Question about Ford F-150

1 Answer

Truck starts and idles down as normal. If one guns it the revs will soar. If one tries to increase the rpm gradually the engine quits at about 2000 rpm. At this point if one lifts ones foot of the gas peddle the truck will idle. If one keeps ones foot on the gas peddle the truck will stall out. When it stalls it will restaart as normal. The truck stalls every time one tries to drive off in a normal fashion. I am at a loss.

You may have a vacuum leak. My problem was with the L-shaped rubber hose at the top of the engine near the firewall. It had collapsed and dry-rotted. Replaced it and my truck runs like a gem. I believe it was fouling out my coils on plugs. This may not work, but would not hurt to try. Good Luck!

    Mad Irish, I also check all of my vacuum hoses to ensure that they were properly attached and not dry-rotted. The rubber boot/hose cost me $7 at AutoZone. Good Luck, hope it works.

Why does my Accord intermittently start and die?


Look at your tachometer, it should be at least 750 RPM...if you have a manual, look for the exact Idle RPM.

If the idle speed is too slow it can cause the engine to quit, sometimes even if you just step on the brake.

Hope this helps.

Every time i start my car it sounds like the revs are high then settles to normal revs what is causing this


If the idle speed is above 2000 RPM then drops down to normal, the common cause is a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body.

Engine is not ticking over at the correct RPM


first try using redexe fuel additive (a full bottle to 5gallons)to clean injectors/fuel pump.
your car has a fuel cutoff valve,saves fuel when coasting(over 1800 revs,if you put car in nuetral going down hill you use fuel,so you are wasting fuel in neutral.but you have read the handbook cos it tells you in there.......

BATTERY GOES DEAD OVERNIGHT


Check that the alternator and charging circuit is actually working. You can do this with a voltmeter across the battery terminals. Check the value with the ignition off - you should see 12.1 and 12.5 volts. Then start the engine and leave it on idle - you should see between 13.8 to 14.2 volts. Watch the voltmeter as the gas is pressed down. With the engine revving around 2000 rpm the voltmeter value should increase up to something like 14 to 14.2 V but not increase any further with an increase of engine revs. If you see voltages of 14.5V or above then the voltage regulator needs replacing.

Note that if you constantly see voltages of 12V or less with the engine switched off then the battery should be replaced as it will not hold charge and gradually drain down as you are experiencing to a point where it will not turn the car engine.

If you don’t see any increase in battery voltage, or the battery voltage falls, when the engine is switched on then either the alternator or the voltage regulator need to be replaced.

TAKE THE AIR CLEANER OFF THE INLET MANIFOLD LOOK DOWN THE THROAT AND SEE WHERE THE BUTTERFLY IS SITTING YOU WILL SEE WHERE YOU ADJUST THE IDLE,YOU ADJUST THE IDLE SPEED BY BY TURNING THE STOP PLATE ADJUSTING SCREW TO INCREASE RPM SCREW IN TO DECREASE RPM SCREW OUT__ NOW !!!BE SURE TO ....LOCK THE ADJUSTING SCREW WITH THE LOCKNUT I THINK THAT IS WHERE YOU TROUBLE WILL BE ...
