Re: EF won't idle
Any time the battery is disconnected the transmission must releran the wide open throttle positions to enable the PCM to determine the correct gear for every throttle position.
with engine hot (normal temp), place trans in drive, air con off and idle engine for 60 seconds min. Then turn the engine off (only) - ignition on (dash warning lights on) and auto in drive flatten accelerator pedal and hold it on the floor for a minimum of one minute. Then return auto to park position and switch off the ignition.
