SOURCE: 2003 Ford Expd. running rough @ idle -

There could be many issues. These codes read your engine is running too lean. Check : all your vacuum hoses for leaks, PCV valve and hose, MAF sensor. This may require an experienced technician to figure this out. Hopefully I help'd!!

SOURCE: I have a 2000 ford

There is an idle control valve in the air intake circuit that gets dirty. Ford says not to clean this valve but to replace it. However cleaning seems to work for me.

1997 ford taurus, it had brought up codes for the o2 sensors we replaced them, it keeps saying it is to lean. we went through and thoroughly cleaned everything even the new spark plugs, wires coilpack,...


Check vacuum lines. Replace as needed. Clean the throttle body, inside of it. Use brake clean and a tooth brush. Clean the back side of the throttle plate and where it setts in the throttle. Clean the MAF sensor, just spray this down on both sides. Don't use a brush on this. You could break it. Once done cleaning, leave the MAF off. Start the car, it will take a second or two. Rev the engine up and spray brake clean into the throttle, not so much to kill the engine. Do this two or three times. Then put it back together.

2000 ford taurus engine light came on. car idles real low when we come to a stop . to keep from the engine stalling out we put it in neutral and give it a little gas.


Check coil pack they can go bad even when not many miles. Also check plugs. Check the code see if it is a misfire. Vulcan or Duratec engine?

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

My Ford Focus is a 2000, and a lot of times it shudders violently when I'm idle or under 1000 RPM. Only once have I had it actually kill the engine. For now I've been keeping my foot on the gas...


replace the iack (idel air control valve) this controls you air to fuel mixture when can is just idleing
when you use the gass peddle to keep rpms us this over rides the iack just replace it and it should be ok

Car stalls at stop signs


will it re-start right back up?
next time try to keep your foot on the gas pedal to see if it stay running ( be careful when you do this, if you give too much gas the car will over come the brake and cause accident )
if it stay running then you need to replace an idle air control valve
