Hard starting and rough idle


The idle valve is the most common problem for hard starting in cold weather. I would recommend having it removed and inspected for contamination. Sometimes they can be cleaned out. If it has heavy carbon buildup, you may have to replace it. (if the idle valve is removed, the shutter inside should easily move when you rotate it from side to side and you can also look at it with a flashlight for a visual inspection.

Ford probe idle fluctuating


Sounds like you have bad gas. It can get strong mix of gas to give you the right idle, but when it has water mix, it will cause the car to fire like it should. This will then give you a low, rough, or just cutting off idle. Try mixing water remover in with the gas. You may have to drain the gas out or just drive it like it is until the tank is almost empty. Fill up with gas (from a different store) and you may want to change the plugs after the good gas is through the system. I'm not saying the plugs are bad, but there may be a lot of moisture beads from the water sitting causing rust.

Truck will not stay running without giving gas after a jump off


when the battery goes dead it looses its memory on engine settings like idle speed.. two things you can do first one is to clean the throttle bore with carb cleaner... the other is to start with foot on gas and slowly bring it back to idle... it will pick up the idle air position to keep itself running if you do it slowly... everything happens over time so as the throttle gets dirty the computer makes these adjustment on its own and when the battery dies it starts out basicly at different percentage of idle control tht it really needs because of the carbon buildup on the throttle plates
