Question about 2004 Ford F150

1 Answer

My 2004 5.4L FX4 F150 is stalling out when I get to a stop light/sign, it also does when I go from park to reverse or reverse to drive. It idles very low and will sometimes feel like it is going to stall but then revs up to 1000 or but the needle will jump back and forth from 1500 to less than 1000. Please any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

2009 f150 fx4 engine starts, idles good then stalls after a few minutes

Any DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ? I would have the vehicle checked , could point you in the right direction an shorten your diagnostics . Your vehicle has a number of control modules , PCM , SJB , air bag , antilock brakes , instrument cluster , They all share information on a serial data communication bus . You could have one of any number of problems that could cause a stall condition . A shorted transmission range sensor , crankshaft position sensor . You could have a bad ground somewhere . Unless your an automotive electrical an electronics wizzard , I suggest you take it to a qualified repair shop .

Rough idle, rough in drive

Is the check engine light on ?
Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?
You could have one bad spark plug even with only 30k on it.
Problem could also be a dirty injector.

F150 stalls out at intersections.

Check there are no air leaks on the air intake system. - check all the clamps/hoses etc that may have been removed to replace airflow sensor.

Engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs

sounds like the torque converter lock up might not be disengaging. You might also want to check for engine vacuum leaks. Does engine idle smoothly when in park or nuetral ? if the idle is good I would suspect torque converter problem.
