I have an 03 f150 with a 5.4 engine. Truck starts and runs great when cold. Once it is warmed up is when the idle problem shows up. If I stop to run into a store or get gas and then restart the warm engine...


The symptom of which you are describing is known as "hunting"
for idle.
You need an idle air bypass solenoid, otherwise known as an IAC. The part mounts right on the throttle body. Sometimes they can be cleaned, but for around fifty dollars, I would suggest a new one.

My 2.0 engine idles fast on a cold start. Then idles down after warming up.


This is normally the way it is suppose to work. You need to have the RPM measured for High RPM and duration. What you are describing is how an electronic choke is suppose to work.

The errors would be how high the RPM goes and for how long it lasts. When cold the RPM, fuel mix and timing are changed to give a rich fuel mix. As the O2 sensors warm(Could be defective) they signal the engine to lean up. The water thermostat also has something to do changing the engine to a lean running slow condition.

If obtaining heat from your heater seems to take Forever, the thermostat could be weak. This would coincide with the engine continuing at a high RPM longer because it is not warming up.

My 83 Ford Bronco keeps cutting off at every stop. it puffs like it's fighting to stay on before it go's out please help.


Sounds like your Carb needs to be tuned. If that doesn't do it rebuild or Buy a new one.

When I get in my Chevy First start of the day I press the gas pedal to the Floor 2 times and then hit the key to start it and it starts right up at a fast idle then you have to manually kick it down to a lower idle by putting it to the floor and letting off real fast kicking it to a normal running idle.
It could benefit you to let it warm up a bit longer also. I have to give my chevy 5-10 minutes before I drive off in it..


Might try and run some fuel stabilizer through it. Stuff that will remove water and other things that will make your motor run worse (maybe run a better grade of fuel in it).


When was the last time you replaced the Spark plugs? That could also benefit you. Just the general tune up things could make a world of difference.


Also if it does this when the motor is fully warmed up you might turn up your idle as that could be a problem. Let me know what works for you.

How do I adjust the idell on a 1990 chevy S-10? Too fast now


The distributor cap and rotor if it is not in the right place or order would change the timing of your vehicle causing this problem so you first should check the timing with a timing gun and know how to use one but if you do not then try to have someone else that does and check timing first.

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

Maytag dryer electric mde2400ayw doesn't seem to dry clothes and it doesn't feel warm inside


Sometimes blower wheels will get loose in dryers. Sometimes they will get a whole lump of lint in them or you can hear a rattling noise in the dryer, this is the blower wheel, its worn out and it can cause the fuse to blow too,or it can half *** work and take fifty forever's to dry the clothes.Or it could be just that the dryer needs a good blowing out .I use a lawn blower to get all the lint out of the dryer as well as the vent pipe and vent to outside. I take the filter HOUSING out and wash it also. That is, I remove the housing and clean is good! Making sure that the dryer is properly flowing air is a good thing!

not a oo2 but maybe a IAC (idle air controll ) you should try and clean it with carb cleaner before replacing it.
