Re: 1998 5.4 with a mind of its own
Well I replaced the TPS went on a test drive and when I pulled into the drive the throttle stuck again. I have moisture in the engine and at the cold temps here (North Pole, Alaska) when the PCV valve is working it sucks the moisture into the throttle body. Somebody told me Ford had a recall for this problem. Has anyone ever heard of the recall? Or had this problem and figured out a fix. I'm thinking about a thumb warmer from snow mobile or atv siliconed to the bottom of throttle body. If truck sits for about five minutes engine heat will thaw it and it works again.
