stalling bad

I have an 86 crown vic LTD 5.0 and when in park you have to give it some gas before puttign it in drive unless it will stall. Also while sitting idle in drive it will stall if left too long with otu gas. Anyone think they can help?

Re: stalling bad

Could be dirty idle air control valve, or a vacuum leak somewhere. Start by checking all your vacuum lines and make sure you don't have any cracks.

On the throttle body on the upper intake. It should be on the side of the throttle body facing towards the front of the car.
