2002 Ford F250 v10 dies at idle

My truck starts up fine and runs great until it's idle. At stop lights, in park, reverse, etc. If I keep the accelerator on, it runs, but the minute my foot comes off, it dies. Any ideas?

You can try several things. I am going to say it is probably the TPS-Throttle Position Sensor. This is located on the airhorn and usually on the drivers side. The butterfly shaft connects to the TPS and the TPS is held on by 2 screws and has 1 electric connector. If this cures your problem you are okay, however if you still want more RPM, the opposite side of the butterfly flap has a set hex screw which will allow more RPM like a carb.

There is usually an elongnated slot on the TPS which can be slightly adjusted to help.

You can get a free scan at Autozone or Oreillys and see if anything coded.

no...the valve can be replaced without any "computer change"...the PCM constantly monitors variations in sensor signal strength and accommodates changes to compensate for this. A new valve will not "un-calibrate" the PCM. The PCM will merely begin a new "data record" for it....with possible slow results at first lasting from as short as one minute to possibly nearly a week of driving.

SOURCE: 99 F250 V10 Sputtering

It takes just one of the coil on Plug units to cause sputtering and severe shaking. Fortunately the prices have dropped slightly for the coil units. The bad news is it is still close to 100 bucks from the Ford dealers. I have had to replace 3 of these on my 1999 F250 superduty V-10 since I bought it new. I believe there may be some compatible aftermarket units out there for high performance V-8 engines, but can not confirm compatibility.

SOURCE: 2002 f250 v10 engine quits after warm up at idle only

DTC = P0720
footnote b = MIL (malfunction indicator light) comes on after 2nd occurance
footnote c = tranny control indicator light (TCIL) flashes
circuit = OSS = output shaft speed sensor in the tranny (not the variable speed sensor (VSS) in the diff).
condition = OSS sensor circuit malfunction
probable causes = Short/open circuit, sensor, PCM

My guess? Replacing the OSS will take care of it. smile.gif I hope you don't have a faulty PCM. frown.gif

I have a Ford 1990 f250 xlt 7.5 When starting revs up and down slowly then dies sometimes, why?


Clean the throttle body and idle air control motor(IAC) on the side of it. Mostly the IAC and the hole it sets in. Also check the air filter.

2001 f250 v10 dies while running reestarts ok


If this is happening when you foot is off the throttle, try this...........

First eliminate all vacuum or air leaks in the system (very important)

. You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If it still has a problem, replace the IAC.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

2002 Jeep Liberty - 3.7 Liter - Engine has begun to die when rpm is at or near idle. Such as pulling into a parking place or stopped at traffic light. More frequent after engine has warmed. Once engine...


I would start with cleaning the throttle bore and plate. Then clean the Idle Air Control valve, IAC, as this is the device that controls idle speed. Use a can of spray carb cleaner and an old toothbrush. Trouble with the IAC would make sense if you can keep the engine going by holding down the gas pedal a bit.
Use the carb cleaner to check for vacuum leaks at hose connections and elbows. run engine and spray short bursts at hoses and listen for idle speed changes.
And lastly if problem is still there check MAP sensor.

Truck has been dying surging and dying when i come to stop at li


Try shifting to nuetral at stop signs for now. Will it keep running in gear with you foot on the brake? How about with the parking brake? You may have a simple vacuum leak at the brake booster.

Starts fine when cold, after running dies on idle then wont start


Sounds like the fuel filter is dirty and needing to be changed. It's cheap and easy to swap out.

Truck starts but will not idle


IT COULD POSSIBLY BE THE INTAKE GASKETS. FORD HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE GASKETS GOING BAD. IF THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON AND GIVING YOU CODES PO171 AND PO174 I WOULD CHECK THE GASKETS BY SPRAYING CARB. CLEANER AROUND THE INTAKE WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING. IF THE IDLE SPEEDS UP THEN THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM.
