Stalling in idle

continuation of previous problems Rough idle and stall

After I replaced the spark plugs, the rough idle is basically gone. The problem of stalling when fully warmed up and it is warm outside still exists......

last night after getting home, I got something to eat and got in to go to the store. Started up the car, listened to the idle, it was idling low. and then it stalled. it wasn't rough idling like it did before, it just stalled.

Anyone have any ideas?


I think I am going to go 800 miles down, 800 back the last week in april and see what the car does, though.

Re: Stalling in idle

have you checked your fuel pump? I think I have asked that in the past and never got a response. I know that I said before that there was a recall on the pump and ford told you that yours would not get replaced under that, but have you tested the thing?

Also have you checked the IAC? Have you looked at the MAF to see if it needs cleaning?

Re: Stalling in idle

another thing is have you looked at replacing the TStat? That can be one of the issues.

Re: Stalling in idle

As stated in the other thread you had in hot 4s

Could be any of the following.....

1. fouled plugs,
2. bad wires,
3. your iac,
4. the dpfe. -- The DPFE should set of the CEL but 9 times out of 10 I have seen it not set of the CEL.
5. Fuel Filter is clogged up
6. Fuel pump failure.
7. your O2 sensors,
8. MAF sensor -- Remove the elec connector on it. If it idles better than the sensor is dirty.

Rough idle and Stall

Re: Stalling in idle

accessviolatio, I was glad there was a chat about the problem you were having.

Last week Ford has replaced my Fuel pump (under service recall - FOC), fuel filter, replaced my oxygen senser, PVC, and probably cured a lot...The care continued to idle badly and continued to hesitate on the hwy. I replaced the sparkplugs myself with NGK Iridium spakplugs, and now it runs like a charm...
