Several issues can cause this problem, either singularly or in combination.. Check the throttle body for dirt and sticky carbon deposits. clean the throttle body using a spray can carburettor/choke cleaner, and with the throttle valve held open, wipe out the bore of the throttle body with a solvent soaked clean rag. Make sure the throttle valve is not sticking any where in the throttle travel between closed and open.

Next, check the idle air bypass valve that is mounted on the top of the throttle body, for dirt and carbon deposits inside that can cause the idle air bypass valve to stick in an open position. Clean the inside of the idle air bypass valve with carb cleaner.

If the ignition timing is over advanced, (Specifies timing advanced is10 degrees Before Top Dead Center, with the in-line spark out plug removed from the spout connector housing, and with the idle speed set to the idle RPM shown on the emissions sticker under the hood, with the engine fully warmed up,) use a timing light to check and set the ignition timing to specification.

The throttle position sensor must be installed on the throttle body using the required method or the idle speed will likely be excessively high. Beginning with the battery negative cable disconnected from the battery, and with the throttle position sensor removed, place the sensor in position on the throttle body with the drive tabs on the sensor placed after the drive tabs on the throttle shaft, the holding the sensor on the throttle body, rotate the sensor counter clockwise to align the mounting screw holes in the sensor and the throttle body, Insert the sensor screws into the senor screw holes, into the threaded holes in the throttle body and tighten finger tight. Carefully center the sensor on the sensor screws, then tighten the screws firmly without over tightening. Reconnect the sensor electrical harness connector.

Inspect the throttle valve idle stop screw adjustment that holds the throttle valve open slightly, to prevent the throttle valve from touching the throttle body bore surface with the throttle closed, and the accelerator pedal unpressed.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 auto idles good but will only move with it wide open or just barely any throttle


4.0L
what transmission, mines a 5 speed stick so?????
idles good, well that dont take much.
will only move, car moves?
with what wide open ,the throttle?
well just barely throttle is normal, why say that?

my guess is car has low power, or can not go fast in all gears.
is that it?
if yes, that is transmission slip or a weak engine,
transmission slip is easy RPM goes way high car dont move
weak engine acts like brakes stuck on , low RPM deep right foot.
post all symptoms and win, big time.

Failed emissions


High HCs means un burned fuel ie it runs rich at idle. Could be a egr valve partially stuck open. (it should be 100% closed at idle) could be worn out injector nozzles, could also be a sticky iac (idle air control) motor. But probably not a computer problem.

Why won't my 2004 Ford Taurus 3.0L idle?


Sounds like the EGR valve is stuck in the open position.Take it off and clean the off of it and make sure the pintle will open and close because it should be closed when the engine is at idle speed.If it is open at idle then it is allowing exhuast gasses in and will choke the motor out.

95 taurus stalls out when temperature exceeds 102. The temperature gage seems to be in the normal range , when this occurs. Once car has cooled off, it drives fine. I have read that the 95 Taurus has had...


your evaprative emissions could be purging into the engine at that point too, giving too rich a mixture.

here's what you are referring to:

ISSUE: A reduced power, hesitation, stalling at low vehicle speed, idling and/or a no start condition may occur on some vehicles in hot ambient temperatures and/or high altitudes. In addition, a no start may result while the engine is still hot and the vehicle has been parked for a short period. A stall may also occur when moving the vehicle from idle. This may be caused by a lack of vapor ports in the fuel pump, resulting in a vapor lock condition or internal high wear of the fuel pump components due to tank contaminants.
ACTION: Perform normal diagnostic routines as described in the appropriate year Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis Manual (PC/ED). If the condition still exists after all diagnostics are followed, replace the fuel pump with a new turbine fuel pump. Refer to the following Part Application Chart for correct part usage. Also, replace in-line fuel filter with a new filter (E7DZ-9155-A). The new turbine fuel pump will reduce the possibility of vapor lock in high ambient temperatures. Refer to the appropriate model/year Service Manual for removal and installation procedures.
