Question about Ford Freestar
Posted by Anonymous on
A vacuum leak can cause unmetered air to bypass the MAF resulting in a high idle. Check for any leaking/disconnected vacuum lines/hoses. Make sure the throttle cable is not binding/sticking if equipped with one

A bad tps, map sensor, or such- could just be the cold idle sensor

on the passenger side of the engine you will see 2 small metal rods at the top of the engine just below the intake manifold there are little white clips that hold the rods on these clips usually break and the rods come off

A common problem on Windstars, there are two IMRC valves, the only way to fix them is replacement, which is not that hard. They are mounted on the end of the intake manifold and control runner length. There is a front and rear one, I'm not sure which one this is but you'll probably have to go to Ford to buy it and they should be able to tell you with the code number. The problem will not affect driveability that much, but if you have emissions testing at your location, this will likely cause it to fail.

you don't have to replaced the manifold just the runner control. see this all the time at work the part is about 175.00 and an hour and a half to install. your local dealer should be able to fix this for you

There is a heater core bypass pipe that runs from the block (under the manifold) to the bacl of theengine where you will see a flat rectangular "sheet metal" thing with a pipe coming out of it. The a rubber hose connects. You need to pull the top air plenums and intake to get to it. The p[ipe flange bolts to the block with silicone rtv as a sealant.
