Why does my '88 Mercury Grand Marquis w/5.0 stall when put in gear?


I am thinking that the idle rpms are too low and the tune up is not good enough to compensate for the drop in rpms when the transmission is engaged
normal idle rpms on an automatic should be around 850rpms as they will drop 250rpms on gear selsction
any idle speed around 500 rpms will die when fear is engaged

94 jeep grand cherokee. starts,idle. throw warmup. as soon as I touch the excellerator let up the rpm drop & engine stalls.


Most low idle speed problems on these engines are due to a faulty idle air control valve but since you state the idle will go up and return to idle then i would say it is working properly i think you have a throttle body coking problem ( dirt and grit accumulates around the butterfly valve in the throttlebody ) to fix this simply remove the fresh air hose from the throttlebody and open the throttle all the way up use a clen rag and wipe clean you may use a solvent such as B12 on the rag but dont use too much 1_4_2013_4_54_06_am.jpg

98 Audi A6, Battery died overnight, when jumping smoke rises


Sounds like the alternator is badly damaged. The alternator will drain the battery if the regulutor or diode assembly goes out and/or the alternator is seized or locking up, which will cause the smoke (belt slippage) and drag on the engine (rough idle).

I figured out what was going on. supposedly on ford rangers the Idle Air Control Valve (IAC Valve) goes bad. i got a trouble code looked it up and sure enough it is the IAC Valve. Under 100 bucks for the part
