Poor family needs help on 1990 5.0 wagon
I am helping a family with their 1990 Ford Country Squire wagon (that was donated to them).
Engine: 5.0 F.I.
The car sat for about 6 years and was started only once a year.
I have done the following:
- new fuel pump and strainer
- new water temp sensor
- new water temp switch
- new coil, distr. cap and rotor
PROBLEM: the car has a super fast idle and sometimes slows down when engine light comes on.
23, 34, 91,63,34
Took the following parts to Autozone and all tested good:
- idle air
- throttle (tps)
I unplugged the positive batt term to reset the codes.
I started it up and it died, repeated the process several times until it stayed running and then it established this super fast idle.
I am stumped. This family needs a good car and I need to get it running.
The car is in great shape and does run smooth, just too fast!
I appreciate any and all help.
