2007 ford sport trac 4.0 v6 rough idle was told this truck has no IAC? New plugs wires cleaned throttle body been smoke tested no vacumm leaks rpms jump when cold level off once warm no hesitation


Not having an IAC would only affect idle speed. A rough idle could be a weak coil, or injector among other things. It takes more spark and fuel to fire a cylinder when the engine is cold.
Are you getting a trouble code for any one cylinder ?

I have a1995 GEO prism it runs good but when I let off of the throttle it won't idle unless I keep my foot on the throttle


Clean the throttle body and idle air control motor. Just a cheap start. Could be the engine is old and tired.

2000 nissan sentra manual transmission 1st and 2nd gear misfiring....


Sounds like you have a major misfire problem. The light is flashing because the ecm has determined that the problem is severe enough to cause damage to something. If your engine light flashes it is a warning not to drive the vehicle. I'm assuming this is a four cylinder. My guess would be that only two of the cylinders are actually producing any power. I would need the following details to help you further. How many miles are on this engine? Has the necessary factory maintenance schedule been maintained? In other words have the appropriate parts been changed and serviced to keep this engine performing properly. Many things could be causing your issues. Do the necessary maintenance first, like spark plugs and whatever the manufacturer requires and see what happens. If this does not help I can help you with the rest.

I have a 2001 Ford Escort. It was idling rough and starting to cut out when sitting at stop lights. I changed the plugs and within a week the Check Engine light came on. It is still idling rough but not...


Well the misfire in Cylinder 3 will commonly be that your plug has gone bad. If that is the only code that it is throwing out then it could be an array of things going on. It sounds though that you may have a throttle position sensor out or that you have your idle speed set too low. You will still have great response when gas is applied but sitting at lights the idle will be rough and sometimes bounce up and down.
