take off the intake manifold on a 1985 ford F150 with a 302 engine EFI?

pull off the air plentum on top,which is about 8 small bolts,then the intake is easy accessible with about 16-17 bolts
