Question about 1993 Ford F150 SuperCab

Open Question

Have a 1993 ford f150, 5.8. Engine light would come on when idling and would go off when I gave it gas. Now light is staying on and automatic transmission is shifting hard in all gears. Any suggestions? Trying to prevent from having to take it somewhere to be fixed. Did take it to Auto Zone to be tested. Not too sure about reading. was having trouble operating it and thought that it was a trouble code 998 . Thought I might have a vacuum leak due to light going off when giving it gas, but now I have no clue where to start. Thanks for any assistance given.

SOURCE: auto trans shifting VERY HARD, possible cause?

It could be several things but I will give you a few ideas anyways to try and avoid the costly Ford dealer mechanics. Check your transmission fluid to make sure that it is full and that is still good and red. You may also want to just go ahead and change your transmission fluid but when you do so remove your transmission pan. Inside your transmission pan is your automatic transmission fluid filter screen. Make sure to clean it thoroughly and put back on filling the transmission with new fluid. Cleaning the screen is probably the most likely thing that will help. You also might want to consider using a transmission fluid additive that will help it shift easier. I've had pretty good luck with Lucas's products. Hope this helps. Be sure to let me know how it goes and if you need more help clarifying. Goodluck.

1993 ford escort automatic 4cylinder idles rough occasionally. No check engine light I just need advice on what it may be it runs excellent once I put it in gear and go


This is often caused by hard engine mounts and a dirty idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Clean the intake following these instructions, that should improve the idle issue.
Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes.

Car wont stay on you let go of the gas and it dies


Check the idle air control valve its right on the front of the throttle body it may be stuck closed and not allowing air to bypass the throttle plate to allow the engine to idle, do you have a check engine light on at all, there could be a number of sensors that could have a problem not allowing the engine to idle when the throttle plate is closed like the idle air control valve, throttle position sensor......

Try getting the codes pulled at a car parts shop. Usually the computer will keep it in its history. It sounds like it is an ignition problem. If there is no stored code I would look at things in this order: spark plugs, ignition wires, distributor/coil. If none of these seem to be the problem you may have to take it to a shop. If it was just the start and idle problem I would say it is something with what I said but that high RPM thing seems strange.

listen for a hissing noise(vacuum leak around the pcv elbows or upper intake gaskets) this will cause a high idle set off lean codes which will say bad o2 sensors alson check idle air control valve which is located by throtlle body this will stick causing the vehichle to not run at idle sometimes taking it off and cleaning the carbon buildup out will fix the problem use some break cleaner

1990 Ford Probe 2.2 automatic stalls in forward, reverse OK


Sounds like a bad IAC (idle air control valve/sensor) that controls your idle when going from throttle to idle. If bad your idle will act crazy and can cause stalls easily. Pretty sure that's it.

Rough idle; engine light appeared


I had that problem with my 2005 FX4 turned out to be a coil on #6 cylinder I replaced the coil my self and the light went out coil was $58.00.These trucks are sensitive to water in the gas you may want to add gas line antifreeze or isopropyl alcohol to your gas every other tank to displace any water which may be getting in there.
