86 Bronco II Idle Problem

I have a 1986 Bronco II (2.9 L fuel injected) that will not idle. It will start right up and I can keep it running as long as I have my foot on the gas.
Could someone help me narrow this problem down.

Bear with me, I'm not too familiar with this model, it's been a while, but it sounds like you either need to adjust the throttle cable or TB itself.

Re: 86 Bronco II Idle Problem

Did it suddenly start doing that? you could also have a vacuum leak. If you let off the throttle slowly, how low will it get before it dies?
