Mountianeer Stalling all the time

hey guys.

I have a 1999 Mountianeer v6 4.0. It has been starting rough and just yesterday it started to stall all the time. Now I cannot take my foot off of the gas without it stalling.

I do not have a check engine light.

I did some reading and it looks like the IAC is what I need to replace.

where is that in the car? and should I clean that 1st before replacing it? I have little knowledge of cars and I want to learn so I do not have to pay the dealership a ton of money to get it fixed. can you help me out?

jon

Re: Mountianeer Stalling all the time

my wifes aerostar had the same problem. go to the air filter box and follow the large rubber intake tube back towards the motor. you should come to a spot close to where the tube connects to the intake with a big hose clamp around it. go past the end of the clamp onto the aluminum intake about an inch to three inches or so, and on top, you will see the iac solenoid, it is bolted down with two bolts is barrel shaped with two or three wires coming out the end of it. it looks like a C size flashlight battery sitting on it's side, with the wires coming out of the end. it is about two inches long, and maybe an inch around. it is an electromechanical device. there may be a small hard plastic cover over it. if so, take the cover off, unbolt it and unplug the wires, the bottom will have a lot of black carbon on it, and there is a small shaft inside that will be dirty too. try spraying it with electrical contact cleaner, if that don't do it, spray it with carb cleaner, then lube the shaft with wd 40, make sure it's dry, then stick it back in. otherwise buy a new one at autozone. the ford dealer will charge you 78 bucks for one. hope this helps

tinyjon - sounds like the problem I had last year with my 99 Explorer.
I still had a warranty then so the dealership worked on it (no money, but tons of aggro). Among other things, they changed the IAC and fuel pump.
Did you get it replaced? Did it work?

Try this site as it gives pretty easy to follow directions for replacing the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBr...3d800b98f5.jsp

It's the Idol Air Control Valve. Your better of replacing it then messing around cleaning it. Go to your local autozone or other part store. It cost about 39.99. Better off replacing it then having it go bad again somewhere you don't wanna be.

Re: Mountianeer Stalling all the time

Thanks Bob40. Your info was right on. Of course because I found the info online, my boyfriend and the mechanic next door ignored it, and kept searching for other causes. Replaced the AIC today. Runs GREAT! Thanks again.

Re: Mountianeer Stalling all the time

May have been a little hasty. Mountaineer is still stalling...less than before though. Any other ideas?
