Question PLEASE HELP, ENGINE NOT IDLING 92 f150

we have a 1992 f150 5 litre 5 speed, we are having problems with engine not idling.

have replaced the egr valve, the intake manifold gasket, iac sensor, throttle positioning sensor.

When you start it up in the morning, engine reves high, does not return to an idle automatically. when engine is warmed up, engines reves when shifting gears and engine chugs as if it was flooding at an idle. if you unplug the iac sensor, engine returns to proper idle.

could this be the coolant temperature sensor???

any help would be appreciated.

Run this test and see if you get any codes. Ford Fuel Injection � How To Run a Self-Test

Re: PLEASE HELP, ENGINE NOT IDLING 92 f150

According to the Ford shop manual, your truck has 2 digit codes and the cars had 3. The TPS is below .6 volts and the O2 sensor showed lean. Could be connection problems. I'll have to search further.

Re: PLEASE HELP, ENGINE NOT IDLING 92 f150

The gray/white wire sends the signal. Here's what the readings should be.

Throttle Angle Voltage
Idle 0.95 V
20° 1.44 V
30° 1.90 V
40° 2.37 V
50° 2.84 V
60° 3.31 V
70° 3.78 V
80° WOT 4.24 V

You can also clean the throttle plate and try a new TPS. After the code 63 is fixed, then run it awhile and see if the 41 comes back

Those are the readings at the gray/white wire. Have you cleaned the throttle plate?

Thumbs up Re: PLEASE HELP, ENGINE NOT IDLING 92 f150

my husband has already cleaned the throttle plate., but has not checked voltage readings yet. We are having a heat wave here in Ontario right now, staying in air conditioning as much as possible., but will let you know what happens with the readings,

thanks once again for your support.

Re: PLEASE HELP, ENGINE NOT IDLING 92 f150

hi,

my husband did voltage test, everything was fine except map sensor is suppose to read 5 volts with no vaccuum, and only reads 2.5 volts., could not test with vaccuum, because dont have a vaccuum pump at this moment, will have one tomorrow to test.

he also checked that there was voltage from the computer to the sensors.

any thoughts??
