Question about 1998 Ford Escort
I have a '93 Camry with the 3VFE 3.0 V6. It will not idle after coming
up to operating temperature. From reading your past advice, I removed
and cleaned the IAC valve. It was pretty fouled, so suspected it was
the culprit. After a long test drive including highway speeds,
stopping at a red light would cause it stall again. But during cold
start up the car performed well, and idled at about 1100 rpm. I
jumpered the TE1 and E1 diagnostic ports, and got only the normal mode,
continuous flashing light. Do you have any further advice? I
appreciate any help you can give me. This is a great site because of
the many helpful people on here like you. Thanks again.
Since there is no check engine light the problem is mechanical and not related to the EFI system with the exeption of a faulty air flow meter which in most cases will not trigger a check engine light, but before replacing this expensive part you need to check for any air leaks on the intake side, check for any loosenes or cracks in the large intake hoses from the air filter to the throttle body also check for any other possible vacuum leaks on the intake system.
