Grand Marq won't idle....
Hi, I know I should introduce myself in another forum, but my name is Skip, I live in Austin, Texas.
I have an older Grand Marquis, it's a 1988 with the 5 Liter V8.
It's a nice running car, big ol' boat that I love to cruise around in, but I have a problem that I hope someone could help me with.
She won't idle. She'll start, and will run with your foot on the gas, but for some reason, and I'm not sure why, she just doesn't idle. I'm hoping that it might be something in the throttle body that's clogged, and I've got some seafoam that I plan on letting it suck up through a vacuum hose to see if that cleans out some stuff, but if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to throw them my way. I vaguely remember an issue that's somewhat similar to this, so if anyone has any info, I'd love to hear it!
