2002 ford explorer 4.6 liter is idling at 3000 rpm after starting


The idle should stabilize within about 10 seconds. If the engine continues to idle over 1000 r.p.m. for more than 60 seconds, try resetting the ECU by disconnecting the negative terminal to the battery for one minute, then try again. If the problem persists, check the following:
  1. Operation of the Idle Air Controller;
  2. Operation of the throttle mechanism and throttle butterfly (adjust the back-stop if needed);
  3. Operation of the Throttle Position Sensor;
  4. Check for leaking vacuum hoses or a leaking intake manifold.
If all systems check out, have your ECU tested and replace if defective.

1994 Ford Ranger Starts runs for 3-4 minutes then dies, changed ignition mod, fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay,checked vac hoses, totally lost!!!!!


As with any no-start or stall problem you will need to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition issue.
The high idle usually means you have a vac leak or a problem with the throttle body or idle air control valve. The control valve is how the computer controls the idle speed.
You'll need to watch the fuel system and spark to see which is being affected when the engine dies.
You might want to hook a test light up to the coil to see if it is loosing voltage for example.

If you hear air in the engine, there must be a leak somewhere.
Check all the vaccum hoses for bad ones or dissconnected ones. All it takes is a pin hole in these darn emission systems to screw up the whole system.
It could also be a leaking intake manifold gasket.

I am guessing here w/o much info, 1 of maybe 4 things, idle speed contoller motor, low fuel pressure, dirty air filter, or lastly, carbon buildup on the throttle body throat. When cold idle the carbon blocks off the little needed air and the engines will run rough or just die.
