Idling way to HIGH....Help please!
I’m New to this forum. Not new to car’s though. We have recently had a problem with our 92 Ford Thunderbird 5.0 V-8. On my wife’s way home the car began idling between 2300 – 2800. She got the car home, and my first thoughts were a vacuum leak. I used a can of carb cleaner and sprayed liberally all over vacuum lines, intake and the manifold, throttle body etc. I found nothing. I noticed that the exhaust manifolds were turning cherry red with in 3 – 5 min’s. Which again could be due to a lean situation due to un-metered air . Since I found no vacuum leak, I am beginning to think that maybe the timing had jumped. My next question is checking timing. Where is the spout in connector? If anyone has any suggestions please help me out with this.
