Question about Ford F
I own a Ford Mondeo 1994 automatic 2.0. Recently, I encountered a problem regarding the idle. Everytime I take a reverse and coming from the stoplight, the engine stops ( the idle goes down until the engine stops ). I have already replaced the plugs but the problem still remains. What is wrong with my car and what should I do with it? Thanks!
I will offer advice on any engine idle down to a stop. If you have to feather the throttle on a gas engine at idle to keep it running it may/should be a air gas ratio problem. I would first get an obd-2 scan tool (borrow one or try to quick use one from an auto parts store). If you have a lit engine light it will give you solutions in the form of a code that you can reference online. I have had this issue on a 95 LeBaron and I was led to replace the EGR solenoid (Exaust gas recirculator). What happened in my case was that a vacuum line on the part micro cracked and let air and water into the transducer (electric component on sensor) and basically fried it. Now what that did was not make the air to fuel mixture change to proper idle setting ( on idle my car thought I was driving at highway speeds therefore putting to much air in the mix for it to idle or vice versa,too rich). I replaced the part (70+$ at the dealer for part) it was an extremely easy two bolt install and the new vacuum line which is dirt cheap sometimes free. I was back in business and problem went away. I just want to say don't assume it's the same part for you but vacuum leaks cause issues and cause a dominoe effect that can lead to goofy issues so check lines,sensors, and leaks. Everything has a fix and always ask a knowledgeable person for advice or for help. Good luck!

Check your muffler for blockage. Does the engine heat up? A blocked muffler will allow an engine to run but acceleration is almost impossible.
