SOURCE: the idle goes high and low
there was a tsb on those for the neutral switch. it can cause all sorts of funky problems. usually you get a check eng. light with egr code and imrc code. can cause erattic idle, stalling, and alot of confusion. it is located behind a bracket under the transmission. you can check continuity wile putting the shifter in and out of gear. also there in a tsb on the clutch pedal switch that can do the same thing. you can look under the dash and make sure that the rubber stopper is completely engaging an diengaging the switch, and you can check continuity there as well. hope this helps you... dustang

The battery is there to start the vehicle, once running the alternator takes over and provides the power for all electrical. It sounds like your alternator went out on you. Thats is where I would start. Hope this helps

Testimonial: "Thank you very much. I'll start there. "
I sounds like the choke is not adjusted properly or the linkage for the fast idle cam is sticking. The fast idle cam is on the right side (passenger side) of the carb kind of behind the choke assembly. It could be the choke pull-off is not working or is not adjusted properly. Does the choke open all the way when the vehicle is fully warmed up? If not I'm guessing the choke stat (black plastic round) is not working or is installed wrong. Does that one have a wire going to the stat, is there 12V there when engine is running? That gets power direct from the alternator and will only have power there when the engine is running.
