Help! Idle problems...
Good afternoon everyone!
Well I recently bought a 1995 Escort LX and from the getgo have problems.. at first the alternator would not charge went ahead and got that replaced with a brand new one. Now the car will not idle long without dying :(
If its cold it will idle up high for a while then slowly go down. Once it warms up it will idle surge till it dies. If you put it into drive or reverse it will stall out on you.
While I was at advance I decided to get a few more things to replace and clean up. Air filter was replaced, PCV valve, changed the fuel filter still dying on me.
Cleaned up the IAC valve no luck. I am unable to take off the TPS sensor because superman apparently had the car before me and apparently he had to replace the TPS sensor, so I was unable to take it off. I eventually got so frustrated with it removed the whole throttle body and took the TPS sensor with me to take it off in that event I accidently unplugged a hose that connects to the throttle body from the underside after the blade. I am unsure where this hose goes if anyone could tell me where it goes Ill be happy to plug that back in but i looked all over and am unable to find it.
Any more suggestions or tips to get this car running? Really has me frustrated.. thanks!
