Service engine soon is on and the truck idles low when cranked.


Take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve the fault code(s) stored in the computer. Most stores offer this service at no charge. The codes will help identify the problem. Sounds like a faulty Idle Air Control (IAC) valve to me, but the codes will narrow the reason down. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Is the engine light on? Check the air inlet hose between the throttle body & MAF sensor for cracks or leaks. Try unplugging the MAF & see if there is any difference

Dies when idling, does better with a/c on, but still dies


this is your problem:

Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
