Question about 2000 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

My son's 2000 Ford GT 4.6l has a issue....It starts fine, but once in while, it will not idle at start up. You have to tach at about 1500 for a few minutes, and then get on the road fast. After about 5 min of driving, it idles fine.....what gives? Oh, and this dosnt happen every time, just once out of every ten times...

Its hard to tell without me being able to see a scanner installed, but it seems as if the IAC valve may be sticking, but then again ive seen these same engines have a bad coil pack and do the same. I recomend taking the IAC (idle air control) valve off it and cleaning it and the chamber where it mounts, possible use some carb cleaner and some copmressed air, but watch out for the mass sensor as high pressure will damage its sensor. also clean out the throttle body where the fly closes in it.

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

What's the steps to do an idle re-learn on a 2007


Hold the idle at 2000 RPM for 2 minutes then drop it to 1500 for 2 minutes and then 1000 for 2 minutes, then let it return to idle for 5 minutes. Full relearn requires some driving as well, mixed low and highway speed and idle time.

Sounds like it could be the throttle position sensor.
